Latest Argentina vs Mexico Betfred Odds

Argentina to win by 2+

There’s must win games and there’s must win games. This is the latter.

If pre tournament second favourites, Argentina lose here, they are toast. Luckily the other game in Group B ended up goalless, so the situation isn’t as bad as it could have been.

La Albiceleste actually looked terrific in the first 30 minutes against the Saudis and could have been three or four to the good before they capitulated.

Mexico looked shocking against Poland and had to rely on keeper Guillermo Ochoa to save them yet again from the penalty spot.

I’m expecting the real Argentina to show up here and batter the Mexicans.

Lautaro Martinez to score

Martinez looked very threatening in the first game and was unlucky to see two goals chalked off for offside.

The Inter man has 21 in 41 for the Argentines and I fancy him to get on the score sheet again here.

Hector Moreno to be carded

Monterrey centre-back Moreno is the man tasked with containing Martinez and Messi and he could find himself in bother.

Moreno was carded in the Poland game and has 22 cautions in his long international career.

The three selections pay 12/1 using our #PickYourPunt feature.
