Argentina and Mexico play the second friendly match within a few days. Lionel Scaloni could use a much-changed home team for the match at Estadio Malvinas Argentinas in Mendoza.
Argentina lost one game after eliminating from the World Cup. It was a defeat after a gap in the friendly game with Brazil in mid-October. National Albiceleste looks very good at this time, and Lionel Scaloni is still working on creating better game relationships within the team and raising the morale of the players.
Mexico fails to overcome a period of very bad results. The team has six defeats in the last seven matches, and in the absence of players like Andres Guardado, Giovani dos Santos, Hector Herrera, Jesus Molina, Jonathan dos Santos, Jesus Manuel Corona, Javier Hernandez, Carlos Vela and Hirving Lozano, this balance is likely worsened Tuesday night.
Although he had superior possession in the previous match, Mexico has failed to create too many good phases of attack. Argentina was much more dangerous and could score even more goals.
Even if a band that is very different from the one used by South Americans in the tournament match, they should still be imposed. I expect to see at least two goals scored, the hosts being most likely to help us in this regard.
PREDICTION: Under 2.5 goals @ 1.68
