This is a must-win game for Argentina, as they were stunned by Saudi Arabia last time out.

Mexico drew 0-0 against Poland in their opening match and will be looking to reach the knockout stages.

Mexico has never beaten Argentina in three World Cup attempts. Victory here will end both Lionel Messi and Argentina's presence in the FIFA World Cup 2022. 

Mexico's Guillermo Ochoa was the hero against Poland, saving Robert Lewandowski's penalty to score for the Mexicans. 

With both sides desperate to avoid defeat, it would be worthwhile to settle for a goalless 45 minutes at the Lusail Stadium. 

Argentina has a good record against Mexico and has won 16 of the 35 matches between the two teams. 

Argentina were on a run of 13 wins against non-European nations at the World Cup before beating Saudi Arabia this week. 

Argentina must bounce back against Mexico on Saturday or face an embarrassing exit.

Prediction: Argentina  2-1  Mexico
