Argentina vs Mexico match prediction

Mexico appear over the odds at first glance being $6.50 in a two horse race but recent history between these two sides does not bode well for the North American team against Argentina.

Argentina disposed of three solid teams in the group stage with quiet efficiency and although they were exposed down back at times they were always in control.

The Mexicans have the cattle to serve it up to Argentina here but we fancy the South Americans to have a comfortable win against a team they have had no problem beating in recent times.
