Argentina vs Mexico Live | International Friendlies | Date: Saturday, 17 November 2018 | Kick-Off at 00:00 UK / 01:00 CET | Venue: Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes (Cordoba)
Argentina hopes to recover from a 1-0 loss to Brazil while Mexico hosts a friendly against Mexico on Friday night at the Mario Alberto Kempes Stadium in Cordoba. Both teams are going through a period of reincarnation after their respective failures in the World Cup.
The Albiceleste played against Iraq and Brazil with a completely different team than the one that eliminated on the 16th of this season in Russia. However, the new manager, Lionel Scaloni, could have been happy with what he saw during the friendly matches in October. Albiceleste should have beaten Iraq 0-4 before holding the best team in Brazil in a 0-0 draw until 93 minutes when the central defender of Inter Miranda scored.
Argentina will not have its main stars (Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero, Angel Di Maria, Ever Banega, Federico Fazio and Nicolas Otamendi), but personalities such as Mauro Icardi, Paulo Dybala and Giovanni Simeone promise moments of entertainment in front of the Mexican.

- Argentina has been much more successful in the more recent history of Tete-A-Tete.

Argentina vs Mexico: Prediction
If Argentina plays without its main stars, what should we say about Mexico that will be even more disabled here in Córdoba? The interim manager, Ricardo Ferretti, will be without captain Abdres Guardado, Giovani dos Santos, Hector Herrera, Jesus Molina, Jonathan dos Santos, Jesus Manuel Corona, Javier Hernandez, and Carlos Vela, among others.
To make matters worse, PSV’s talisman, Hirving Lozano, injured his hamstring and is no longer available. The front wolf, Raúl Jiménez, remains the only offensive option for Mexicans.
Based on everything that written above, we must see the Argentines as great favorites here and we will support them to win the victory with a 1.60 odds.
