What Messi fears most about Mexico at Qatar 2022 and it’s not Ochoa
Everything went uphill for Lionel Messi and Argentina now that they will face Mexico, La Pulga is afraid
Mexico and Argentina are playing for their lives on Matchday 2 of Group C in the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Both teams failed to win their first matches and if they want to stay in the competition they will have to get three points in this match. In this situation, the captain of the Albiceleste already has a big concern before the match.
Lionel Messi is aware of two things. First, the tactical order shown by the Mexican national team in the first match against Poland and second, that Gerardo Martino is a coach who has already trained him and knows certain positions that he has played since his time at FC Barcelona.
Historically, Mexico has never beaten the Argentine national team in a World Cup. However, the Mexican national team may have a great option today against an Argentina that is hurting from its first defeat and has not been able to finish transcending in this competition that it yearns for so much.
What happens if Argentina does not beat Mexico?
If Argentina loses to Mexico, the team is eliminated from the World Cup, if Argentina defeats Mexico, it has many options, even to pass as first place in the group. On the other hand, a draw between the two would not help the interests of the Argentine team since they do not depend on themselves.
