Mexico striker Javier Hernandez

Argentina vs Mexico: El Tri value versus weakened foes

Kick-off: 0100, 11/09/2019

Stadium: Alamodome

Mexico have gone nine games against Argentina without a win but may be a value bet to buck that trend when they meet in a San Antonio friendly.

El Tri have named an experienced squad for this contest, which takes place a week ahead of their Independence Day, and are coming off a 3-0 triumph over USA.

La Albiceleste are without some of their star names and only drew 0-0 with Chile, so let’s take a chance on the underdogs at 14/5 for our first Argentina vs Mexico prediction.

A Look At Argentina’s Betting Odds

Argentina performed with credit at this summer’s Copa America, securing third place with a 2-1 victory over Chile after losing out to hosts Brazil in the semis.

However, Lionel Messi, Sergio Aguero and Angel Di Maria were just three of the key players absent for a rematch of that bronze medal contest in Los Angeles.

Despite both sides fielding experimental line-ups, that was a feisty affair, with 10 yellow cards handed out.

La Albiceleste were the more creative outfit, with Paulo Dybala and Lautaro Martinez looking lively, while debutant defender Lucas Martinez Quarta hit the bar late on.

This is only a moderate squad by their own high standards, though, and 29/4 for Draw HT/Mexico FT is another tempting option from the Argentina vs Mexico odds.

A Look At Mexico’s Betting Odds

Mexico enjoyed an even better summer, going unbeaten through the CONCACAF Gold Cup before edging out hosts America 1-0 in the final.

The scoreline was more emphatic when those teams met again in New Jersey over the weekend, with talismanic striker Javier Hernandez, Erick Gutierrez of PSV and Uriel Antuna on target.

El Tri had to save a penalty to keep USA at bay but will still take great heart from the biggest win over their great rivals in over a decade.

Atletico Madrid ace Hector Herrera, Jonathan dos Santos, Napoli winger Hirving Lozano and Wolves forward Raul Jimenez are also included in a set-up full of proven performers.

We’re finishing off our Argentina vs Mexico betting tips by taking 11/5 for Gerardo Martino’s team to score more than once.
