Lionel Messi and Co. had to get back on their feet after the shock defeat against Saudi Arabia last time out. Another loss here would send one of the pre-tournament favorites home early.
Even a draw would make Argentina sweat ahead of Matchday 3, so Lionel Scaloni’s side need all three points on Saturday.
Mexico, who drew 0-0 in their first game against Poland, are looking to maintain their excellent record of reaching the knockout stages of the World Cup at every tournament since 1994.
Kick-off is at 19:00 GMT. Make sure you know how to watch World Cup 2022 anywhere.

Players to watch / key battles
Argentina seemed spooked by Saudi Arabia’s pressing and high defensive line on matchday one, but they’ll be better prepared if Mexico try to face them here.
Getting Messi to the ball between the lines will be crucial while Angel Di Maria remains a key player at 34.
Mexico are a possession-based team under Tata Martino but could take a more counter-attacking approach here, with Hirving Lozano likely to be an important valve down the flanks.

If you’re out of the country for the 2022 World Cup, you won’t be able to watch as usual on your home streaming service. The sender knows where you are based on your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from viewing it. However, you can use a VPN to bypass this without resorting to illegal feeds found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), provided it complies with your broadcaster’s terms and conditions, creates a private connection between your device and t’internet, meaning the service can’t figure out where you are and lets you watch. And all information that goes in between is fully encrypted, anonymous and secure – and that’s a result.
There are many inexpensive options out there. For the 2022 World Cup, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
