Coming into this fixture, this team cannot afford to lose in this game as it will end their hopes for the title. They are currently seating in the second spot in their group, and are hoping to turn things around in this game. This team failed to be as impressive as everyone expected, which keeps them from being at the top of the group. They even had a hard time going against Mexico and relied on luck when they won against them. In this game, they need to take a notch so they could secure their progress to the next round. An impressive squad is no longer surprising for Argentina, but they need to play as one. Unity is what lacks in them, and this is what they need to work out if they want to qualify in the next round.

As expected it will be Lionel Messi who will lead Argentina, but other guys are expected to step up as well. Enzo Fernandez had an impressive game against Mexico, and his squad is hoping for an identical performance.
