Two teams desperate for a result meet Saturday in the World Cup as Argentina face Mexico.

The Argentines were shocked in their opening match, falling 2-1 to Saudi Arabia after having gone up early in the game. As one of the pre-tournament favourites, the Albiceleste no longer have any margin for error if they are to advance to the knockout round, and they'll take on a Mexican side eager for an upset.

Following a scoreless draw against Poland, the Mexicans are still looking for their first goal in Qatar despite dominating the possession and shooting statistics in their opening match. While Mexico can't expect to have as much of the ball against Argentina, they now have a blueprint to defeat the South Americans thanks to the Saudis.
