Lionel Messi will give 1 or more assists (+290)
Interesting odds offered by PointsBet for the best goalscorer so far this season for PSG (a team that is full of stars and yet has the Argentine 10 as the best goalscorer). He scored on 11 occasions in 15 Ligue 1 appearances, and with Leandro Paredes likely to be absent for the next game and Rodrigo De Paul in a low level, Messi could provide that final pass before the goal.
Hirving Lozano will score 2 or more shots on goal (+500)
Although speed, dribbling and attacking skills is what characterizes Mexico’s best player, what the Argentine defense showed in the first match invites the winger to use different tools to find the goal. It is quite likely, then, that this quota will materialize.
Who will score the first goal: Argentina (-225) / No goals (+850) / Mexico (+240)
We foresee a match in which Argentina will go all or nothing against Mexico, so it will create more goal situations. But beware, Gerardo Martino’s team can be very dangerous on the counter-attack, especially because of the speed with which they pass from defense to attack and the poor performance shown by the Argentine defense. Betting on Mexico, then, is a temptation…
Will there be a penalty kick? Yes (+290) / No (-450)
The VAR has an unprecedented role, and as far as penalties are concerned. Any slight grip imperceptible to the eye of the referee or spectators will be seen by the technology. In such a close game and with two teams that will be attacking, there is a great chance of a penalty.
Argentina will score 3 goals or more: Yes (+250) / No (-325)
Will this one be the match in which Lionel Messi and Lautaro Martínez make the difference in the scoring charts? Mexico has one of its best assets in Memo Ochoa, and the goal anxiety that characterizes Martino’s teams usually leaves them in complicated situations for opponents counterattacks.
