Match Preview

Ramiro Funes Mori Argentina

After a 2-0 Argentina victory over Mexico on Friday, the two teams meet again to close out the 2018 international calendar.

There will be different lineups, with both interim managers looking to give opportunities to players who didn't see much time in the first match between the two teams. Mexico's caretaker boss Tuca Ferretti has tried to give opportunities to young players, though those efforts have been somewhat stifled by injuries.

Still, with four Europe-based players heading back to join their clubs there will likely be plenty of minutes for players like Pachuca midfielder Victor Guzman and Santos Laguna defender Gerardo Arteaga.

Argentina, meanwhile, will keep a few players in the starting XI from the last game but will also give youth a chance.

Midfielder Santiago Ascacibar is set to get a chance from the start, along with centre-back Walter Kannemann, who many players on Mexico's team will know from his time with Atlas. The 27-year-old is seeking just his third cap but is coming off a strong Copa Libertadores campaign with Gremio.

There may be a place in the lineup for Inter forward Mauro Icardi and Tottenham winger Erik Lamela, who is looking to nab a spot on next year's Copa America squad after a long injury absence kept him out of the national team.
