The match will be officiated by an Italian crew, led by referee Daniele Orsato. The two assistant referees will be Ciro Carbone and Alessandro Giallatini. Orsato was the referee for the World Cup opener between Qatar and Ecuador. Ecuador won the match 2-0 with a penalty shot in the 16th minute and a 31st minute goal, both by Enner Valencia. Orsato booked Qatar for four yellow cards and Ecuador for two.

Argentina is a -190 favorite to win at DraftKings Sportsbook while Mexico is +600. A draw is installed at +310. Argentina lost a 2-1 stunner to Saturday last Tuesday, arguably one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history. Mexico played Poland to a 0-0 draw, which makes this match a must-win for both sides.
