First Goalscorer Lionel Messi 3/1 with Paddy Power

This will be the ninth meeting between Argentina and Australia with both sides recently meeting at last year’s World Cup finals. That round-of-16 showdown in Qatar was a third such tournament clash which saw the would-be world champions register a 2-1 success thus maintaining their 100% record. On that day Lionel Messi and Julián Alvarez netted for Lionel Scaloni’s while Enzo Fernández scored an own goal. Current manager Graham Arnold played in Australia’s only win in the eight previous meetings with Argentina; 4-1 in a Bicentennial Gold Cup game played in Sydney in July 1988 (lost six).
