Argentina vs Australia Head To Head
Argentina has faced Australia seven times in history and has won on five occasions, losing just once – a 4-1 defeat in their first-ever meeting back in 1988 at the Bicentennial Gold Cup.
The Albiceleste are currently on a four-game winning run in the fixture, which includes a 1-0 friendly defeat of the Socceroos in their last meeting in September 2007. Martín Demichelis was on the scoresheet that day in the 49th minute, while a young Lionel Messi played for the entirety of the game but couldn’t find the back of the net.
This will be his second appearance against the Australian side and will be hoping for better luck this time around. Should he score, Australia will also be the 35th country he’s scored against. Australia is gearing up for one of their biggest-ever matches when they face Argentina in the last-16 of the World Cup.
Mathew Leckie’s second-half strike was enough to see off an underwhelming Denmark side in Al-Wakrah, with Tunisia’s victory over France having no impact on the Socceroos’ progress to the knockouts. By finishing second in their group, they face a huge challenge in Argentina to make the last eight of the World Cup for the first time in the country’s history.
