The South Americans have been on a good winning streak after losing to Saudi Arabia in the first group game.

And they need to be in form if they are to face a resilient Australia side with solid Harry Souttar defence.

This is the first time Australia have reached this stage of a World Cup since 2006 and only the second time in the country’s history.

Graham Arnold’s men are hoping to go a step further than they did 16 years ago, when they narrowly lost to eventual winners Italy.

How did you come here?

Argentina suffered the first of many major upsets of the tournament so far, as Saudi Arabia stole a shocking 2-1 win from Lionel Scaloni’s side in the opening game.

However, they rebounded impressively, winning their next two games 2–0 against Mexico and Poland respectively to top Group C

Australia began their campaign in a similar fashion, losing to reigning champions France 4-1 after taking a goal lead.

But like their opponents, back-to-back victories in their last two games against Tunisia and Denmark meant Australia qualified second, just missing out on first place on goal difference.

Team News

Both teams are expected to have full squads to choose from when they meet in the round of 16.

However, with such a short playing time, the managers could decide to make some changes before the clash.

Lisandro Martinez could return for Argentina while Nicolas Tagliafico will also try to start at left-back ahead of Marcos Acuna.

Enzo Fernandes has impressed in recent games and is hoping to beat Leandro Paredes for a place in the starting XI.

For the Socceroos, Aaron Mooy will be hoping to retain his place while Mitchell Duke will look to lead the line after impressing throughout the tournament so far.

Who will the star men be?

Lionel Messi, who will play his 1000th game of his career, has been Argentina’s undeniable star for the past decade and the PSG striker has continued to impress throughout the tournament, lifting the Man of the Match award against Mexico.

Premier League duo Alexis Mac Allister and Julian Alvarez will also be looking to capitalize on their good performances against Poland, where they each scored one goal.

Australia’s Harry Souttar has been the star of the tournament so far, with the defender holding a strong hand in defence.

Despite conceding four goals against France in the opening game, Souttar was instrumental in Australia’s first World Cup clean sheet.

What is head to head?

The round of 16 clash marks the first time the two sides have met in 15 years, with their 2007 game ending in a 1-0 victory for Argentina.

It is the South American team that has the better record between the two, with five wins from seven games plus a draw and a lone Australian win in the two’s first meeting in 1988.
