Argentina is measured this Saturday from 8:00 p.m. with Australia in the round of 16 of the World Cup in Qatar.

After the initial defeat against Saudi Arabia, the Albiceleste, with all the pressure on them, reacted with two victories against Mexico (2-0) and Poland (0-2) to qualify as first in group C. The team led by Leo Messi also They are under some kind of pressure tonight against the Socceroos, as they are clearly favourites: of the last 39 games they have only lost one —precisely against the Saudis—, but also because Argentina is number three in the FIFA ranking of national teams and Australia occupies the 38th place.

Argentina - Australia in 1993: Grondona's "fast coffee" and Maradona's farewell

Andres Burgo

Although Argentina and Australia will face each other this Saturday for the first time in a World Cup, in 1993 they staged a duel that was very similar to it: they resolved the last place in the 1994 World Cup in the United States in a dramatic play-off. They were two games in limbo legal, without anti-doping control, in Sydney and Buenos Aires, which marked the return of Diego Maradona to the Albiceleste after three and a half years, after the runner-up in Italy 1990, but which were also a farewell: the idol - who said that he and some of his players consumed a "fast coffee" to gain a physical advantage in the absence of controls - he would no longer officially play in his country after that 1-0 victory against the Oceanics at the Monumental.

Almost three decades later, Argentina begs for another match with Australia (this Saturday, at 8:00 p.m.),
