Argentina vs Australia Live Stream: How to Watch the Round 0f 16 FIFA World Cup Match Online from Anywhere

The South Americans' opening-round loss to Saudi Arabia was one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history.

Argentina started their Qatar World Cup campaign with a major disaster but has since been unstoppable. Bouncing back from the initial setback with two back-to-back wins against Mexico and Poland, Argentina finished Group C as the table topper and will now take on Australia on Saturday in the Round of 16.

Although Lionel Messi and his men are clear favorites, anything can be expected given that this edition of the World Cup has already seen quite a few major upsets, with big names like Germany, Belgium and Denmark having been eliminated. Hence Argentina cannot be complacent. Here's how to watch Argentina vs Australia Round of 16 World Cup match.

Argentina are favorites to beat Australia on Saturday in order to fulfill Lionel Messi's dream of winning his first World Cup, but they have learned more than anyone else not to take an underdog team lightly, particularly the valiant Socceroos.

The South Americans' opening-round loss to Saudi Arabia was one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history, but they quickly regained their composure to cruise through Mexico and Poland and into the round of 16.

Australia, which is placed 35 places below Argentina, has already outperformed expectations by winning twice to secure a spot at one of the most important games in their history this weekend at Qatar's Ahmad bin Ali Stadium.

The Socceroos were placed second in Group D, finishing with six points from three games, level with group winners France but behind them on goal differential. On the first day of the game, they were beaten by France (4-1) but recovered to defeat Tunisia (1-0) and then Denmark (1-0). Australia hasn't missed a World Cup since Germany 2006 since their elimination by eventual champions Italy in the round of 16.

For Argentina, making it to the quarterfinals is the absolute minimum national expectation as they pursue their third World Cup crown, whereas it would be the stuff of dreams for Australia.

In his fifth and final attempt to win the World Cup and tie his legendary predecessor Diego Maradona in the No. 10 shirt, Messi is enjoying a harmony with the crowd unlike anything he has ever experienced. And he will be thrilled to have the opportunity to excite them even more against Australia.

Here's how to watch the all-important Argentina vs Australia Round of 16 World Cup match.
