Argentina vs Saudi Arabia 22.11.2022
Argentina’s push for their first World Cup title since 1986 will begin with their first Group game against Saudi Arabia. The La Albiceleste head into this tournament looking to honor the late legend Diego Maradona by delivering the coveted trophy which has eluded them for 36 years. Here, their confidence will be bolstered by a remarkable run of form which has seen them remain unbeaten since a 2-0 loss to Brazil back in July 2019. Hence, they will be banking on this form to get their campaign off to a bright start.
Meanwhile, the Saudis are making their 4th appearance at the showpiece and would certainly be seen as underdogs in a group that has Messi’s Argentina, Mexico and Poland. Their motivation will stem from the drive to replicate or better their 1994 performance which earned them a last-16 place. In this tie, they face a huge hurdle as they look to end Argentina’s record-breaking unbeaten streak.
Considering Argentina’s form, all-around quality, and overall experience as 2 time World Champions, we expect a dominant display from the South Americans. Hence, we are backing them to score at least 3 goals here.
