Argentina vs. Saudi Arabia Prediction

Prediction, Odds & Betting tips for Argentina vs. Saudi Arabia | Group Stage, World Cup Qatar 2022

  • Where: Lusail Iconic Stadium, Lusail, Qatar
  • When: Sunday, November 22, 1 pm local time

Argentina meets Saudi Arabia in their first game at the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Even though there is a significant difference in quality, the Argentinians can’t underestimate the Arabian team, because we often saw in the past massive sensations, especially in the early stages of the tournament. We assume that Saudi Arabia is going to have big support from the stands, but on the other hand, Argentina’s players got used to playing in a fiery atmosphere.

Argentina vs. Saudi Arabia Preview

Argentina

Gauchos are without a loss for the last three years, and 35 games, meaning that this team comes to Qatar as one of the top favorites to win the trophy. This is probably Messi’s last big international tournament, and one of the greatest ever would like to put his hands on that title. 

After last year’s Copa America win in Brazil, Argentina became the main topic in the football community because of their mature and rational game, and excellent balance on the field. 

We haven’t seen them this confident in the Messi era, and apparently, now, this crew has reached its ceiling at the best possible time, some would say. Argentina has four wins in a row before the World Cup, not allowing a single goal while scoring 14 on the other end.

Saudi Arabia

The Saudis won the top of Group B of the Asian World Cup qualifiers, winning seven of their ten games, posting two draws and one loss. Herve Renard’s crew secured the ticket for Qatar pretty early, and didn’t have any problems while doing so. 

In the past six games, they won only two and recorded four draws, with all of these contests ending with under 2.5 goals. Overall only one of the last 20 games saw three or more hits, and a vast majority of those contests were with just one or no goals at all. 

From all this, we can see that this team is limited in creativity and scoring, and that’s why Saudi Arabia defends first, stalking for a chance to strike from a counter-attack.
