  • Kickoff: 12:00 CET
  • Venue: Lusail Iconic Stadium

World Cup 2022 favorites, Argentina, will kickstart their campaign against underdogs Saudi Arabia on the 4th Tuesday of November. Given that numerous favorites have already failed against the supposedly small soccer nations at the World Cup head coach Lionel Scaloni won’t take this fixture lightly. After the ultimately sovereign World Cup qualification, the team around superstar Lionel Messi, who will most likely play his last World Cup, seems to be ready to finally reach for the very big triumph again.

Saudi Arabia meanwhile were also impressive in their group at the world cup qualifiers finishing first with 23 points but their squad doesn't have any players who are among the most important performers in a top European league thus the reason we refer them as underdogs.

Argentina vs Saudi Arabia Betting Tips: Over 2.5 goals

It is the quality of the players in the team of the light blue and white, which clearly differs from the team of Saudi Arabia on every position. Thus, in our opinion, it is worth taking the risk of selecting a win for Argentina with at least a 2 goal lead when betting on Argentina vs Saudi Arabia.

As far as the Argentine forward line is concerned, Messi (86), Di Maria (25) and Lautaro Martinez (20) are the top scorers in the squad, but Citizens striker Julian Alvarez could also play a role at some point.

PSG striker Lionel Messi could be joined in the final third by Di Maria and Lautaro Martinez, while Tottenham Hotspur center back Cristian Romero and Benfica center back Nicolas Otamendi would strive for their 12th and 92nd appearances respectively in defence for Argentina.

Al-Ittihad and Saudi Arabia star Fahad Al-Muwallad, who has netted 17 goals in 70 international caps, would be a notable absence, with the midfielder set to miss out after testing positive for a banned substance.

In the absence of the 27-year-old, Salman Al-Faraj should continue to play a key role in the engine room, while Firas al-Buraikan could be chosen to lead the line.
