Wednesday’s game between Saudi Arabia vs. Mexico at the Lusail Stadium is the final one in Group C.
As at least one of Poland and Argentina is predicted to lose in the other group match, both sides still have a chance to go to the knockout phase.
Saudi Arabia vs. Mexico Preview
Last weekend’s 2-0 defeat of Saudi Arabia against Poland stopped them from gaining a place in the knockout stages.
Hervé Renard’s team scored a 2-1 victory over tournament favorites Argentina in their group stage opening to pull off one of the biggest upsets in Qatar.
But Saudi Arabia enters Wednesday knowing that their fate is in their own hands because a victory will put them for the first time since 1994 into the round of 16.
Similar to Argentina, Mexico’s chances of competing in the World Cup were seriously damaged when they were trounced 2-0 by their South American opponents.
Before that, the Tricolor held on to earn their first-ever group point against Poland at home.
Mexico is currently rooted at the bottom of Group C after losing its previous three games across all competitions. They are going to try to end this losing skid.
Saudi Arabia vs. Mexico Head-To-Head
Mexico has won four of the previous five meetings, dominating this contest throughout its history. Saudi Arabia still hasn’t defeated the South Americans, even though the awards have been split once.
Mexico’s previous three games have seen them lose twice and draw once since a 4-0 training win over Iran on November 9. In their last four games, Saudi Arabia has only been able to win once while losing twice and drawing once.
Saudi Arabia vs. Mexico Prediction
We anticipate a fascinating contest as Saudi Arabia and Mexico compete for all three points with probable advancement. Mexico possesses the talent and forcefulness required to triumph, and we are confident that they will beat Renard’s team, although by a solitary goal.
