Saudi Arabia Team News

Saudi Arabia made a great start of the World Cup by beating Argentina, the main favorite of Group C, 2-1 in the first round to the surprise of many football fans. However, in the next round, Harvey Renard’s team missed the opportunity to advance to the next round of the competition in the match against Poland, given the development of events in the group at that moment.

With Poland leading 1-0, Salem Al-Dawsari missed a penalty and thus missed a great chance to equalize for his team at the very end of the first half. Then there was a penalty in the rest of the match where the phenomenal Robert Lewandowski set up in the 82nd minute final score Poland 2 – Saudi Arabia 0. They are currently in third place in Group C with three points, so a win against Mexico would put them in the knockout stage, a result they have been waiting for almost thirty years.

Mexico Team News

On the other hand, we cannot say that Gerardo Martin’s team was disappointed with their performance in the previous two matches of the tournament. Although they failed to achieve a triumph after two rounds and are still waiting for the first goal at the World Cup in Qatar.

In the first round they shared a point with Poland after a goalless draw, while in the second match they were defeated by Argentina with goals from Lionel Messi in the 64th minute and Enzo Fernandez in the 87th minute, although they were the better team on the field for most of the game.

The last third of the match proved to be fatal for the Mexicans. So they enter the next match against Saudi Arabia as the last-place team in Group C. Only a triumph with a favorable result in the second match in the group (Poland’s victory against Argentina) can bring them a passage to the knock-out phase, where they managed to pass the previous World Championships since 1994, and then shortly afterwards were eliminated from the competition at the next step.


Mexico has achieved 4 victories against Saudi Arabia in the previous matches, while one match ended in a draw. The last match between these two teams was back in 1999. Mexico was convincing in that match and won 5-1.

Expected lineups

Saudi Arabia (4-1-4-1): Mohammed Al-Owais – Mohammed Al-Burayk – Ali Al-Boleahi – Abdulelah Al-Amri – Saud Abdulhamid – Nasser Al-Dawsari – Salem Al-Dawsari – Mohamed Kanno – Sami Al – Najei – Firas Al-Buraikan – Saleh Al-Shehri

Mexico (3-5-2): Guillermo Ochoa – Hector Moreno – Cesar Montes – Nestor Araujo – Jesus Gallardo – Kevin Alvarez – Erick Gutierrez – Hector Herrera – Edson Alvarez – Hirving Lozano – Raul Jimenez

Saudi Arabia vs. Mexico Prediction

In this match, both teams must win if they want to advance to the next stage of the competition. It is ungrateful to predict who will emerge as the winner from this duel, so it seems to us that a better option is the goal game.

We have decided on a combination so that the total number of goals in the match will be above 2.5. Saudi Arabia showed in the match against Argentina that they can shake the opponent’s net even against the big favorite, and on the other hand, we believe that it is time for Mexico to use its good games in the tournament, we expect a meeting with more goals.
