What Can Saudi Arabia Accomplish at the World Cup?

Saudi Arabia was knocked out at the group stage in their last appearance at the World Cup but will harbour ambitions of a deeper run at Qatar 2022. They were impressive in their FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifiers by finishing top of their group in the AFC, placing ahead of Japan and Australia.

Saudi Arabia should take some confidence from that, but looking at the Qatar 2022 dates, there are challenges aplenty for them in Group C. It could be a battle in the final match where they will aim to reach the knockout phase for the first time since 1994.

Name Position Matches Goals
Saleh Al-Shehri Forward 13 7
Salem Al-Dawsari Midfielder 13 7
Salman Al-Faraj Midfielder 14 4
Fahad Al Muwallad Midfielder 13 4

Unfortunately, Saudi Arabia’s squad isn’t comprised of players from the world of top-tier football. The entirety of their ranks is used to playing domestically. However, players such as Saleh Al-Shehri and Salem Al-Dawsari did prove their quality during the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification stages. They’re not going to blow their opponents away in the final third and will be reliant on a team work ethic to will their way to the round of 16.

Manager Herve Renard will be crucial for his side’s hopes. He proved that in qualifying along with his past experience with Morocco at the World Cup and steering Zambia and Ivory Coast to Africa Cup of Nations glory.

What Will Happen With Ageing Mexico?

Mexico finished second behind Canada in their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification but still mustered an impressive 28 points from their 14 matches. Their dominance of CONCACAF has been shaken by defeats to the United States in the Nations League and Gold Cup finals, perhaps highlighting issues in the quality and depth of the talent coming through the ranks.

El Tri does have an ageing team with few standout talents in the ranks outside of the old faithful players like Andres Guardado, Raul Jimenez and Hector Moreno. It could be their final bow in a world tournament, placing the emphasis on at least pushing out of the Qatar World Cup 2022 group stage.

Raul Jimenez Forward 9 3
Henry Martin Forward 7 2

Hector Herrera Midfielder 11 1

Outside of Jimenez and Hirving Lozano, there is not a great deal of attacking talent to work with. Mexico is going through a period of transition and is waiting for the next generation of talent to arrive.

Gerardo Martino will be hopeful that his team have enough to see off teams of the ilk of Saudi Arabia and Poland in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group C to advance to the knockout stage for the eighth tournament in a row, but there’s no hiding the challenge ahead of El Tri.

Betting tips and odds on Saudi Arabia vs Mexico in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group C

Saudi Arabia vs Mexico promises to be a tight affair in FIFA World Cup 2022 Group C as neither side is blessed with a potent strike force. Mexico does have the experience and proven nous on the World Cup stage to perform and edge out results. This game is going to be another case of El Tri working their way towards a positive result.

Our recommendation would be to back them to win the contest in the full-time result market and a score of 1-0 in the correct score market. Lozano won the game for Mexico against Germany in 2018, so he could be an interesting player to target for the first goalscorer market. In terms of player bookings, Abdulellah Al-Malki was carded four times during qualifying for Saudi Arabia, so it’s also worth looking out for his odds for a yellow card.
