Argentina and Saudi Arabia will meet at the Lusail Stadium in a World Cup Qatar 2022 group stage match. Here are the confirmed lineups of both teams for the match.
It will be the first match for the favorites to win Group C and one of the main contenders to win this year’s World Cup. Argentina has seen a lot of growth after the very bad image they left in Russia 2018. And now, of course, it’s time for them to show how much they’ve grown in the last 4 years.
Saudi Arabia know they are the underdogs to progress to the last 16, with fixtures as tough as the one they face in this game, as well as Poland and Mexico. However, they are looking for a big surprise in this group stage. To do this, of course, they need to play at a high level in front of the main candidates to win the group.
Argentina ‘s probable lineup
The Argentine team would have the same 11 that beat UAE last week, with Mac Allister starting despite some doubt as to whether he will be replaced.
Argentina ‘s possible lineup: E. Martinez; Molina, Romero, Otamendi, Nicolás Tagliafico ; De Paul, Paredes, Papu Gomez ; Messi, L. Martinez, Di Maria
Saudi Arabia ‘s probable lineup
For this game, the Saudi team would set up a line of four defenders in the back, with a very crowded midfield that will try to supply Al-Buraikan, the only forward.
Saudi Arabia ‘s possible lineup: Al-Owais; Al-Burayk, Al-Amri, Al-Bulahyi, Al-Shahrani; Kanno, Al-Malki; Al-Shehri, Al-Faraj, Al-Daswari; Al-Buraikan
