The Lusail Iconic Stadium will be prepared for the match between Saudi Arabia and Mexico on Wednesday.
At the weekend, Saudi Arabia was dealt a devastating blow and missed the opportunity to earn a storied knockout spot. They had highs and lows throughout the course of the weekend, with the high being their victory against tournament favorites Argentina and the low being a 2-0 setback to Poland. Saudi Arabia is still in charge of its own destiny.
In the last group match, Mexico was defeated 0-2 by two goals by Argentina(N). If Poland and Argentina tie, Mexico must overcome Saudi Arabia by four goals or more to advance; if Argentina defeats their European opponents owing to their substantially worse goal differential, Mexico requires a five-goal swing in their favor.
The richness of Gold Cup experience and superior head-to-head record against this foe will be used by the Mexicans to their advantage. They have considerably more exposure to and expertise with professional football in comparison. Wednesday should be a goal-fest as things stand.
Pick: Over 2.5/3 Goals
