They will also be denied the services of midfielder Abdulelah Al-Malki after he picked up a second yellow card last time out. Ali Al-Hassan could replace him.

Mexico predicted starting 11

(4-3-3, right to left): 13. Ochoa (GK) — 2. Nestor Araujo, 3. Montes, 15. Moreno, 23. Gallardo — 16. Herrera, 17. Pineda, 24. Chavez — 22. Lozano, 11. Funes Mori, 10. Vega

  • Injured: None
  • Suspended: None

Despite Martino’s protestations, there are suggestions that Rogelio Funes Mori could get his first start up top ahead of Henry Martin and an out-of-sorts Raul Jimenez.

A return to a 4-3-3 shape is also likely, while Orbelin Pineda may well come into the midfield at the expense of Andres Guardado.

Saudi Arabia vs Mexico World Cup 2022 Prediction

While both teams have a chance to reach the next stage, it is likely that they will need to win to achieve this. Although Saudi Arabia could go through with a draw, they would have to hope for the other game to go their way too. In any case, let’s take a look at some of our top betting pick for this game now:

Double Chance: Saudi Arabia to Win or a Draw

If we had to offer a prediction for this match before the tournament started, we would go with Mexico without stopping to think about it. However, Saudi Arabia showed a lot more than Mexico so far, including that impressive win over Argentina. Yes, Saudi Arabia did lose to Poland in the second round, but they were not inferior in that game either. Meanwhile, Mexico failed to score a goal in the first two rounds and while they managed to draw with Poland, they really didn’t impress us at all. So, we can definitely see Saudi Arabia avoiding a loss in this game.

Place the bet >>

Over 2.5 Total Goals

We only saw two goals in Mexico’s two games in the group so far and both of them were scored against them, in their duel against Argentina. Despite that, we can see this match going over 2.5 total goals. After all, Saudi Arabia averaged 2.50 goals per game in their two games in Qatar and they’ve been playing brave, free-flowing football. If they approach this game the same way, we can see the match ending with three or more goals being scored.
