Saudi Arabia Double Chance (Win or Draw)

Reason for tip

Saudi Arabia are one step away from a historical group stage qualification in the World Cup. They didn’t disgrace themselves against Poland and can hold their own against this out-of-sorts Mexico side.

Draw 0-0

Reason for tip

Mexico haven’t scored in any of their last four World Cup tournament games whilst Saudi Arabia didn’t manage to find the net despite making 16 goal attempts last time out, so we’re going for the bore draw.

Saudi Arabia vs Mexico Predictions

  • Mexico failed to score in each of their last four World Cup tournament games.
  • Saudi Arabia has 16 goal attempts without scoring last time out.
  • Each of Mexico’s last three World Cup tournament games produced under 2.5 goals.
  • Saudi Arabia avoided defeat in eight of their last ten matches.

It all comes down to this

Despite falling to a 2-0 defeat last time out, Saudi Arabia would have snapped your hand off to still be in with a chance of qualifying in their final group game. Only a win will be enough to guarantee a historic progression to the World Cup knockout stage, whilst a draw would be enough if Poland defeat Argentina in the other game.

On the other hand, Mexico find themselves on the precipice of elimination after progressing beyond the group stage in each of the last seven tournaments. only a victory would keep them in contention to qualify, but there are more factors at play than just a Mexican success.

Saudi Arabia can break tradition

Although Saudi Arabia are winless in all of the prior meetings between these nations (D1, L4), their 19 shots at goal in just two games so far indicates that they don’t fear any side.

The come from behind win over Argentina has arguably gone down as the greatest shock in World Cup history as Saudi Arabia won at 22/1 odds, with the Royal Family announcing a national holiday to celebrate that victory in the aftermath!

The defeat to Poland threw a spanner in the works, but not many would have predicted that Qatar’s neighbours would still be in with a shout at this late stage, so a positive result against the blunt Mexico perhaps wouldn’t surprise punters.

Mexico’s can wave goodbye to the World Cup

Mexico have long been a guaranteed pick to make it to the knockout phase, yet anything short of victory here will see them eliminated. They’ll need to score a goal to do that, something they’ve not done in any of their last four World Cup tournament games!

Often looking flat in attack, Mexico don’t appear to be great value for the win at their odds-on price here, so we’re going against them with a Saudi Arabia double chance selection.

Given both Mexico’s blunt strike force and Saudi Arabia’s profligacy in front of goal considering the number of shots taken, we’re going for a hard-fought 0-0 draw in the correct score market to round out our selections.
