Matchday 1 will have probably one of the most one-sided games of the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Argentina will take on Saudi Arabia at Lusail Iconic Stadium seeking a good start. With Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria and Lautaro Martinez in attack, the Albiceleste coached by Lionel Scaloni begins its World Cup journey.

Argentina start as the notorious favorites to take the group C. At least in this specific match they must leave no doubts and begin with the right foot. In Russia 2018 they barely tied with a humble team like Iceland and everything went downhill after that, so they must be ready to go. The injuries have been a very evident issue on the squad, having to rule out multiple stable pieces. If they want to take the first place, they will have to win by a good margin to avoid potential problems.

For Saudi Arabia it would mean starting with the toughest opponent of the group. Four years ago they were in the opening game against the host nation Russia, so they are used to beginning with tough games. Although that time they lost 5-0, their AFC qualification was great. They finished first in their group, having just one loss in 10 appearances.
