Argentina will be keen to make the most of the momentum they have on their side when they face Australia in the round of 16 of the FIFA World Cup 2022. The Saturday night contest will see two sides that lost their tournament openers in contrasting fashion go head to head with each other. The superior experience and quality will be heavily in favour of the South American nation, making them the clear favourites in this fixture. However, the Australians have done well impressively to recover from the opening setback to end the group on a high, which should give them a lot of confidence in this clash at Ahmad bin Ali Stadium.

Placed in Group C, Argentina were expected to top the standings with relative ease but that was not how it transpired. Lionel Messi and Co suffered a shock defeat in their opener to Saudi Arabia. Keeping the disappointment aside, Lionel Scaloni’s side won the next two against Mexico and Poland to top the group. On the other hand, Australia were well beaten by France in their opener. They bounced back in style though, registering two hard-fought narrow victories over Tunisia and Denmark. They eventually finished second to France in Group D with six points.

Possible Lineups

There are not any noticeable fresh injury concerns both countries have to deal with ahead of this encounter. Nonetheless, this match might be coming a bit too soon for Argentina following the conclusion of their group-stage commitments. Hence, they could rotate the starting XI to give chances to a few fringe players in order to have fresh legs in place. Thereby, the likes of Nicolas Tagliafico and Lisandro Martinez could both start in this contest. On the other hand, Australia are unlikely to change a winning team, thus they can be expected to name the same starting XI.

Argentina possible line-up: E. Martinez, Molina, Romero, L Martinez, Tagliafico, Mac Allister, Fernandez, De Paul, Messi, Di Maria, Alvarez,

Australia possible line-up: Ryan, Karacic, Rowles, Souttar, Behich, Mooy, Leckie, Irvine, McGree, Goodwin, Duke
