Argentina will look to maintain their impressive form when kick-starting their World Cup campaign against Saudi Arabia on Tuesday. The highly-anticipated contest at Lusail Stadium will be heavily in favour of the South American nation and it is easy to see why! Argentina are on an incredible 36-game unbeaten run across all competitions. They are scoring goals for fun and are keeping it rock solid at the back. There will not be a better chance for Lionel Messi and Co. to lift the World Cup than the current one.

The two-time champions are in scintillating form of late. They are on a five-game winning streak in all competitions and did not concede a single goal in any of them while scoring a staggering 19 goals in the process. In their last match, Argentina trounced the United Arab Emirates 5-0. On the other hand, Saudi Arabia are winless in the two games they played in November. After playing out a draw with Panama, they lost 1-0 to Croatia. It goes without saying that Saudi Arabia face an extremely difficult task of getting anything out of the opening game against Argentina on Tuesday.

Possible Lineups

Having already clinched the Copa America last year, Argentina will be eager to add to it by winning the coveted World Cup in Qatar. To do that the two-time world champions will look for a fast start in Group C. With no noticeable injury concerns, they could name a strong lineup on Tuesday. With Messi leading the line, it will be interesting to see who partners him in the attacking third. In the centre-back positions, it will be a direct battle between Cristian Romero, Nicolas Otamendi and Lisandro Martinez. Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia have a couple of injury concerns in the form of Riyadh Sharahili and Hassan Tambakti. It is unclear if the duo can be fit for the opener.
