Argentina have a chance to make a fast start to the 2022 World Cup when they face Saudi Arabia on Tuesday. Keeping the South American nation’s impressive recent run in mind, it will be difficult to expect Saudi Arabia to get anything out of the match at Lusail Stadium. The defending Copa America champions are in the middle of a scintillating 36-game unbeaten run across all competitions. They are one of the favourites to go all the way in Qatar and to do that Argentina will look to start the competition with three points on Tuesday.

It is not only their unbeaten streak that has been impressive but Argentina have hit the top form at the right time. They are heading into the World Cup on the back of beating the United Arab Emirates 5-0. To put it into perspective, Argentina are on a five-match winning run in all competitions and did not concede a single goal in any of them. However, they scored an astonishing 19 goals in that period. On the other hand, Saudi Arabia’s recent form is not encouraging. They could only manage a draw and a defeat in the two matches they played in November.
