Bet of the day
Argentina vs Saudi Arabia
Both teams to score - No ✅
Over 2.5 match goals ✅
We’re expecting a pretty routine performance from Argentina as they open their tournament against massive outsiders Saudi Arabia.
Argentina have won their last 5 games to nil and have scored at least 3 goals in all of their victories. You’d fancy the South American outfit to put a few past a very average-looking Saudi team.
Saudi Arabia themselves have been relatively consistent but this is just a completely different level of opponent to anything they would regularly face in qualification and competitive games.
With an abundance of attacking options and the Saudis not really scoring many goals themselves it’s hard to look past a routine win for the hosts with plenty of players hoping to get their tournament started well with a few goals
Mexico vs Poland
Over 3.5 cards ✅
A massive opening game for both sides as they will both fancy chances of progressing with Argentina but they must get the better of each other. This should result in a very competitive and important for both sides.
Australian referee Chris Beath averages 4.57 cards per game in his last 159 games and has shown 4 or more cards in 71% of those games.
Poland average 2.3 cards per game whilst Mexico 1.25. We’ve already seen plenty of cards in the opening game of this World Cup and you’d expect a similar theme here in this massive Group C game. The Double has been boosted to 11/2 here

Key stats & talking points
Tournament favourites Argentina and reigning World Champions France both kick off their tournaments with relatively straightforward looking games against Saudi Arabia and Australia respectively.
Lionel Messi could move closer to Diego Maradona’s record as Argentina’s all time record appearance holder at World Cups. He is currently on 19, and needs three to overtake his fellow great.
Meanwhile, Les Blues take to the field without Karim Benzema, who has been ruled out for the tournament, meaning that the often maligned Olivier Giroud could start up front alongside Kylian Mbappe. He needs just three more goals to overtake Thierry Henry as France’s all-time record goalscorer.
