World Cup 2022 predictions, Argentina-Saudi Arabia: Lautaro goals at 2.18

Debut of the Albiceleste in the Qatar 2022 World Cup, Tuesday at 11: the Bull can start strong immediately

Argentina’s race towards the World Cup starts from Saudi Arabia – kick-off on Tuesday at 11 am. The Albiceleste is among the main candidates for the final victory, also because there is the extra motivation of Lionel Messi’s last World Cup: now or never, for La Pulce. Observed special since the first game, it could not be otherwise.

Watch out for Lautaro

It’s easy to think of a Saudi Arabia focused on trying to limit Messi. The problem, for the formation coached by Hervé Renard, is that Argentina has so many phenomena, which can take advantage of the spaces that could be freed up. Among these there is obviously Lautaro Martinez: the Inter striker is a master at supporting, the partnership with Lukaku is a clear demonstration of this. He can hide and strike, with the Saudi defense focused on the PSG star.

Prediction: Lautaro scores

Lautaro knows what it means to score with an Argentina shirt. Toro’s goals in the national team are 21 in 40 games, an average of one goal every two games. He five out of 10 in Copa America, seven out of 14 in World Cup qualifiers. The Inter forward has found the net four times in his last five games for Argentina, the last one against Italy. In short, a goal by him against Saudi Arabia is possible. The odds for a goal by Toro, at any moment of the match, are 2.18 for StarCasinò Bet, 2.10 for Bet365, 1.90 for Sisal.


As far as the outcome of the match is concerned, the bookmakers are obviously betting on Argentina. The odds for the success of the Albiceleste are 1.19 for PlanetWin, 1.17 for NetBet, 1.16 for Sisal. While a victory by Saudi Arabia is even given at 23.00 by 888Sport, but it also reaches 14.00 by PlanetWin passing by 18.00 by Sisal. Less swing on the X sign: 8.00 for Betfair, 7.75 for Better, but also 7.35 for Novibet. Even with a -1 handicap (therefore assuming a victory with at least two goals difference) there are low odds for Albiceleste: 1.50 for Bet365 and Betfair, 1.45 for Sisal. Curiosity: Argentina has not beaten Saudi Arabia since 1992, from the final of the King Fahd Cup (quadrangular). It finished 3-1 with goals from Rodriguez, Caniggia and Simeone. Subsequently, the two national teams met in a friendly, in 2012: 0-0. Tuesday will be the first match at the World Cup.
