Saudi Arabia vs Mexico Prediction & Pick

This matchup is going to make a huge difference in the final standings of Group C. A win would clinch a spot in the Round of 16 for Saudi Arabia, while a draw would leave things up in the air and a loss all but knocks them out of contention. For Mexico, a win is needed to keep hopes of advancing alive.

Injuries leave these squads vulnerable in the midfield, so look for the head coaches to focus on offense rather than defense on Wednesday. That normally gives the edge to the superior team, which would be Mexico, but Saudi Arabia has proven that its scoring abilities should not be underestimated.

Final Score Prediction: Saudi Arabia: 2 | Mexico: 2

Saudi Arabia vs Mexico Best Bet

Saudi Arabia has gathered early scoring opportunities in each of its two matches, so seeing them get out to a lead wouldn't be surprising. That would force Mexico to keep racking up shots on goal in order to keep the game within reach. Neither one of these teams can afford to switch it up and play cautiously when so much is on the line. That's why I see a classic World Cup shootout breaking out.
