Qatar World Cup: what Argentina needs to qualify for the round of 16
Argentina must add points to think about the next World Cup match. Nevertheless, a possible draw will force him to look askance what will happen in the match between Mexico and Saudi Arabia, which has 3 points after cutting the undefeated team from Albiceleste on the first date.
Lionel Scaloni’s team has three possible scenarios in case of losing, drawing or winning against Robert Lewandoski’s team:
- Defeat: in case of losing, Argentina will finish the group stage with 3 points and would be left without the World Cup. Second place would be defined between Mexico and Saudi Arabia.
- Tie: in case of a tie with Poland, a victory for Mexico by up to two goals difference over Arabia, who is last with one point, or a draw between the two teams will leave Argentina on the verge of qualifying: the Mexicans will play eighth only if they win by 4 goals difference or more.
- Victory: if Argentina wins against Poland, the albiceleste team will have high chances of qualifying first in their group. However, it depends on Saudi Arabia, which has a goal difference of -1, scoring two goals less than the Argentine team.
