It is crunch time in Group C at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, with all four teams in with a shot of reaching the last 16. Argentina have three points to their name, as do Saudi Arabia, Poland sit top of the group with 4 points whilst Mexico are languishing on just one. Argentina and Poland face off in what is likely to be battle for top spot, whilst Saudi Arabia and Mexico can put themselves in the mix with a win in their match.
Group D meanwhile is a little less volatile, with defending champions France having booked their place in the knockout rounds. Australia are hot on their heels, with 3 points from their opening 2 games, whilst Tunisia and Denmark have a point apiece. The final round of fixtures pits Tunisia with a tall order against France, leaving Australia and Denmark to battle it out for a place in the last 16.
Here is a rundown of the final round of fixtures in Group C and Group D at the 2022 FIFA World Cup:
Saudi Arabia vs Mexico
Saudi Arabia take on Mexico, with both sides needing points to have any chance of progressing to the last 16. Saudi Arabia beat Argentina in their opening game, securing a famous win but their loss to Poland has pegged them back somewhat. Mexico meanwhile are yet to win either of their opening two fixtures and they know anything less than a win here will see them heading home. That should spur Mexico into a winning performance here.
Betting tip: Mexico to win the match – (15/20)
Score Prediction – Mexico to win 2-0 – 13/2
Argentina vs Poland
Argentina take on Poland, with both sides in need of points for qualification. Argentina have won one and lost one of their opening two games and they will need a win here to be certain of progress to the last 16. Poland meanwhile have 4 points from 2 games and if they can keep Argentina out, then they will reach the knockout rounds. This should be a tight, tense encounter – with Argentina’s star quality likely to prove decisive.
Betting tip: Argentina to win the match (11/20)
Score Prediction – Argentina to win 2-1 – 6/1
France vs Tunisia
Defending champions France have a 100% record in the tournament so far and they can play a few fringe players against Tunisia, with qualification for the knockout stages assured. France dug deep to beat both Denmark and Australia, whilst Tunisia picked up a point against the Danes but came up short against Australia. Tunisia will be bang up for this one, but France should have too much quality in key areas.
Betting tip: France to win the match (1/2)
Score Prediction – France to win 2-0 – 11/2
Australia vs Denmark
Denmark’s hopes of reaching the last 16 hinge on their game against Australia. The Danes have just one point from their opening two games, and they take on an Australia side that dug deep to beat Tunisia last time out. This should be an attritional but watchable encounter, with Denmark most likely to have too much when it matters, propelling them into the knockout stages.
Betting tip: Denmark to win the match (11/20)
Score Prediction – Denmark to win 2-1 – 13/2
