Argentina kick off their Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign with a Group C encounter against Saudi Arabia on Tuesday afternoon.

Argentina are considered favorites to win the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup and they face UAE in their final friendly match ahead of the tournament.

The hosts failed to qualify for the FIFA World Cup, and after this game, they will play another friendly against Kazakhstan on Saturday.

Argentina are preparing for their World Cup opener against Saudi Arabia on November 22, while they will also take on Mexico and Poland in the group stage.

Argentina have not actually lost a single match since Brazil beat them 2-0 in July 2019, giving them enough confidence to end their 34-year wait for the trophy.

Lionel Messi’s Argentina have won the tournament on two previous occasions, in 1978 and 1986 but this could be the year that changes.

Argentina were runners-up at the 2014 edition of the tournament before disappointingly going out in the round of 16 four years ago in Russia.

Argentina are strong favourites and are ranked third in the FIFA rankings while UAE are miles behind them in 70th place.

Will this be another routine win for the Blue and Whites to extend their unbeaten run?
