Saudi Arabia and Mexico face off Wednesday with one chance at making the last-16 at Qatar 2022.

The teams sit third and fourth, respectively, in Group C, although the Saudis will definitely move on to the knockout round with a victory. This comes after Saudi Arabia stunned Argentina 2-1 on the first match day and then fell 2-0 to Poland immediately thereafter, putting them on three points with a -1 goal difference.

As for Mexico, anything less than a win on Wednesday will not suffice — and even a victory may not be enough. The Mexicans are still waiting for their first goal of the tournament after a scoreless draw with Poland and a 2-0 loss to the Argentines, putting them at just a single point and -2 goal difference. With the numerous permutations at play, Mexico could be eliminated even with a victory in this match.

As such, all the Mexicans can do is play for a win and hope for a helpful result in the other game.
