World Cup 2022: Saudi Arabia - Mexico 0-0 (0-0)

Lineup Saudi Arabia: Al-Owais - Tambakti, Al-Amri, Al-Bulaihi (37th Sharahili) - Al-Ghanam, Al-Hassan, Kanno, Abdulhamid - Al-Buraikan, Al-Shehri, Salem

Lineup Mexico: G. Ochoa - J. Sanchez, C. Montes, H. Moreno, J. Gallardo - E. Alvarez, L. Chavez - H. Lozano, O. Pineda, A. Vega - H. Martin

Gates:

Break!

Shortly after the final Saudi offensive, Englishman Michael Oliver asked for tea.

The first half can be divided into different phases.

At first, the Mexicans also set the tone in a playful way, until the pace on the field became increasingly rough and the flow of the Mexican game was interrupted as a result.

The Central Americans then paid tribute to their quick pace and Saudi Arabia had chances just before the break.

By the way, both teams would have been eliminated from the tournament at the moment, as the parallel game between Argentina and Poland is also 0-0.

45 minutes + 6:

Saudi Arabia again!

Al-Hassan receives a sharp cross to the head, but is unable to press the ball decisively and misses the goal.

45 minutes + 4:

And suddenly Al-Buraikan is alone on the way to Ochoa.

But the Mexican defense can just intervene with a robust boarding.

The Saudi goes down and demands a free-kick, but Michael Oliver's whistle is silent.

Generous decision of the referees.

45th minute + 1:

Nothing new for the spectators of this World Cup: There are six minutes of added time.

45 minutes:

Martin puts the ball in the middle of the penalty area on the left onto Vega, who should actually have a clear shot.

But the striker really wants to do it with his right foot and his shot is eventually blocked.

42 minutes:

The flow of the game is increasingly interrupted due to the numerous fouls and the fans are now seeing a lot of patchwork here.

40 minutes:

Mexico takes a free kick 25 yards from goal.

But Chavez tries the crowbar and the ball bounces off a Saudi leg out of harm's way.

Heated game between Saudi Arabia and Mexico

36 minutes:

Al-Bulaihi is sitting on the floor again and needs treatment.

This time, a nudge from Lozano seems to have been the trigger.

The Saudi defender has to be replaced with Sharahili coming on.

Bitter for the green falcons, who now have to do without their probably strongest defender.

34 minutes:

Next foul by Saudi Arabia, and again there is yellow.

Al-Hassan rudely cleans up Chavez in midfield.

An action that is representative of this phase of the game, in which things are becoming increasingly heated.

28 minutes:

Now there is also the first yellow card for Saudi Arabia.

Al-Shehri elbowed a little too high in a duel and hit his opponent.

27 minutes:

What a chance for Pineda!

Lozano pulls a cross from the right sharply towards the far post, where Pineda runs in, but only hits the defender in front of him with a header.

Al-Owais would have been defeated.

25th Minute:

Another Mexican degree, which now clearly take control.

Pineda's low shot poses no problem for the Saudi keeper. A defender's foot probably got in the way, which softened the shot a bit.

23 minutes:

After Saudi Arabia was unable to clear the ball out of the danger zone for a long time, Chavez tried a volley from a distance.

No problem for Al-Owais, who can record the conclusion that is too central.

Saudi Arabia vs. Mexico: Attractive exchange of blows

20 minutes:

The spectators see a very attractive game here, in which both teams do not waste time with scanning and exuberant build-up play.

Mexico have had the better chances so far, but Saudi Arabia also seem capable of scoring at any time.

16 minutes:

First yellow card in what has been a very fair game so far.

Alvarez is cautioned for a foul on Tambakti in the attacking half.

13 minutes:

Kanno takes the free kick from a central position, but then aims a few meters too high.

12 minutes:

Abdulhamid switches on the turbo in midfield and drives the ball to the front of the Mexicans' penalty area.

He can only be stopped with a foul shortly before the sixteen.

free kick.

Will Saudi Arabia have the first chance to score?

7th minute:

It's getting dangerous again in the Saudi penalty area!

Gallardo swings a sharp cross in front of goal and Al-Owais remains rooted to the spot, although if he comes across the ball he could easily pick it up.

At the last moment, the keeper reacts and clears something unorthodox forward.

3 minutes:

Mexico continues to accelerate and almost takes the lead.

A fine pass reaches Alexis Vega, who then fails to get the ball past Al-Owais, who rushes out.

2 minutes:

The Mexicans' first approach to the goal.

The goal from a good 20 meters goes a good distance to the right of the housing.

The ball rolls!

Update, 7:59 p.m .:

The anthem is sung, the teams take their positions and now expect referee Michael Oliver from England to release the game.

The countdown is on, only five minutes until kick-off.

The players are ready for the national anthems.

Update, 7.45 p.m .:

Another quarter of an hour until the game between Saudi Arabia and Mexico is kicked off.

Although the parallel game between Argentina and Poland can probably come up with well-known players, the game of the two underdogs has at least as much appeal.

Should one of the two teams qualify for the round of 16 today, you can certainly follow the really big football emotions here.

Update, 7.30 p.m .:

Not only in Mexico, but also on the other side in Saudi Arabia, they had to deal with injuries in the run-up to the game.

While midfielder Mohamed Kanno got fit in time for the game, defender Mohammed Al-Buraik, who is also injured, can only come from the substitutes' bench.

In addition, Martino again relies on a clear striker this time with Martin.

Update, 7:03 p.m .:

The lineups are here!

Since both teams are almost certainly dependent on a win, the offensive line-up of the two teams is no wonder.

Both coaches are looking for their salvation in attack, which will certainly improve the attractiveness of the game.

Update from November 30, 6:52 p.m .:

The lineups of the two teams should be published in a few minutes.

At 8 p.m., the whistle will kick off for the decisive last matchday of Group C. All four teams still have the opportunity to advance to the round of 16, so the games will be full of tension.

Saudi Arabia vs Mexico: Who will reach the World Cup Round of 16?

First report from November 30th:

Lusail – Everything is still open on the last matchday of Group C and the two underdogs Saudi Arabia and Mexico can still have legitimate hopes of progressing to the knockout round of the 2022 World Cup.

This is also due to the fact that both were able to surprise in the first group game against the favorites.

Saudi Arabia sensationally defeated Argentina 2-1, while Mexico drew 0-0 from Poland led by Robert Lewandowski.

Now the direct duel between the two teams is imminent, which, to the astonishment of many observers, both kept their chances for the round of 16.

Saudi Arabia, with three points, has a better starting position than the Mexicans, who are at the bottom of the group with one point going into the last matchday.

Saudi Arabia vs Mexico live today: arithmetic games before the match

If Saudi Arabia wins, they are sure to be in the round of 16.

So short, so simple.

But for all other possibilities there are various eventualities that could be enough for one of the two teams.

A draw is enough for the Saudis, if in the parallel game (here in the live ticker) Poland wins by two goals (or more) against Argentina.

With the same goal difference with the gauchos, Saudi Arabia would benefit from the win from the first group game.

You can read here which automatisms apply in the event of a tie.

For the Mexicans, on the other hand, even a win may not be enough.

The Central Americans are through with their own win if Poland wins no matter how high.

If Argentina wins, they need to have a better goal difference than Poland when the game is over.

On the other hand, should there be a draw between the Polish national team and the Gauchos, Mexico must win by at least four goals. 

Saudi Arabia vs Mexico live today: will Ochoa's front men break the knot?

Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa has achieved cult status.

Not only is his hair responsible for this, but also his notorious World Cup performances.

It's almost as if the keeper would emerge from oblivion at every World Cup - it's his fifth - and deliver terrific performances out of nowhere.

He also made headlines in this tournament when he saved Robert Lewandowski's penalty in the first group game.

On the other hand, it looks completely different in the offensive of the Mexicans.

So far, coach Gerardo Martino's team have not scored a goal, even though Hirving Lozano from SSC Napoli would be a proven goalscorer in the squad.

So the eyes of the Mexican fans will probably be more on the offensive than on Guillermo Ochoa this time.
