Argentina will open their first World Cup match against Saudi Arabia tomorrow at the Lusail Stadium by 11:00 WAT.

The Albicelestes are expected to win this one out, as they are the clear favourites in the game.

They will be competing in their 18th World Cup, after finishing second to Brazil in the CONMEBOL table.

Heading into tomorrow’s game, Lionel Scaloni will be expected to name a strong squad, as they would want to start on a high note in the competition.

In the midfield, the Argentine coach is expected to name Atletico Madrid’s Rodrigo de Paul; Juventus’ Leandro Paredes; and Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister.

Lionel Messi could be deployed in the central attacking midfield role supporting a front two of Juventus’ Angel Di Maria and Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez.
