Argentina and Australia face each other this Saturday, December 3, for the knockout stages of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar. The match will be played from 2:00 p.m. The ‘albicelestes’ are broad candidates to access the next stage, although the oceanic do not want to stay in this instance. The match will be played at Ahmad bin Ali Stadium. As expected, there are many fans who wait for this match to play a bet on the forecast that comes next.
The Argentina squad reached this instance after finishing in first place in Group C beating teams such as Poland, Mexico, and Saudi Arabia. On the Australian side, they finished second in Group D against Denmark and Tunisia. The first in that series was France.
The ‘Albiceleste’, technically managed by Lionel Scaloni, had a debut to forget: it fell 2-1 to Saudi Arabia and its chances of advancing in the tournament were complicated. However, after getting a positive result against Mexico (2-0), the South Americans arrived with the morale at the top to face Poland.
For its part, Australia started the event in the same way as the ‘Albiceleste’. In his debut, he was defeated 4-1 against France and everything indicated that his qualification was impossible. Despite this, Graham Arnold’s team reacted in time and got two important wins against Tunisia (1-0) and Denmark (1-0), which helped them get the ticket to the knockout stages.
Argentina and Australia met seven times throughout history. Argentina won five matches, one ending in a draw and the other was an Australian triumph. Australia won a 4-1 friendly in Sydney in 1988, the first match between the two teams.
The draw was also 1-1 in Australia for the first leg of the 1994 World Cup playoffs in the United States, played at the end of 1993. Argentina was the one that won that repechage, winning 1-0 in Buenos Aires in the second leg.
