Argentina-Saudi Arabia, third group, stadium: "Lusail National Stadium", 12:00 CET, referee: Slavko Vincic.
Argentina: Aiming to win and score a lot of goals
One of the big favorites is thrown into the battle of the World Cup and the opponent looks ideal to start with enough goals to be in the first place of the group from the beginning. In terms of competition, Lionel Messi will start as usual in the starting line-up, while the coach of the team, Lionel Scaloni, has taken only those who he considers to be absolutely ready.
Saudi Arabia: A difficult start
Saudi Arabia is the absolute outsider of the group and against Argentina they do not face the most difficult opponents in the organized with a positive result against Albizalida looking like a miserable one. In the team's competitive news, defender Al Tabakti is still not in his best condition, while Saud Abdulhamid is probably on the right end of the defense.

Tunisia: To prove that he did not come for the experience

France-Australia, fourth group, stadium: "Al Yanoub", referee: Victor Gomes, 21:00, RIK
France: To beat the absences
World champions France start their journey to retain the title and against Australia they are the big favourites. However, in terms of competition, Didier Deschamps has to face several problems, such as the absence of Kante, Pogba, that of Nkunku and of course the most important absence of Karim Benzema who would kick out the World Cup.
Australia: They are underdogs
The draw has brought her up against the World champions in the first match and that in itself is something that increases the level of difficulty as a result of which there are not enough expectations for the match against France. In terms of competition, there are some problems such as Hrustic, who will probably be absent from today's match.
