Saudi Arabia and Mexico go head-to-head at the Lusail Stadium in the final round of Group C fixtures on Wednesday.
Both sides still stand a chance of securing a knockout-stage place as at least one of Poland and Argentina are set to drop points in the other group contest.
Saudi Arabia failed to secure their place in the knockout stages as they fell to a 2-0 loss against Poland last Saturday.
Prior to that, Hervé Renard’s side caused one of the biggest upsets in Qatar as they claimed a shock 2-1 victory over World Cup favorites Argentina in their group opener.
However, Saudi Arabia head into Wednesday with their fate in their own hands as victory will see them progress to the last 16 for the first time since 1994.
Meanwhile, Mexico’s World Cup dreams suffered a huge blow as they fell to a 2-0 defeat against South American rivals Argentina.
Prior to that, the Tricolor were a tad lucky in their group opener when they held on for a goalless draw against Poland.
Mexico, who are currently rooted to the bottom of Group C, are winless in their last three matches across all competitions and will be looking to end this poor run.
