Argentina would add their first point of the group and would be one point away from Mexico for the last match. If Arabia beats Poland, the Albiceste will be equal to the Europeans and must hope to win the Polish team on the last date and that the Mexicans do not win.
The same would happen in the event of a tie and if Poland wins against Saudi Arabia they must beat them on the last date to equalize it and the goal difference will enter there.

If Mexico draws, they know that if they win the third match against Saudi Arabia, they will reach five points and qualify for the round of 16.
If he draws, he is left with three and it would depend on Poland drawing both games to define the qualifier.
The truth is that both teams know that they will be very complicated if they do not win. Mexico has more chances of making accounts, while the margin of error for the Argentines is practically nil. A final is coming up and it promises to be a great game that no one will be able to forget.
