Argentina vs Australia: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time & where to watch
Argentina are set to take on Australia in a round-of-16 clash at the 2022 World Cup on Saturday at the Ahmad bin Ali Stadium.
After a setback in the campaign opener, Lionel Messi's Argentina roared back with two successive wins against Mexico and Poland respectively. Julian Alvarez and Enzo Fernandez have been the standout performers for Lionel Scaloni and if the Albiceleste play to their potential they should dispatch Australia without any trouble.
Meanwhile, Graham Arnolds's men are having a dream run in Qatar as they punched above their weight and beat Denmark in their last outing to secure a knockout berth.
Mathew Leckie found the net and there were seismic reactions in Melbourne even in the wee hours of the morning. They are a bunch of pragmatic players and there is little doubt that they would stick to the basics against one of the title contenders.
