Saudi Arabia is a huge longshot to win the 2018 World Cup at odds of +50000. Saudi Arabia is not thought of as a soccer power but they will be making their fifth World Cup appearance. Saudi Arabia finished second in qualifying in Group B behind Japan. The Saudis were able to advance due to a superior goal differential over Australia. Saudi Arabia made their first World Cup appearance in 1994 and they made it to the Round of 16 before losing to Sweden. They have not made it out of the group stage since.

Saudi Arabia 2018 World Cup Odds: +50000

Saudi Arabia is not a threat to win the 2016 World Cup, as they are listed at odds of +50000. They are probably not a threat to get out of their group and just getting a point or two would be considered a success for the 2018 Saudi Arabia team.

2018 World Cup Qualifying Results

Saudi Arabia finished second to Japan in Group B. The Saudis went 6-3 with one draw in qualifying, outscoring opponents by a combined 17-10. They will be making their first World Cup appearance since 2006. They had previously gone to four straight World Cups from 1994 to 2006 before missing out in 2010 and 2014. Saudi Arabia benefited in their qualifying finale in Group B as they played a Japan team that had already clinched the top spot. A 1-0 victory was enough to get Saudi Arabia through. “We won against Japan because we were patient. We weren’t at the required level in the first half and I brought on Fahad Al-Muwallad to up the tempo. We managed to grab a goal and secure our most important win. I’m really happy with what we’ve achieved.”  Former Saudi Arabia coach Bert van Marwijk said about the win over Japan.

Players to Watch

Taisir Al-Jassim and Yahya Al-Shehri played in all of the qualifying matches, while Salman Al-Faraj, Abdulmalek Al-Khaibri and Osama Hawsawi played in all but one.

The Coach

It is definitely unusual for one coach to lead a team to success in qualifying and another one to lead them in the World Cup but that will be the case for Saudi Arabia. Bert van Marwijk led Saudi Arabia to a World Cup berth but it will be Edgardo Bauza managing the team in Russia. Bauza was coaching the United Arab Emirates and he had some success, leading the team to a 1-1 draw in Thailand, a 2-1 win over Saudi Arabia and a 1-0 loss to Iraq. Bauz reached agreement with UAE to let him take over for Saudi Arabia in the World Cup. He will be the fourth South American coach to take over at Saudi Arabia, joining Jorge Solari, Carlos Alberto Parreira and Marcos Paqueta.

Saudi Arabia World Cup History

The Saudis made their first World Cup appearance in 1994 and they did well, making it out of the group stage. They made the World Cup in 1998, 2002 and 2006 but had no success. The club missed out in 2010 and in 2014. Saudi Arabia has played 13 previous World Cup matches and won two, lost nine and played to two draws. They have scored just 9 goals in 13 matches, for an average of 0.7 goals scored per game.

Saudi Arabia 2018 World Cup Predictions

Saudi Arabia is not going to win the World Cup and they are very unlikely to get out of the group stage. Just getting a point or two would be considered a success for this team at the 2018 World Cup.
