The Mexican National Team needs a victory against Saudi Arabia and wait for the result between Argentina and Poland, but what happens if they tie?
Mexico will collide before Saudi Arabia with the aim of qualifying for the round of 16 phase of the World Cup Qatar 2022. Mathematically, the team still has a chance to qualify for the next round if they beat the Asian team.

If the parity persists, the highest number of goals scored in group matches played between the teams in question will be taken into account.
For that moment, in the event that equality remains between two or more teams, the highest number of points obtained for sports conduct will be taken into account, this according to the number of yellow and red cards obtained.
Yellow card — 1 point less
Red card (double yellow) — 3 points less
straight red card — 4 points less
