The United States Men's National Team look to continue their success in the all-time series when they face Saudi Arabia in an international friendly on Tuesday. The USMNT have posted a 3-1-2 record against the Saudis, recording a 2-0 victory in the third-place match of the 1999 FIFA Confederations Cup in their most recent meeting. Both sides played a friendly match on Friday, with the U.S. suffering a 2-0 loss against Japan and Saudi Arabia battling Ecuador to a 0-0 draw. This will be the final tune-up for the USMNT before the 2022 FIFA World Cup in November, while the Saudis have five more friendlies scheduled before they compete in the tournament.

Why USA can win

The USMNT are capable of erupting offensively as they posted a 5-1 victory against Panama during World Cup qualifying in March and a 5-0 triumph over Grenada in the Concacaf Nations League in June. Christian Pulisic, who led the Americans with five goals during qualifying, scored three times in the win versus Panama. The 24-year-old forward has not played for the USMNT since their 3-0 victory against Morocco in a friendly in March but is expected to be in the starting lineup on Tuesday.

The U.S. hope to continue to receive production from Jesus Ferreira, who also scored against Panama. The son of 2010 Major League Soccer MVP David Ferreira, the 21-year-old forward registered his first international hat trick when he scored four times in the rout of Grenada. Jesus Ferreira is fourth in MLS this year and shares FC Dallas' single-season record with 18 goals after registering a brace in FC Dallas' 2-1 victory against LAFC on Sept. 10.

Why Saudi Arabia can win

The Saudis produced 34 goals over 18 matches during World Cup qualifying, the fewest among the six Asian teams to earn a spot in the tournament. But they allowed only 10 and finished first in their group in both the second and third rounds with a combined 13-4-1 record. The Green Falcons have given up a total of three goals over their last five matches across all competitions.

Winger Salem Al-Dawsari scored seven goals during World Cup qualifying, tying him for the team lead with injured striker Saleh Al-Shehri. The 31-year-old netted the lone goal in Saudi Arabia's 1-0 triumph over Australia in late March. Al-Dawsari is tied with midfielder Fahad Al-Muwallad, who recorded four goals and three assists during World Cup qualifying, for the most goals on the national team's current roster with 17 across all competitions.
