Who Will Win?

Although Wales will enter this clash with Argentina as slight favourites courtesy of claiming top spot in Pool C, this game could be incredibly close. After all, Argentina performed admirably in Pool D and they comfortably defeated Japan to claim their place in the last eight.

Head-to-Head

Wales and Argentina have clashed 21 times since 1991, and most of the games have been incredibly feisty.

Our data doesn’t quite go back this far. However, it does show you exactly how the two teams have performed in the last four Wales vs Argentina games. As well as the head-to-head record, our data allows you to see the average number of points scored per team as well as other metrics, such as how often the home team wins and how often the team that scores the first try wins.

Team Form

Both teams will come into this encounter in scintillating form. Wales went unbeaten throughout Pool C and have not been beaten since they were comprehensively defeated by the Springboks in a Rugby World Cup warm-up game.

Meanwhile, Argentina finished second in Pool D. Although they suffered defeat at the hands of England in their first game of the tournament, they subsequently defeated Samoa, Chile and Japan in order to qualify for the quarter-finals.

Below our team form guide, you can see in-depth stats about how the two teams have performed in their last five games, including stats about the number of tries they’ve scored, their overall points difference and the number of times they’ve scored the first try.

Player Head-to-Head

Big games like the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals are often decided by moments of brilliance or huge individual performances from star players.

For this reason, we’ve also provided stats on how two stars of the game in Rhys Patchell and Nicolas Sanchez have performed recently. Patchell won’t be playing for Wales, but could Sanchez fire Argentina to glory?

Wales vs Argentina is a mouth-watering clash. However, all four Rugby World Cup quarter-finals are being played this weekend, so there’s plenty of action to watch. Check out the latest fixtures and results below.

Wales vs Argentina 2023: Detailed Match Preview

On Saturday 14th October, 2023, Wales will face Argentina in the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals at Stade de Marseille in Marseille.

This game is a huge clash between two in-form sides who will both be hopeful of advancing to the semi-finals. While Warren Gatland’s Wales side have been hugely impressive during the pool stage, Argentina enter this clash with something to prove and fight for. After all, entering the tournament, many believed that they’d top Pool D ahead of England.

Overall, this encounter promises to be a nailbiter between two sides that appear evenly matched on paper. While Warren Gatland believes his Welsh side are yet to play their best rugby (despite winning 19/20 points in the pool stage), Argentina head coach Michael Cheika thinks his team will ‘play some footie’ in the quarter-final as the pressure will be firmly off his men - we can’t wait to see how this one pans out.

When was the first Wales vs Argentina game? When was the first Wales vs Argentina game?

Yes. Wales also faced Argentina at the 1991 Rugby World Cup and the 1999 Rugby World Cup. Wales won both of these games.
