When I want to ask "Which country is playing against ~random country name~ at/or/in today's game?"

, which one is the right preposition to use, at or in ?

  • Also, does simply saying 'is playing' (without 'against' after that)mean the same thimg?

The answer to your question is in.

Typically at would precede the name of the stadium, as in:

Side A are playing (against) side B at the New Stadium in today's game/match.

In this context the preposition against is optional and is frequently omitted.
