Poland vs Saudi Arabia: in need of a victory

Group C of the Qatar 2022 World Cup has shown that no match will be easy and that upsets are the order of the day. Indeed, the a priori weaker teams are standing up to the candidates and next Saturday Poland will face the big surprise, Saudi Arabia, where the three points will be vital for the aspirations of both teams to reach the round of 16.

On the one hand, Poland disappointed in their debut against Mexico and despite having everything they needed to take all three points, they were unable to prevail against the Aztecs. Now, they will need the three points to get a good start for the group finale against Argentina, even though they are not favored to advance to the round of 16.

For their part, Saudi Arabia pulled off the biggest upset so far at the Qatar 2022 World Cup with a stunning 2-1 win over Argentina, the main favorite to reach the final. Indeed, the team coached by Hervé Renard was very well positioned and a draw against Poland will be a good result to define their qualification to the round of 16 against Mexico on the last matchday.

Last matches of Poland

The Poles disappointed in their World Cup debut. Not only because of the apathetic goalless draw against Mexico, where a priori they were far superior to the Aztecs, but also because of the performance shown throughout the ninety minutes.

Poland never knew how to impose itself on its rival and left some defensive worries that forced Szczesny, its goalkeeper, to save in extremis to avoid a Mexican goal. To make matters worse, at the best moment, the Poles had a penalty in their favor that, incredibly, was missed by their goal scorer Robert Lewandowsky.

Beyond the result, the most important thing for Michniewicz will be to recover the defensive strength to dream of qualifying for the round of 16 with a win against surprise package Saudi Arabia. It is worth remembering that Poland had reached Qatar 2022 after finishing as England's runner-up in Group I with 20 points in 10 matches played with 6 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats, scoring 30 goals and conceding 11 in a good goal difference.

Poland's last games in the UEFA qualifiers were as follows: 1-0 defeat of Albania, 4-1 away win over Andorra and a surprising 1-2 home defeat against Hungary. Subsequently, Poland reached the playoffs, where they beat Sweden 2-0 in a surprising result for sports betting that allowed them to earn their place in Qatar 2022.

Poland currently sits in third place in Group C with one point, having scored no goals and conceded none, so a win against Saudi Arabia will be vital to their hopes of reaching the Round of 16.


Last matches of Saudi Arabia

Hervé Renard and his team broke all sports bets and will forever remain in the great history of the World Cups after having achieved a feat. Saudi Arabia emulated "David vs. Goliath" and after ninety minutes of pure intensity debuted with a victory that left them as group C leaders.

Saudi Arabia showed solid arguments not to be underestimated by anyone. Intensity in all their lines, fast defensive retreat, constant cuts to leave their opponents permanently in an advanced position and flashes of quality from players such as Al Shehri and Al Dawsari, scorers of the two goals for the Asian team.

It is worth remembering that Saudi Arabia had reached Qatar 2022 after finishing as Group B leader with 23 points from 10 matches as a result of 7 wins, 2 draws and one defeat, scoring 12 goals and conceding 6 goals. Saudi Arabia's last matches were as follows: they defeated Oman 1-0, lost 2-0 against Saudi Arabia, drew 1-1 against China and closed with a narrow 1-0 win against Australia on the last matchday to qualify for Qatar 2022.

Currently, Saudi Arabia leads Group C despite not being the sports betting favorite with 3 points, 2 goals scored and 1 goal conceded. A win against Poland will practically leave them with one foot in the Round of 16, thus repeating the feat of the 1994 World Cup in the United States.

Background between both

Poland and Saudi Arabia have never faced each other in World Cups, so Qatar 2022 will be the inauguration of the World Cup statistics between them. However, they have met on 4 occasions in international friendlies with 1 Saudi Arabian victory and 3 Polish victories in a more than interesting fact for the Qatar 2022 World Cup predictions.

The focus on...

Despite missing the penalty against Mexico, Robert Lewandowsky remains Poland's main attacking threat to open the scoring against Saudi Arabia. For their part, Zielinski and Milik can score at any time despite the fact that they have yet to score in Qatar 2022.

The focus on...

Al Shehri and Al Dawsari are Saudi Arabia's main favorites to score against Poland as they are on fire after scoring against Argentina on the opening day.
