Poland

  • Competition: World Cup
  • Date: Tuesday, 22nd, August 2022
  • Kickoff: 16:00 UK/17.00 CET
  • Venue: Stadium 974 (Doha)

Since the World Cup was founded (1930), Mexico is one of those national teams that are regular participants in this competition and this will be their 17th participation, which means they failed to qualify only 5 times. Their path in the qualifications was quite easy, as El Tri finished the group in 2nd position with 28 points, and with a 2-0 triumph over El Salvador in the last round, they secured their 8th consecutive participation in the World Cup. In a group that includes Poland and Argentina, the Mexicans are aware that they will have a difficult task to secure the knockout stage for the eighth time in a row.

For a quality country with a lot of talent, this will be only the eighth participation in the biggest international football competition for the Poles, but they proved to be a more successful team than the Mexicans. Namely, "Biało-czerwoni" achieved their greatest success in this competition in 1974 and 1982, when they won the bronze medal both times, but in the last three appearances they failed to advance beyond the group stage. Poland did not go directly to Qatar, but they secured their ticket through the play-off, beating Sweden 2-0 in the final, before Russia were removed.

Mexico vs Poland Betting Tips: Under 2.5

These two national teams have met eight times during their history, seven of which were friendly meetings, while they played only one competitive match at the World Cup in Argentina in 1978, where Poland won 3-1. Since the beginning of the 21st century, Poland and Mexico have played three friendly meetings, each of which contained no more than two goals, including a narrow triumph for Mexico last time - in 2017. Considering the high stakes of both teams, we expect a similar range of goals as in the previous three duels between these national teams.

Argentina is the clear favorite, while Saudi Arabia is the outsider of the group, so that means only one thing, and that is that Mexico and Poland will have a fierce battle for second place in Group C. What is also important for our bet is that both Mexico and Poland were strong in defense during the qualifying campaign, especially El Tri, who have kept seven clean sheets from their previous 10 games in all competitions. Considering the fact that the stake is huge, we do not expect attractive, nor open football, but a cautious game from both sides and with few chances.

Poland Team News

Despite the fact that Poland has always had quality players, Qatar will be their eighth participation in the World Cup, while they finished their previous appearances already in the group stage.

Most of the players in the Polish national team play in Europe, so it is no wonder that they are one of the candidates to secure the knockout stage.

The legend of the Polish national team is certainly the current player of Barcelona - Robert Lewandowski, who scored the most goals (76) and played the most games (132).
