Argentina will have a chance to top their group against Poland after their shock loss to Saudi Arabia in their World Cup opening game. The tournament favorites, in the opinion of many, surprised the globe when they lost to Saudi Arabia in their initial match in Qatar but later recovered to upset Mexico by a score of 2-0. With three points, they are just behind Poland, who defeated Saudi Arabia and took the lead in Group C after overcoming a goalless stutter against Mexico on matchday one.
Poland team news
Robert Lewandowski eventually scored his first World Cup goal in Poland’s win over Saudi Arabia. When Poland faced Saudi Arabia, Czeslaw Michniewicz chose to start Arkadiusz Milik beside Lewandowski, which appeared to be the key to releasing their superstar. If his country is to defeat Argentina, he will be expected to add to that number. If they are able to emerge from the victory without any further injury concerns, anticipate them to remain in their current configuration.

After learning earlier in the day that Kylian Mbappe had tied his World Cup goal total, Lionel Messi only needed to score against Mexico to maintain his position at the top of the leaderboard. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner was unimpressive prior to scoring, but he will not hope the goal can properly start his tournament. In Argentina’s second game, Lionel Scaloni made a number of adjustments, although not all of them appeared to function as intended. He may need to make a few more adjustments as he attempts to identify his strongest XI.
Poland vs Argentina World Cup score prediction
Argentina needs to step up its game on Wednesday after a terrible performance on matchday one and a performance that wasn’t much better on matchday two. It’s understandable that so many people had predicted that they would win the tournament given their star power and previous performance. However, because to their exceedingly sluggish play thus far, Poland will be wise to avoid leaving themselves open to the threat of their offensive prowess.
