Poland vs Argentina Betting Tips

We kick off our set of expert predictions for Poland’s fixture against Argentina with a dip into the goal markets. Both teams have players capable of making the difference in the final third and with Robert Lewandowski up and running for the Poles and Lionel Messi off the mark for La Albiceleste, the goal-scoring potential in both camps is high.

Both Teams to Score – 6/5

Bettors on the lookout for betting tips with juicier odds might fancy backing Poland to avoid defeat in the double chance market on matchday three. The well-organised Poles are unbeaten in Qatar so far and they sit top of Group C as a result. Argentina have blown hot and cold, and they could find it tough to beat their dogged European opponents.

Poland Double Chance – 13/8

Legendary striker Robert Lewandowski is closing in on 80 goals for his country and the Polish hitman notched for the first time ever at a World Cup when he doubled his team’s advantage against Saudi Arabia on Saturday. The effort should arm the 34-year-old with plenty of confidence ahead of matchday three and we’re tipping the lethal finisher to make his mark again against Argentina.

Poland vs Argentina Analysis

Argentina

Argentina recovered from their surprise matchday one defeat to Saudi Arabia with a hugely-important 2-0 win over Mexico at the weekend. Lionel Messi inspired them to victory against El Tri and La Albiceleste will need the mercurial attacker to be at his best again against Poland.

Key Players: Lautaro Martinez, Lionel Messi, Angel di Maria, 

Team news: Head Coach Lionel Scaloni brought Lisandro Martinez, Guido Rodriguez and Alexis Mac Allister into his XI against Mexico, though the latter could lose his spot for this week's clash with Poland.

Predicted Lineup: E. Martinez - Montiel, Otamendi, Lisandro Martinez, Acuna - Di Maria, De Paul, Rodriguez, Fernandez - Messi, Lautaro Martinez

Poland

Poland only need a point against Argentina to book their place in the knockout phase of the World Cup. Their haul of four points from two matches against Mexico and Saudi Arabia has put them on firm footing in Group C.

Key Players: Wojciech Szczęsny, Piotr Zieliński, Robert Lewandowski

Team news: Poland boss Czeslaw Michniewicz has used a flat back four in Qatar and a similar system should be deployed against Argentina. Przemyslaw Frankowski, Grzegorz Krychowiak, Krystian Bielik and Piotr Zieliński should form a quartet in midfield.

Predicted Lineup: Szczęsny - Cash, Glik, Kiwior, Bereszynski - Zieliński, Krychowiak, Bielik, Frankowski - Milik, Lewandowski
