France vs Poland World Cup 2022 Prediction

France looked strong in the group stage and remain one of the favourites to go all the way in Qatar and claim the World Cup. Up next for Deschamps' side is a last 16 tie against a Poland side that only just made it out of their group on goal difference. Lewandowski and co will have to perform much better than they have done so far in this competition if they want to make it through to the quarter finals.

 

France to Win-to-Nil

These two countries have played one another 16 times in total and with 8 wins 5 draws and just 3 defeats, it's France that have a healthy lead in the pair's head-to-head record. France have kept clean sheets in each of their last three meetings with Poland and the Polish failed to score in two of their three group games at the World Cup, so you can see why we're backing France to win-to-nil.

Kylian Mbappe to Score at Any Time

Mbappe is on course to secure the Golden Boot at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, just as many people predicted. The PSG forward scored 3-goals during the group stage and will be the biggest threat to the Polish defence in the last 16. We're backing Mbappe to score against Poland and help lead his country through to the Quater-Finals in the process.

While France secure a spot in the knockout stages quite comfortably, Poland had to worry about their place in the Round of 16 until the final whistle of their final match and Mexico's game against Saudi Arabia. In the end, they went through and now they will meet the defending champions. So, let's take a look at the average odds for this duel:

  • France odds: 10/29 (1.34)
  • Draw odds: 9/2 (5.50)
  • Poland odds: 10/1 (11.00)

Clearly, the bookies have no doubt who the more likely winner is with France having a win probability of 74.4%. Meanwhile, Poland's win would be a huge surprise since their win probability is just 9.1%. A draw is a bit more likely with a probability of 18.2%.

When it comes to goals, it's more likely that we will see a low-scoring game, at least according to the average odds. After all, the odds on under 2.5 total goals are 41/50 (1.82), which is a probability of 54.9%. On the other hand, the average odds on over 2.5 total goals are 19/17 (2.12), which implies a probability of 47.2%.

However, if you are interested in betting on high odds, the best choice is the correct score betting market. The most like correct scores for France vs Poland, at least according to average odds, are 1-0, 2-0, and 3-0 to France.

Do France have anything to fear against Poland?

France

France started the tournament off with a big 4-1 win against Australia. Despite going a goal down in that game, France dominated the match and thoroughly deserved the 3 pts. Next up for France was supposedly their toughest game of the group stage but Denmark didn't offer enough going forward and France claimed a 2-1 win to secure their place in the last 16 with a game to spare. That last game came against Tunisia in which France made a few changes to their starting lineup. The Africans needed to win and got it thanks to a solitary second-half strike, but it wasn't enough for Tunisia to progress.

On top of their good performances in group stages, the defending champions also have a fully fit squad ahead of the start of the knockout stages.

France Predicted Lineup:

Lloris – Kounde, Varane, Upamecano, T. Hernandez – Tchouameni, Rabiot – Dembele, Griezmann, Mbappe – Giroud

Poland

Poland drew 0-0 with Mexico on matchday 1 but it could have been much better if it wasn't for Lewandowski missing a penalty. Up next for the Eastern Europeans came Saudi Arabia and that game saw Lewandowski score his first-ever World Cup goal for Poland, who won the game 2-0. However, a 2 -0 defeat against Argentina followed in what was a poor display from Poland. Thankfully, Mexico only won 2-1 against Saudi Arabia and Poland progressed in second place via goal difference.

When it comes to team news, Poland also has no injury concerns at the moment, nor they have to worry about any suspensions.

Poland Predicted Lineup:

Szczesny – Cash, Glik, Kiwior, Bereszynski – Frankowski, Bielik, Krychowiak, Zielinski – Lewandowski, Milik
