Latest Tips and Odds for Poland vs Argentina
This has to be one of the most anticipated matches in Group C because two of the best players from both teams who managed to win the Player of the Year award will clash in a head-to-head match for the advancement to the next stage. Poland's Lewandowski vs Argentina's Messi. Let's check out the match and see more of our picks for it.
Argentina to Win
The bookmakers favor Argentina for a couple of reasons for this Group C game. They easily qualified for the tournament with no losses at all in the qualifying stage. On the other hand, Poland's qualification was harder because they had to go through a playoff round despite Lewandowski's performance. Argentina also dominates Poland when it comes to their history in the tournament because they have two titles under their belt (1978 & 1986), while Poland's best performance was third place back in 1974.
Multiscores – 0:1; 0:2; 0:3250
Poland is one of the likely favorites for the runner-up position in the group, but Argentina remains the favorite. Despite Lewandowski, we don't think that they will be able to score goals against this particular opponent. On the other hand, Argentina's arsenal consists of Lionel Messi and Lautaro Martinez. Argentina also won four of the last five games they played (no matter if it was a competition or an international friendly game) with clean sheets.

Lewandowski vs Messi Showdown in the World Cup
Argentina has players, like Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria, Martinez Lautaro, Paulo Dybala, and others playing for them, and they have created and tested their team with better efficiency than Poland. Argentina has also managed to get further and even win the World Cup two times, while Poland's success ended in the 1990s and despite qualifying three times, they only managed to get to the group stage and not further.
The European team has a tendency to beat the odds and they have done it on a smaller scale on multiple occasions. This time though, their opponents have one of the best teams in the world and their experience in this particular tournament is greater and more rewarding than Poland's experience here. We don't think Lewandowski would be enough to shake up Argentina's national team. Poland already had a tough qualifying process and went through an additional stage to get here. We know they are resilient as a team, but we don't think they can surprise us against this particular opponent.
