Poland vs Saudi Arabia World Cup 2022 Prediction

Saudi Arabia shocked the world when they beat Argentina 2-1 on matchday 1. Poland take on the Arab nation after securing a point against Mexico but will Lewandowski and co make the same mistakes as the Argentinians?

 

Both Teams to Score – Yes

We're expecting an entertaining 90-minutes between one nation that will be buzzing and the other that really need a win following a bore draw in the first round of fixtures. Both teams scored when Saudi Arabia and Poland met back in 2006 and three of the Arab country's last six outings have ended the same way, including that shock 2-1 win over Argentina.

Lewandoski will be hoping to have more support in this game after Poland seemed to play for a draw against Mexico and the onus will be on the Europeans to take the game to their opponents as Saudi Arabia would probably be happy with a draw.

Over 2.5 Goals

We've backed at least three goals to be scored in this game, just as they were when these two sides last met. Poland will have to play more attacking on matchday 2 as this is a game they really have to win as their last match is against the group favourites, Argentina.

Saudi Arabia have already proved itself to be an attacking side after they beat Argentina 2-1 with two very well-taken goals but they will give Poland chances to score and with Lewandowski up-front, that usually means goals for Poland.

After the first round, Saudi Arabia is clearly the biggest surprise of the tournament, but can they keep the buzz going against Poland, another good team that will be cautioned by Argentina's woes against the Saudi team? Let's see what the bookies say and check out the average odds for this match:

  • Poland odds: 7/8 (1.88)
  • Draw odds: 37/15 (3.47)
  • Saudi Arabia odds: 4/1 (5.00)

As we can see, the bookies once again seem to underestimate Saudi Arabia since the average odds only give them a 20% win probability against Poland, even though they enter this game after beating Argentina. Meanwhile, Poland's win probability is 53.3%, making them the favourites in this match. Lastly, the probability of a draw is comes to 28.8%, according to average odds.

When it comes to goals, the bookies don't see a lot of them being scored here. The average odds for the under 2.5 total goals betting market are 11/18 (1.61), which implies a probability of 62.1%. On the other hand, the average odds on over 2.5 total goals are 6/4 (2.50), which is equal to a 40% probability.

However, if you are on the hunt for higher odds, you may want to check out the correct score market and if you do, keep in mind that the most likely outcomes, according to average odds, are 1-0 and 2-0 for Poland, as well as a 1-1 draw.

Poland vs Saudi Arabia: Our Preview of the Match? 

Poland 

Both Poland and Mexico disappointed in their opening game which ended goalless. The pair looked at times like they were happy to take a draw, perhaps due to the shock result in the other group game. We expect a lot more from the Europeans against Saudi Arabia but Poland have to be careful as this Saudi Arabia side will attack in numbers and with pace and power.

Polish team has fitness concerns regarding Krystian Bielik and Bartosz Bereszynski, bt they will likely be able to play in the next game.

Poland Predicted Lineup

Szczesny – Zalewski, Kiwior, Glik, Bednarek, Cash – Szymanski, Krychowiak, Zielinski – Lewandowski, Milik

Saudi Arabia 

Saudi Arabia defied the odds to pull off the biggest shock in World Cup history on matchday 1. A 2-1 win over Messi and co put Saudi Arabia top of the group and now that they are full of confidence, Poland better watch out. We expect Saudi Arabia to play with a high line once again and to attack Poland at every opportunity but they will have to watch out for Lewandoski who offers an aerial threat that none of the Argentina players did.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia won't be able to count on  Yasser Al-Shahrani since he was flown home after a succesful jaw surgery, whcih was the result of his gruesome collision with Saudi Arabia's goalkeeper in the opener.

Saudi Arabia Predicted Lineup

Al-Owais – Al-Burayk, Al-Boleahi, Al Tambakti, Abdulhamid – Al Malki, Kanno, Al-Abed – Al Dawsari, Al-Shehiri, Al Buraikan
