The teams of Poland and Argentina will meet in the third round of the group stage of the World Cup. Will one of the favorites of the tournament be able to win and safely enter the playoffs, or is there a sensation waiting for us? We'll figure it out.
Poland leads the standings after two rounds, with four points scored. In the first match, the European team broke up with Poland (0:0), and in the second match they beat Saudi Arabia (2:0). In the match against the Saudis, a penalty was reflected by Wojciech Szczesny.
Poland did not lose in the first two matches at the World Cup for the first time since 1986.
It is enough for the Poles to draw to reach the playoffs of the tournament, but even if they lose, they have a chance of reaching the next stage, everything will depend on the parallel match between Mexico and Saudi Arabia.
One of the main favorites of the tournament began the World Cup with a sensational defeat against Saudi Arabia (1:2), thereby interrupting a series of 36 matches without defeats. And in the next match, Lionel Scaloni's wards were stronger than the Mexican national team (2:0).
Two of the three goals scored were scored by PSG forward Lionel Messi, who scored for the eighth time at the World Cup and caught up with the legendary Diego Maradona.
The South American team needs a victory to guarantee itself a place in the playoffs (and the first one), if a different result is recorded, then its fate will be decided in another match of group b
Statistics and figures
- Argentina is the favorite of the match;
- Argentina needs a win to guarantee its entry into the playoffs for sure;
