In the 1/8 finals of the World Cup in Qatar, the French national team will play against Poland in Doha.
FranceDidier Deschamps, as expected, did not try to somehow win Group D by a large margin from his rivals, and therefore France came out as a reserve team for the last match, which was on November 30.
Many of the French team's reserves in the game against Tunisia showed a rather faded game, and therefore it is not surprising that the meeting ended with a sensational victory of the team from Africa with a score of 1:0. The only goal in this confrontation was scored in the 58th minute, after a transfer from the center of the field from Aissa Laiduni, Wahbi Khazri made a dash to the penalty area and then confidently shot into the right corner of the goal past Steve Mandand. Soon after, Didier Deschamps already released some leaders on the field, in particular, Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, Adrien Rabiot and Ousmane Dembele appeared on the field. As a result, the French national team was able to score a return goal in the time compensated by the referee, it happened at 90+ 8 minutes, but the goal was canceled due to Griezmann's offside.
Despite this defeat, the French national team won Group D with six points.
PolandBut the team of Czeslaw Mihniewicz played a very weak match on November 30, but thanks to a favorable combination of circumstances, Poland still got out of Group C. Poland lost to Argentina with a score of 0:2 in an important match for itself, but thanks to Mexico's weak game against Saudi Arabia, the Mexicans won an insufficiently large victory, Poland still slipped into the playoffs.off the World Cup in Qatar.
As for the game against Argentina, Poland sat the whole match at their own goal and as a result, during the whole meeting, they never hit the opponent's goal. At the same time, Argentina could have scored a lot more goals, but in the 39th minute Lionel Messi could not convert a penalty. As a result, the Argentines scored their goals in the second half. In the 46th minute Poland conceded the first goal, and in the 67th minute Argentina scored the second goal.
ForecastIn this match, France, of course, is considered by the bookmakers to be an almost unconditional favorite.
Considering how poorly Poland works against strong teams in attack, here France, with a well-structured game, should not have particularly serious problems to reach the quarterfinals of the tournament. At the same time, here the French are quite capable of scoring quite a lot, we suggest that you put more than 2.5 goals on the individual total of the French national team.
