Argentina are back on track at Qatar 2022 and fancied to book a place in the last 16 by edging out Poland.

Everything points towards this crucial Group C showdown being a tight tussle, though, with Poland a point ahead at the top of the table going into the final round of fixtures.

We reckon 21/20 for La Albiceleste to win and under 3.5 goals in the game is a rock-solid Poland vs Argentina prediction.

Poland Odds

Poland followed up a goalless draw with Mexico by seeing off Saudi Arabia 2-0 and are hoping to make it past the group stage for the first time since 1986.

Star man Robert Lewandowski set up Piotr Zielinski for Saturday night’s opener on 39 minutes.

Goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny helped to maintain the lead, saving Salem Al Dawsari’s penalty and then recovering to brilliantly tip over the rebound from Mohammed Al Burayk.

Barcelona striker Lewandowski later pounced on a defensive error to make the game safe, while Poland also hit the woodwork twice.

Lewandowski showed plenty of emotion after making amends for missing a spot-kick versus Mexico.

“I think the older I get, the more emotional I get – and I’m aware when it comes to World Cups it might be my last one,” the 34-year-old said.

“After I scored, everything that I had inside – the dreams and also the importance of the goal, and how I scored – all those dreams from childhood were fulfilled and came true.”

That response highlights how Poland will fight to progress, especially as this pool may well come down to goal difference.

Looking at the 23/10 for that to happen by just a one-goal margin is tempting.

Argentina Odds

Argentina put themselves in trouble by slipping up in a 2-1 loss to Saudi Arabia and the pressure showed against Mexico.

However, just as an ill-tempered game needed someone to lift it, Lionel Messi stepped in to rescue his side with a well-taken goal in the 64th minute.

Enzo Fernandez curled home a second with three minutes to go to kill off the Mexican challenge in front of an official attendance of 88,966.

“We felt eager to turn the situation around,” commented Messi. “Luckily, we won and that was a weight off our shoulders, and we have the peace of mind that it is all down to us again.

“I think the first half was difficult due to the situation and our need to win; we couldn’t find spaces, we weren’t moving the ball from side to side, but that was normal given our situation.

“In the second half, we started playing our game, and started doing what we stand for. Long possession, finding space between the lines, then the goal changed the game.”

With so much at stake again here, it would be no surprise to see this match follow a similar pattern.

Last year’s Copa America champions can show their class again, though, and 29/10 for Draw HT/Argentina FT is added to our Poland vs Argentina betting tips.
