Poland vs Saudi Arabia Lineup: Poland will face unexpected group champions Saudi Arabia on Saturday in a game that will determine who advances to the World Cup 2022.
In Tuesday’s opening match, the Bialo-czerwoni drew 0-0 with Mexico thanks to Robert Lewandowski’s missed penalty, while their opponents defeated Argentina to pull off one of the biggest World Cup upsets in recent memory.
On November 22, 2022, Guillermo Ochoa of Mexico saves a penalty kick from Poland’s Robert Lewandowski.
Polish talisman Lewandowski was hauled to the ground by Hector Moreno in the penalty area on Tuesday, giving Poland a wonderful opportunity to steal all three points against Mexico after a lackluster, possibly overly cautious opening 45 minutes at Stadium 974.
With the team in desperate need of points, there is a chance that Arkadiusz Milik will be brought in from the start.
Saudi Arabia’s full-back Yasser Al-Shahrani was reportedly flown home from the World Cup after undergoing successful jaw surgery after colliding with his own goalkeeper late in Tuesday’s famous win.
As a result, Mohammed Al-Burayk is likely to start from the start, in an otherwise very familiar side to the one that shocked the footballing world just four days ago.
Poland vs Saudi Arabia Potential Starting Lineup & Prediction
Poland’s potential starting lineup: Szczesny; Zalewski, Kiwior, Glik, Bednarek, Cash; Szymanski, Krychowiak, Zielinski; Lewandowski, Milik.
Saudi Arabia’s possible starting lineup: Al-Owais; Al-Burayk, Al-Boleahi, Al Tambakti, Abdulhamid; Al Malki, Kanno, Al-Abed; Al Dawsari, Al-Shehiri, Al Buraikan.
Poland 1-1 Saudi Arabia
Only a will win will suffice for Poland here, so we anticipate them to play more expansively and aggressively in search of the crucial three points.
Saudi Arabia, on the other hand, has proven that they can beat anyone, and we believe they will have enough to frustrate their opponents and take another significant step toward qualification.
