Poland v Saudi Arabia

Poland will be kicking themselves for getting no more than a goalless draw out of their opening game against Mexico, and no-one more so than legendary striker Robert Lewandowski who missed a great chance to break his World Cup finals duck when he failed to convert a second-half penalty. Poland have not progressed from a World Cup group since 1986, and, with a wounded Argentina still to come, they know that nothing but a win will do against the bubbling Saudis if they are to buck that trend.

Poland tournament odds: 150/1

Saudi Arabia caused the first major shock of the tournament, and indeed Tuesday’s 2-1 comeback win against Argentina caused a seismic wave across the tournament. Riding their luck with a high back line that was occasionally exposed in the first half, Saudi Arabia went in at half-time only one goal down to a Lionel Messi penalty. Two quick Saudi goals just after the break turned the game on its head, and although there was some back-to-the-wall defending at times, the Middle East nation were good value for their historic win. 

Saudi Arabia tournament odds: 300/1

It will be interesting to see if Saudi Arabia employ the same high defensive line as they did against Argentina, and whether their luck will hold if they do. A second win is likely to secure them a spot in the knockout phase, but Poland, and Lewandowski in particular, will be looking for an improved performance to keep Polish hopes alive.
