What's At Stake
Mexico v Poland Match Preview
This will be an important win to secure for both sides looking to make it through to the the Round of 16. Mexico will certainly feel the most pressure as they will be facing Argentina next while Poland will take on Saudi Arabia (who are playing Argentina in their first game, see match preview).
Both teams have shown poor recent form with heavy losses against Uruguay for the Mexican (3-0) and an absolute thrashing for the Poles against #2 UEFA Nations League ranked Belgium (6-1).
On the Polish side, this may be superstar Robert Lewandowski‘s last World Cup so he will undoubtedly have a lot to prove. Lewandowski scored 35 Bundesliga goals last season and won the FIFA 2021 Best Men’s Player award.
For Mexico, Jesus ‘Tecatito’ Corona (who plays for Spanish side Sevilla) should have an impact with his vibrant style of play while Ajax defensive midfielder, 24-year-old Edson Alvarez should drive the transition game for the Mexican side.
CXSports‘ Mexico v Poland Prediction: Mexico to win 2-1. The Mexicans tend to outperform during big tournaments while the Poles tend to underperform on the world stage.
