- Poland drew its first game in the group stage
- Saudi Arabia won their first game in the group stage
- Both teams have yet to play each other.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup is still ongoing and we’re going into the second round, but getting the predictions right for Qatar 2022 has been a challenge.
There are eight groups in the tournament, consisting of 32 teams. Two top teams in each team advance to the round of 16 before the quarterfinals, semifinals, finals and third place.
Some groups have played their first games. We can see some teams at the top of their group standings.
Although there are still two games left for them, we can’t decide who will go out as the top two teams in their groups.
After their first games, the Netherlands and Ecuador sit at the top of Group A, ahead of Senegal and the hosts (Qatar).
Furthermore, England are already at the top of Group B after picking up three points in Monday’s clash with Iran.
Wales and USA share the same point after drawing 1-1 in their clash, with Iran in fourth place. On the other hand, Saudi Arabia sits at the top of Group C after beating Argentina side in a surprise 2-1 win.
At the same time, Mexico and Poland shared a point after drawing in their clash, leaving Argentina in fourth place.
We will look at two teams at the World Cup in Qatar aiming to make it out of Group C with two games left. Check out our Poland vs Saudi Arabia match prediction below.

Poland odds breakdown
It is important to look at the betting odds before making a Poland vs Saudi Arabia match prediction.
The battle line has been drawn and the odds for the second tournament match between Poland and Saudi Arabia are in place. Poland’s odds are lower than Saudi Arabia’s, making them our preferred choice.
Also, they have one more game to win, so we will give them our support to win this game. Her odds of winning this match are -143, which is fine with her.
Saudi Arabia’s odds breakdown
The odds of winning the World Cup in Saudi Arabia are +375, which is high compared to Poland, but anything can happen in football and we’ve seen that since the start of the 2022 World Cup.
The Saudi Arabian team beat Argentina and their chances were the best.
Whenever Saudi Arabia gets the +375 odds to win a game their expected odds of winning is 215 but looking back at their previous games wherever they get those odds they win at 20% which is risky to win your bet put.
Poland vs Saudi Arabia betting analysis
Both teams have never played against each other, so it will be difficult game for Saudi Arabia against Poland because they are challenging.
Therefore, scoring three points will help both teams get closer to qualifying for the next stage. Every team’s dream is to win the FIFA World Cup, so three points in this game puts them in a good position.
The Saudi Arabian team hasn’t done much since taking part in the World Cup. Saudi Arabia’s only best performance was when they reached the round of 16, that was in 1994 when they were defeated 1-3 against the Swedish team.
So now is another opportunity for them to repeat history. They have to do better to qualify for the next stage, which won’t be as easy as we think.
On the other hand, Poland is among the best since participating in the World Cup. They appeared on nine separate occasions, finishing third in 1974 and 1982.
They can also repeat what they have done in the past, but first they need to get three points against Saudi Arabia.
Before the start of the World Cup, Poland played a friendly match with the Chilean national team and some of their best players were absent from the game.
Chile had more possession against Poland but they won the game after Krzysztof Piatek scored.
They have players like Robert Lewandowski and Matty Cash who are key players on the team.
They have a good squad and a chance to advance to the next round if they play as a team and can take the two games left in their group stage games seriously. We assume that the Poland goal prediction for this clash will be the most popular.
Saudi Arabia Analysis
The game is not in favor of Saudi Arabia. They have two players who are already the tournament’s top scorers and they have accumulated three points in their table.
If they draw against Poland and then win their next game, they will almost certainly qualify for the next round.
They have Salem Al-Dawsari and Saleh Al-Shehri who can score for their team and Salman Al-Faraj is the player who will lead the team in the next game.
We expect the team to be pushing for this game as they increase their chances of winning this game after their incredible win against Argentina.
Poland vs. Saudi Arabia Selection and Prediction
Poland and Saudi Arabia want the three points. However, this game can only be won or drawn and we believe that Poland can win. They need three points more than Saudi Arabia.
In this case, we will support Poland to win as they are set for their first tournament victory. Below is the match prediction between Poland and Saudi Arabia and the choice for this tie.
