Argentina's team line up in front of fans, as they will before Argentina vs Poland

Argentina vs Poland – Predictions and Best Odds

Argentina Current Run of Form

The majority of the Argentina side has looked poor, to say the least. Scoring a single goal against Saudi Arabia in a 2-1 loss was a poor start, followed by a long-range finish by Lionel Messi against Mexico to break the deadlock. Either the rest of the side needs to wake up, or the Greatest of All Time will have to continue an incredible run of form. 

Poland Current Run of Form

Poland started the campaign with a fairly drab 0-0 draw with Mexico, before going on to beat Saudi Arabia 2-0 in what was a closer affair than the Poles will like. Robert Lewandowski scored his very first World Cup goal in this match, taking full advantage of the opportunity that playing Saudi Arabia offered. 

What Each Team Needs

Both teams will win the group with a victory in this match, with Poland in the more comfortable position. If Saudi Arabia win their match Argentina need a victory, with a Mexico win requiring a draw. Losing is unacceptable for La Albicelestes. Poland simply need a point.

Argentina vs Poland Prediction

The South American side look in better shape prior to this match, with Lionel Messi trying to kick his side properly into gear after a slow start. Poland have a relatively strong defence, but not one with the capacity to hold back the free-flowing creativity of the Argentine front line. A narrow win for Argentina.

Current Odds: Argentina vs Poland

Argentina are favourites at 2/5, with a Poland victory at 8/1.
