Argentina vs Poland: Messi or Lewandowski

Poland and Argentina must fight in a life-and-death match to choose a representative to continue in the 1/8 round of the 2022 World Cup. 

Comments on the match Poland vs Argentina

Poland currently has 4 points and leads Group C while Argentina has only 3 points, ranked 2nd in this group.

Therefore, the match between the two teams is both to determine the first place and to determine the ticket to go on.

Because Saudi Arabia also has 3 points (ranked 3rd due to poor sub-index), Poland and Argentina cannot lose if they want to decide their own fate.

Poland only needs 1 point or more and Argentina must win to seize its destiny.


In terms of strength and class, Argentina outperformed the opponent, but when the South American representative was not really hot, Poland showed the ability to organize a tight game.

Therefore, Argentina is expected to face many difficulties when confronting Poland, especially when the opponent does not need to win.
