The 2022 FIFA World Cup is still ongoing, and we are going into the second round, but getting Qatar 2022 predictions right has been challenging.
There are eight groups in the tournament, consisting of 32 teams. Two top teams in every team will advance to the round of 16 before the quarter-final, semi-final, final, and third place.
Some groups have completed their first games. We can see some teams at the top of their group standings.
Although there are still two matches left for them, so we can’t decide who will move out as the top two teams in their groups.
Also, the England team is already sitting at the top of Group B after earning three points when they faced Iran on Monday.
Wales and USA share the same point after playing 1-1 when they met, and Iran sits in the fourth position. On the other hand, Saudi Arabia is sitting at the top in the Group C standings after beating the Argentina team in a surprising 1-2 win.
At the same time, Mexico and Poland shared one point after they played draw when they met, leaving Argentina in the fourth position.
We will look at two teams in the World Cup tournament in Qatar, aiming to make it out of Group C, as two matches are left. Check out our Poland vs Saudi Arabia game prediction below.

Saudi Arabia’s Odds Breakdown

Poland vs. Saudi Arabia Betting Analysis
Both teams have yet to play each other before, so it will be a tricky game for Saudi Arabia against Poland because they are challenging.
Therefore, getting three points will help both teams move closer to the qualification of the next stage. Every team’s dream is to win the FIFA World cup, so three points in this game will put them in a good position.
The Saudi Arabia team has not done much at the World Cup since they have been participating. Saudi Arabia’s only best performance was when they reached the round of 16, which was in 1994 when they got defeated by the Sweden team by a 1-3 scoreline.
So, now is another opportunity for them to repeat history. They need to do better to qualify for the next stage, which won’t be as easy as we think.
On the other hand, Poland has been one of the best since they started participating in the World Cup. They appeared on nine different occasions and finished third in 1974 and 1982.
They can also repeat what they have done in the past, but first, they need to earn three points against Saudi Arabia.
Before the World Cup started, Poland played a friendly game with Chile’s national team, and some of their best players were not in the match.
Chile had more possession over the Poland team, but they won the game after Krzysztof Piatek scored.
They have the players like Robert Lewandowski and Matty Cash, who are part of the key players for the team.
They have a good squad and the chance to advance to the next stage if they can play as a team and seriously take the two matches left in their group-stage fixtures. We expect Poland score prediction to be the most popular for this tie.
Saudi Arabia Analysis
The match is not in favor of Saudi Arabia. They have two players that are already the goalscorer of the tournament, and they have earned three points in their standings.
If they can play a draw against Poland and win their next match after that, 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 that will lead the team in the next match.
It is a match we expect the team to push for as they increase their chances of winning this game following their incredible win against Argentina.
Poland vs. Saudi Arabia Pick and Prediction
Poland and Saudi Arabia are going for the three points. However, one can only win or draw this game, and we believe Poland can win. They need three points more than Saudi Arabia.
In that case, we will support Poland to win as they are set for their first win of the tournament. Below is Poland vs Saudi Arabia game prediction and pick for this tie.
