Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
Following a goalless draw with Mexico, Poland will look to climb to top position in Group C when they take on Saudi Arabia at Education City Stadium. Despite failing to convert a penalty in the opener, a man to watch in the home team will be Robert Lewandowski, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition back-line. There are no fresh injury concerns in Czeslaw Michniewicz’s team, but Juventus forward Arkadiusz Milik could sneak into the starting XI.
Herve Renard’s men, on the other hand, recorded the biggest win in the national team’s history, with the team coming from behind to beat star-studded Argentina 2-1. Saudi Arabia are high on spirits ahead of Saturday’s clash, but we do not believe that they are capable of claiming yet another major scalp at the 2022 World Cup finals. Yasir Al-Shahrani is sidelined with injury for the Arabian Falcons.
Highlighted Player (Robert Lewandowski):
After scoring 36 goals in 59 league games for Znicz Pruskow, Robert Lewandowski joined Lech Poznan in June, 2008. The 184-cm-tall attacker scored 18 goals in 28 appearances for the club in the 2009/2010 Ekstraklasa campaign and during the season he was on Borussia Dortmund’s radar.
The Polish forward signed a four-year deal with the Bundesliga side in June, 2010 and he quickly established himself as the team’s key attacker. Lewandowski was producing excellent performances with the Millionaires between 2010 and 2014 and it has to be noted that he won two Bundesliga trophies with the club (2010/2011, 2011/2012). He participated in the 2012/2013 Champions League final with Borussia Dortmund, but the Millionaires were beaten by fellow Bundesliga side Bayern Munich in the title game.
However, he betrayed Borussia Dortmund fans in 2014 as he signed a four-year deal with the Bundesliga giants. Lewandowski impressed in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign as he scored 30 goals in 32 league games for Pep Guardiola’s troops. The Polish footballer represented his homeland at Euro 2016 in France and he scored one goal at the showpiece tournament in France.
