Mexico vs Poland Prediction & Pick

There's no denying that this is an important match in Group C. With Argentina expected to take the top spot, a win here by either Mexico or Poland could secure that coveted second spot. That may be hard to accomplish as these squads have been praised for an ability to keep opponents from scoring.

Poland is led by Robert Lewandowski, who earned the Best FIFA's Men's Player Award in 2020 as well as 2021. His goal-scoring skills rivals that of anyone in the world, but there is a lack of threats around him. On the other side, Mexico lacks a true star capable of taking over the game. A draw seems likely.

Final Score Prediction: Mexico: 1 | Poland: 1

Mexico vs Poland Best Bet

Both teams know how detrimental a loss on Tuesday would be, so it's safe to expect a conservative style of play on the pitch. Players will need to shake off a bit of rust as well. Each of Poland's last four matches have resulted in less than 3 goals scored, which makes backing the under the move here.

Bet: Under 2.5 Goals (-190)
