World Cup: Mexico vs. Poland odds, picks and predictions


El Tri is seeking to make a splash with a new crop of talents as Mexico returns to the World Cup. In particular, Edson Alvarez and Hirving Lozano are players to keep an eye on as they try to establish themselves on the international stage.

As the most well-known player from Poland, Robert Lewandowski will be of particular interest to Mexico, although Piotr Zielinski is also a talent on the rise.

The FIFA world rankings place Mexico at No. 9 and Poland at No. 24.

Since Saudi Arabia isn’t anticipated to pose much of a threat, these 2 teams will likely be vying for position behind Argentina for the crucial second-place slot in Group C in an effort to go through the group stage.

Both teams are playing in a crucial early match, thus neither is anticipated to take any needless risks. Expect Mexico and Poland to both play it cautiously and earn a pleasing to kick off their World Cup 2022 campaigns.

Despite being fairly costly, Under 3.5 will be profitable.

In an effort to prevent the dangerous Lewandowski from scoring his first World Cup goal, Mexico will aim to play keep-away against Poland. El Tri prefers to hold onto the ball and isn’t very motivated to pick up the pace. This is a good defensive team, but the attack isn’t exactly explosive.

Trying to take control will likely frustrate Poland. In their most recent match, Poland defeated Chile 1-0 on November 16 in an international friendly. And throughout all competitions, Poland has played four straight games with under 2.5 goals.

For what it’s worth, Under 3.5 goals has won each of the three previous games between Mexico and Poland.
