The 22nd match of the 2022 Qatar World Cup will see UEFA nation Poland take on Middle Eastern representatives Saudi Arabia.

It’s also the second match to take place on November 26th, while it’s scheduled to kick-off at 4pm local time at the Education City Stadium.

The Saudis stunned the entire world in their WC opener, beating second favourites Argentina 2-1 to end the side’s 35-match unbeaten run. So, they’ll be looking to potentially seal a last 16 place with another victory here, against a Poland side that looked laboured an uninspired during their 0-0 draw with Mexico.

🏠 Poland World Cup News

Poland is currently ranked 26th in the world by FIFA, with the same rankings establishing them as the 15th best European side. This is considerably higher than their matchday rivals Saudi Arabia, who are currently ranked 53rd in the world and largely expected to exit the tournament at the group stage. However, despite Poland’s strong finish during UEFA World Cup qualification (they won five and lost just one of their final seven matches), the nation has endured inconsistent form during the most recent summer.

In fact, they won only one of four UEFA Nations League matches in June, with this run including a 6-1 thrashing at the hands of Belgium in Brussels.

They then toiled in the Qatar heat during their stalemate with Mexico, with talisman Robert Lewandowski missing a penalty as his wait for a first WC finals’ goal continues.

🏆 Poland World Cup History

Poland has appeared in eight previous World Cups, having initially made their debut in 1938. Here, they exited in the first round, losing 6-5 in a stunning clash against Brazil in Strasbourg.

The country wasn’t able to qualify again until 1974, at which point Poland was considered to be one of the strongest teams in Europe. Boasting star players like Grzegorz Lato and Andrzej Szarmach, Poland won six of their seven matches during the tournament, eventually sealing third place after a decisive 1-0 defeat to West Germany in the second group stage.

Poland performed similarly in 1978, while the country secured another third-place finish in 1982. This marked the end of the nation’s so-called “golden generation”, however, with a round of 16 exit in 1986 (when Poland scored just a single goal in four matches) followed by three consecutive finals for which they failed to qualify at all.

This run was halted in Japan and South Korea in 2002, since which Poland have qualified for three of the five finals hosted. However, they’ve failed to progress beyond the group stage on each occasion, winning just three of nine finals’ matches and scoring just six goals.

✔️ Poland Qualification and Road to the World Cup 2022

Despite a challenging qualifying draw in UEFA Group I (which also featured England, Albania and a fast-improving Hungary side), Poland managed to win six of their 10 matches in total and were beaten only twice.

This secured second place just two points ahead of Albania, while England topped the group with an impressive eight-point cushion.

This saw Poland enter Play-Off Path A, where they initially received a bye into the final following the disqualification of Russia. Then, the side beat Sweden 2-0 in Chorzów to book their place in the Middle East this winter.

⭐ Poland Players to Watch

Most of the Polish players are relatively well-known, as they play in some of Europe’s best leagues. The team at Betinireland has also picked out three that you should keep your eyes on!

  • Robert Lewandowski: There’s a great deal on the shoulders of Robert Lewandowski, who despite having yet to open his World Cup finals’ account, remains firmly established as Poland’s captain, talisman and record goal scorer. This predatory finisher has 76 goals in 135 international games, while his club career has also yielded a staggering 558 goals in just 765 appearances, including 344 in 375 games for Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich. Since Barcelona on a free transfer this summer, Lewandowski has made a total of 19 appearances across all competitions and scored 18 times already.
  • Nicola Zalewski: While Roma’s creative midfielder Nicola Zalewski has only earned eight caps since his debut in September 2021, he’s already emerged as one of the most coveted young stars in Europe. Blessed with excellent close control and superb passing, he adds some much-needed creativity to Poland’s workman-like side, and he’s likely to start the group stage matches during the WC. While he has yet to score to his nation, he provided an excellent assist to Adam Buska for the seventh goals in the 7-1 thrashing of Marino.
  • Arkadiusz Milik: The experienced Arkadiusz Milik is another key player in the Poland squad, and one who is in the midst of his physical peak at the age of 28. Dynamic and full of running, he has struck 16 goals in 62 international caps to date, including the third in a 4-1 win over Andorra during WC qualifying. Milik also has an excellent strike rate over the course of his club career, with the Juventus striker plundering 139 goals in 322 appearances. He currently plays on loan at Serie A club Juventus. He didn’t start against Mexico, but will be chomping at the bit to make his mark against the Saudis.

✈️ Saudi Arabia World Cup News

As we’ve already touched on, the Saudis arrived in Qatar ranked 53rd in the world, while the same listings rank them as the sixth-best AFC side. However, they qualified for Qatar in impressive fashion, losing just one of their 18 matches across the second and third rounds and securing an automatic place ahead of Japan and Australia (both of these sides are currently ranked higher than Saudi Arabia).

Despite some impressive performances in WC qualification, however, the Saudis have only won two of their last nine competitive matches prior to the finals, losing to Jordan (1-0) and Morocco A’ (1-0) during the 2021 Arab Cup group stage in the process.

Subsequent friendly defeats to Colombia and Venezuela in Spain will have also raised concerns ahead of the finals, with neither having qualified for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. However, the side were full of running, intensity and belief when they defeated Argentina in one of the great WC upsets, and will take on Poland in a genuinely positive and confident state of mind.

🏆 Saudi Arabia World Cup History

The Saudis are making their sixth WC finals’ appearance in Qatar, with each of these having come during the last eight tournaments dating back to 1994. Prior to this, they failed to enter at all until 1978, while they weren’t able to achieve qualification until a memorable tournament in the US 16 years later. Here, the Saudis won two of the four matches and qualified for the round of 16 at the first attempt, with Saeed Al-Owairan’s spectacular solo goal in a 1-0 victory over Belgium providing an obvious highlight. While Saudi Arabia qualified for the next three World Cups too, they lost all nine of their matches and shipped a disappointing 26 goals (including an infamous 8-0 defeat to Germany in 2002).

A two-tournament hiatus followed in 2010 and 2014, but the Saudis finally return in Russia four years ago. While they went out in the group stage once again, they did manage to win their first WC match (2-1 against Egypt) since 1994, and have since followed this up with their superb win against Argentina.

✔️ Saudi Arabia Qualification and Road to the World Cup 2022

Seventh-ranked Saudi Arabia received a bye to the second round of AFC qualifying, during which they topped Group B while winning six (and drawing two) of their eight matches.

This saw them progress to Group B in the third round, where the Saudis faced a tough challenge to qualify ahead of Japan and Australia.

However, they upset the odds winning seven and losing just one of their 10 qualifying matches, beating both Japan and Australia at home to secure top spot by a single point.

⭐ Saudi Arabia Players to Watch

The chances are that you won’t know too many Saudi Arabia players, even after their stunning victory over Argentina. However, our team has managed to identify three standout performers below, while asking what sets them apart from their peers!

  • Salem Al-Dawsari: There's a noticeable lack of goals in the Saudi side, with the top scorer in their most recent squad being the experienced midfielder Salem Al-Dawsari (who scored a spectacular winner against Argentina in match one). The talented 31-year-old has won 65 caps so far and scored 17 goals, including an impressive seven in 18 AFC qualification games for the 2022 World Cup. Al-Dawsari also enjoyed a career best goalscoring season for Al-Sadd in 2021/22, hitting the net 18 times in 36 appearances at a rate of a goal every two matches. So, he’ll be confident of completing his rich vein of form as the tournament continues.
  • Fahad Al-Muwallad: While Fahad Al-Muwallad may have been in and out of the Saudi squad of late, he offers another prominent goal threat in his role as winger or wide forward. To date, he has made 74 appearances in the Saudi Arabia front line and scored 17 goals for his country, including four in 11 appearances in 2021. What’s more, the talented forward has 81 goals in 254 club career appearance, so the Saudis will want to ensure that he’s fit and available for the group stage.
  • Saleh Al-Shehri: Al-Shehri scored the equaliser against Argentina, powering past Spurs’ defender Christian Romero before striking low into the bottom right-hand corner. This highlighted the striker’s predatory instincts, while adding to an already impressive strike rate of 11 goals in just 21 international appearances to date. The 28-year-old plundered seven of these during World Cup qualifying, (including two in a 5-0 thrashing of Palestine), while he also had 45 club career goals to his name is 165 appearances in total so far.

🥇 Poland vs Saudi Arabia Prediction - Who Will Win?

Prior to the opening WC fixtures, this may have seemed like an easy game to call, but Saudi Arabia showcased impressive defensive qualities and no little attacking threat (alongside some incredible intensity) during their win against Argentina.

Conversely, Poland looked unambitious and lethargic against an energetic Mexican side, while the Poles’ lack of attacking threat is strange considering they have one of the world’s best strikers leading the lines.

Ultimately, the Saudis have the momentum heading into this game, while their familiarity with the Middle East’s heat and humidity should mean that they’ll be ready to go again at the Education City Stadium on November 26th.

So, we’re backing them to spring another surprise here (in the bookies eyes at least), and potentially seal an unexpected space in the last 16 of the tournament.

🔍 Our Poland vs Saudi Arabia Betting Tips?

Despite the opening round of fixtures and our prediction, Poland remain heavy favourites to beat the Saudis, so their short price isn’t necessarily conducive to straight match betting. However, you’ll find immense value in backing the Saudis to win again, particularly at a current price of 4.80 with Ladbrokes.

Regardless of which team wins, however, we don’t think that there will be a significant number goals in the game, so you may also want to back there being under 2.5 goals scored in total at a price of 1.75 with BetVictor.

We’d also avoid backing both sides to score, especially when consider the relatively compact nature of the Polish defence and the Saudi’s lack of a consistent, potent goal scorer.
