Otkrytie Arena – Moscow – Russia
One of the top 2018 FIFA World Cup contenders, Poland, face strong African team, Senegal, in opening Group H action in the Russian capital. Playing in Russia will very similar to a home match for the classy Poles.
The two teams have never previously met in a full international.
If you’re looking for an outsider to win the World Cup (currently at odds of $41.00), you could do worse than Poland. With a FIFA World Raking as high as Number 10 recently, any side that has Robert Lewandowski on hand to bang in the goals on a frequent and regular basis must be taken seriously and considered a legitimate title threat.
A nation famous for conquering the then reigning World Cup champions France at the 2002 World Cup in Korea and Japan has a rich football heritage with numerous quality players plying their trade in national leagues all over Europe.
Coach Allou Cisse has a talented unit at his disposal with M’Baye Niang of Torino, Keita Baldé of Monaco and Liverpool’s Sadio Mané allowing Cissé to play an aggressive 4-3-3, with Sakho sitting just behind the front three. Not the worst side at Russia 2018 by any means
Preview & Predictions
Poland offer great value at $2.05 for the win and realistically may start shorter than those odds by kick-off time. I’d take that excellent price ASAP.
Other great options abound in this Group H clash and most of the them are predicated on Robert Lewandowski bagging the ball in the back of the net. Try Poland to score 2.5 goals or more at $2.30.

- Poland’s Lewandowski to be Top Goalscorer of the Tournament – $29.00
- Senegal to reach a Quarter Final – $6.50
