ON SAUD NINE SAUDI ARABIA are looking to book their spot in the World Cup 2022 last 16.

Herve Renard’s side left the football world in a state of shock after beating one of the tournament favourites, Argentina, in their opening game
But they face another tricky test in their quest for knockout round place.

Saudi Arabia take on Poland in their second match.

And they’ll be fighting tooth and nail to secure another surprise win that will see them qualify.

Domoredosport takes a look at what to expect from the big game… including the all-important scoreline prediction.

How are they getting on?
Poland: Not brilliantly, to be honest.

Superstar striker Robert Lewandowski missed a penalty as they laboured to a 0-0 draw against Mexico.

And with Argentina still to come, they’ll need a win here.

Saudi Arabia: They’re on cloud nine, right now, after one of the greatest results in World Cup history.

Trailing 1-0, Saudi Arabia recovered to beat Lionel Messi and Co 2-1.

A point in this match could even end up being enough to reach the last 16.

Any injuries to worry about?
Poland: Nothing major to worry about for Czeslaw Michniewicz.

However, Kamil Glik did take two heavy blows to the head against Mexico and will be monitored in the build-up to the game.

Saudi Arabia: Yasser Al-Shahrani will miss the game after a sickening blow to the face against Argentina.

Al-Shahrani required surgery after leaving on a stretcher having collided with his own goalkeeper, Mohammed Al-Owais.

Who will be the star men?
Poland: Robert Lewandowski, it has to be.

Missed penalty or not, the Barcelona star is comfortably one of the best strikers on the planet – one off day won’t change that.

Saudi Arabia: Salem Al-Dawsari has long been his nation’s talisman.

He scored the winner against Argentina and will be looking to add to his tally in this one
What’s the head-to-head?
The two nations have faced off four times – all in friendly games.

Poland have won all four, most-recently bagging a 2-1 victory in 2006.
