Mexico Stats & Form
Mexico is an opponent that no team wants to face in the group stage since they are a die-hard team that gives more than 100% in every game.
There is no superstar in this roster but the team spirit and the readiness to die on the pitch is what makes Mexico an outstanding team.
Mexico finished second in the CONCACAF qualifiers with 28 points, as many as the leader Canada. They had only 2 losses in 14 qualifying games.
Mexico has only 4 wins in the last 10 games and all of those have come against teams that are on a much lower level than them.
Mexico has not missed a World Cup since 1994. In the last 7 World Cups they have passed the group stage but have failed in the first elimination game. In 2018 in Russia they lost 2-0 to Brazil in the round of 16.
Poland Stats & Form
Poland failed to meet the expectations of the nation at the last World Cup and now in Qatar will have a chance for redemption.
Robert Lewandowski is still one of the top goal scorers in the world and he will definitely be a threat to every opponent.
Poland finished second in Group I of the European qualifiers with 20 points, 6 less than England. In the Playoffs, Poland first went over Russia who was disqualified and then defeated Sweden 2-0 in the decisive match that booked their ticket for Qatar.
Poland has 5 wins in their last 10 games but has not played well recently. They have only one win in the last 4 games in the Nations League losing 6-1 to Belgium on the road and 1-0 on the home field.
This will be the ninth World Cup for Poland, a nation that had much success early on. They finished in third place twice, back in 1974 and 1982. They finished in 25th place in 2018 in Russia being eliminated in the group stage of the tournament.

Mexico vs. Poland Betting Odds
Poland is a slight favorite going into this game with the odds at 160 in their favor while Mexico is at 187. The draw is set at 212.
The total goals margin is set at 2.5 with 124 for over and 169 for under.
Given the odds, Poland is a slight favorite going into this game. Knowing how good and aggressive the Mexicans are, they will at least have an equal chance of winning this game. Despite the fact that Mexico has not made any significant success in the World Cups, they have been one of the most consistent teams who regularly find their way to the knockout phase. This generation of Mexico is definitely capable of reaching the second round and in order to do that they will need to win at least a point in this game which they will eventually do. Robert Lewandowski is one of the best strikers in the world but he will not be able to beat Mexico by himself.
