Preview: Argentina vs. Poland - Prediction, Team News, Lineups

Lionel Messi and La Albiceleste will encounter Robert Lewandowski and Poland in their final group-stage game of the World Cup on Wednesday.

Where: Stadium 974
When: Wednesday, November 30, 10 pm (19:00 GMT)
Fifa rankings:  Argentina (3), Poland (26)
Here is the prediction information and lineups of Argentina vs. Poland.

Match Preview

Currently, Poland is at the top of the group, followed by Argentina Saudi Arabia, and Mexico. A win for either Poland or Argentina would secure a spot in the knockout stage. A draw or a loss will mess everything up. Poland needs only a draw, while Argentina needs a win to decide their fate themself. However, if La Albiceleste draws or loses the match against Poland, their fate will rely on the result of the match between Saudi Arabia and Mexico, in which the Asian team must be defeated by losing goals beyond Argentina's.
Their inability to deal with the pressure was best evidenced by midfielder Rodrigo de Paul, who was likely unable to efficiently operate the attack. Argentina's confidence seems to fly away after the shocking defeat against Saudi Arabia and a win over Mexico is not enough to make their supporters pleased. Because we can say that only Messi's moment saved that game.
While Robert Lewandowski scored his first World Cup goal, Poland's victory would be impossible for Wojciech Szczęsny. The Juventus goalkeeper still defies the rising attack of Saudi Arabia.  And he is the only goalkeeper to have kept two clean sheets in this World Cup tournament so far. Messi and Co have to do their best to take down Poland.

As for Argentina, Scaloni could tinker with his starting lineup once again, with alterations hoped in defense and midfield in particular.
Lisandro Martinez could keep his place at center-back alongside Nicolas Otamendi, but the full-back spots are up for grabs, with Gonzalo MontielNahuel Molina, and Juan Foyth all battling for a spot at right-back, while one of Nicolas Tagliafico or Marcos Acuna is considered to start the nod at left-back.
Lautaro Martinez and Angel Di Maria are the 2 most likely candidates to restart in attack with Messi, but Julian Alvarez and Paulo Dybala will both be expecting to force their way into the first XI.

Grzegorz Krychowiak, who is just four appearances away from obtaining his 100th international cap, could be entered in center-midfield by seven-cap Birmingham City man Krystian Bielik, while Zielinski and Przemyslaw Frankowski are set to operate on the flanks.
