Mexico take on the visitors Poland in the group stage round 1 match of FIFA World Cup. The match will be played on Tuesday, November 23rd at Stadium 974 (Doha).
Mexico has the right to call itself a regular football player of this level. In 1990, they missed the tournament due to disqualification. But after that, not a single world championship took place without El Tri. Moreover, they without fail, with any regulations and number of participants, advanced from the group only in order to then just as stubbornly fly out already at the 1/8-finals stage. And, of course, now they want to break the 2nd trend. The Mexicans passed the qualification as confidently as possible - and with whom to compete there? Although we note that this time sensational Canada took the 1st place in CONCACAF. But it does nothing by itself. The composition of “Tata” Martino is experienced, and frankly aged. There is not a single player under the age of 24. And for Ochoa, Guardado, and 34-year-old Hector Moreno, this is, with great probability, the last trip to big tournament.

Poland looked good at Euro 2016. There it was passed in the quarterfinals by Portugal, the future winner of the tournament, the Portuguese were able to win only in the penalty shootout. By and large, neither before nor after that, Lewandowski and his generation did not really declare themselves. The return to the World Championship in 2018, after a long pause, turned out to be disappointing: 1 victory and elimination after the group. It was the same in the summer of last year, already at the Euro. And for this world championship, the Poles qualified only through playoff mathxed. Cheslav Mikhnevich has a fairly qualified squad. This is, first of all, Lewi, which shows excellent performance even after moving to Barcelona. But not only him: Szczesny in goal, Bednarek, Glick, Cash, Zeliński, Milik, Pentek are all players with extensive experience playing in the top championships, and the list goes on.
The only official match was in the 1978 World Cup, which was won by Poland 3-1. In this century there were friendly matches three times: 2 draws and a victory for Mexico. Bookmakers believe that the pair is equal in potential, even the Mexicans are given a slight advantage. But the composition of the Poles looks more convincing, and Lewandowski is still better than Lozano. We bet on the Poles with the handicap "0".
Prediction for the match: Poland to win with 0.0 handicap.
