Our prediction of Group C results

  1. Argentina
  2. Poland
  3. Mexico
  4. Saudi Arabia

Argentina is a clear favorite of Group C. And according to bookies’ odds, they are among the top 3 favorites to win the whole competition. They beat Brazil in the Copa America final which really helped to boost their self-confidence. On top of that, they won finallisima match of the current EURO and Copa America champions against Italy this year. They are on an amazing winning strike, as the last time they lost a competitive match was back in 2019.

Their team is not only about Messi, they also have a really balanced squad of experienced players (Otamendi, Tagliafico, Di Mária, Martínez) and we favor them to go really deep in World Cup 2022.

Poland, led by Lewandowski and Zielinski, will fight with Mexico for the second spot in Group C. Mexico’s team lacks stars that could decide matches and we see Poland at the second spot rather than them. According to bookies odds, Saudi Arabia is one of the weakest teams in the tournament and we could consider them to be “whipping boys”. So targeting players (Messi, Lewandowski) playing against them could be an interesting fantasy strategy.
