With the important 2-0 victory over Mexico, corresponding to the second day of Group C of the World Cup in Qatar 2022, the Argentine National Team managed to recover from a bad start and put all its focus on its next rival: Poland .
According to the schedule, the Albiceleste and Poland will face each other next Wednesday, November 30 at Stadium 974. This match will be fundamental for the Argentine team, which with a victory could close its classification as first group.
The team led by Lionel Scaloni, who came from a surprise loss in their debut against Saudi Arabia, knows that the game against the European team will not be easy, especially knowing that they arrive as leaders after a great victory against the Asians.
The record between the two shows that they met in a total of 11 opportunities: six wins for Argentina, three for the Europeans and only two draws. The last World Cup match was in 1978, when the South Americans won 2-0.
Unlike Mexico, this will be a meeting between two teams that don’t know each other very well, mainly because the most recent meeting was a friendly in June 2011 that ended in a 2-1 victory for Poland in Warsaw.
As for figures, the clear Polish player to follow is Robert Lewandowski. The Barcelona striker comes from sentencing the victory against Saudi Arabia and with a great season at club level behind him, which includes a total of 18 goals in 19 games
