The Middle Eastern side rode their luck in the first half of their opening match and could be punished early on this weekend

Poland and Saudi Arabia meet on Saturday afternoon in a clash which could leave Group C wide open heading into the final round of fixtures.

Their historic victory over Argentina on Tuesday has put Herve Renard's men in a strong position to qualify and avoiding defeat this weekend would leave them very close to the last-16.

Poland meanwhile drew 0-0 with Mexico in their opening match meaning a win for them would also reignite their hopes of making the knockout stages.

Poland vs Saudi Arabia latest odds

Despite their exceptional comeback against Argentina, Saudi Arabia remain clear outsiders against the European nation with bet365 offering them at 4/1 (5.00) to record another win.

Poland meanwhile are priced at 7/10 (1.70) while the draw is available at 13/5 (3.60).

Poland vs Saudi Arabia first goal scorer odds

Robert Lewandowski missed a penalty against Mexico last time out and the Barcelona striker is still waiting to score his first World Cup goal.

Nevertheless, the 35-year-old remains the overwhelming favourite to break the deadlock at 3/1 (4.00) with his fellow striker Arkadiusz Milik who came off the bench late on in the first game offered at 11/2 (6.50).

Salah Al-Shehri scored the equaliser against Argentina and is priced at 10/11 (11.00) while the matchwinner Salem Al-Dawsari is offered at 14/1 (15.00).

Poland vs Saudi Arabia preview

Saudi Arabia rode their luck against Argentina and on another day, they would have found themselves trailing 3-0 at half time.

The spirit shown by Herve Renard's side in the second half was hugely impressive, yet in terms of quality Poland boast a superior team who should be able to impose themselves on the game.

Lewandowski is likely to cause the Saudi defence plenty of problems as Lautaro Martinez did in the first half of Tuesday's game and perhaps the best value bet for the European nation is backing them to score in the opening 45 minutes.

Poland vs Saudi Arabia tips and predictions

A first half goal for Poland can be backed at 5/6 (1.83) which looks like an interesting option, while the side are available at 2/1 (3.00) to score in both halves.
