Poland vs. Saudi Arabia, France vs. Denmark, Argentina vs. Mexico

Can Argentina recover after its shocking loss in the 2022 World Cup against Saudi Arabia?

There are plenty of reasons to think this is possible. Argentina are still favored to win Group C and were dominant in the first half as a side scored two goals with just two shots on goal. This does not happen often.

Mexico, meanwhile, needed the spark to draw with Poland. Another such performance will not work against Argentina on Saturday.

Poland versus Saudi Arabia

8 a.m. ET Sat., FS1

Yes, Poland is still better off winning money than even Saudi Arabia even after the Saudis’ surprising victory over Argentina. We are intrigued to see how Saudi Arabia defends Poland, and if it’s similar to the high wire move it pulled off its success against Argentina. We go with Poland here because they know they have to get the three points heading into a match against Argentina to finish the group stage.

France versus Denmark

11 a.m. ET Sat., Fox

France is favored due to its convincing victory over Australia, but keep in mind that this Danish team has beaten France in the last two meetings. Denmark has a lot more defensive talent than Australia and they should be very well organized in defence. We wonder if a tie is the right game here, although Denmark would like to avoid having to rely on France and Tunisia’s result to advance.

Argentina vs Mexico

2 p.m. ET Saturday, Fox

Mexico’s victory over Argentina would be one of the most stunning events in modern World Cup history. We’re not sure that will happen. This must be a very motivated Argentinian team who put themselves in second place or just a point off first place with a win.
