The competition for a knock out place from Group C will probably be intimidating as pre-tournament favourtites Argentina is highly anticipated to top the table.
While the chance for Saudi Arabia to get out of this group seems very unlikely, the winner of Mexico-Poland clash will be in a favorable position, joining Argentina to advance into the round of 16.
Poland will look to make it into the knockout rounds for the first time since 1986, while Mexico will look to replicate their repeated success of reaching the round of 16 at least with a win in this tie.

Key Players to Watch Out for in Mexico vs Poland
Poland: Robert Lewandowski of Barcelona, one of the most well-known players at the competition, will spearhead the Polish attack and will be eager to make a mark in what could be his last World Cup.
The Polish captain did not find the back of the net in the last edition, but has been in the sensational form once again this season for his new club Barcelona. He should be key to Poland’s success in this tie and competition on the whole.
Mexico: Mexico’s attack will be spearheaded by Napoli star winger Hirving Lozano while his wing partner Alexis Vega is also in good form coming into the tournament.
The Mexican side have a weak defence compared to their frontline, and their hope will mostly rely upon how these two alongside striker Raul Jimenez fare in this tie.
Mexico vs Poland Dream11 Prediction:
Mexico has been a regular in the knockout stages of the World Cup for the last seven editions, reaching the Round of 16 on each occasion.
Despite the lack of talent compared to the rich Polish side, they have been far more experienced and calm at the biggest stages. That could work in their favor, but we predict this could be a close contest.
