France National Football Team
France secured the top spot in Group D with one game to spare. They rested key players in the last game against Tunisia, but the defeat had little impact. The Blues began their World Cup title defense in great fashion, thrashing Australia 4-1 in their first game. France made it two wins from two with the win against Denmark and was among the first teams to qualify for the knockouts. Didier Deschamps’ team would be looking to emulate their success at the 2018 World Cup.
Poland National Football Team
Poland didn’t have an easy path to the round of 16. They had to face México, Saudi Arabia, and Argentina in Group C. The Red and Whites finished level on points with Mexico but qualified with a better goal difference. They were great in their opening two games, picking up a draw against Mexico and getting all three points against an impressive Saudi Arabia team. Poland would’ve hoped for an easier fixture, but they would be looking to extend their stay in the competition after a long absence from the knockouts.
France vs Poland: H2H
Both teams have met just once in a competitive game. It was in the 1982 FIFA World Cup group stage, and Poland edged out a win in a five-goal thriller. Another clash was not so long ago but played as a friendly match.

France vs Poland Betting Tips and Predictions
Team Goals – Poland Over 0.5 @ 2.38 (11/8)
Poland beat the odds to finish in the top two of FIFA World Cup’s Group C. They have been decent so far, and although they aren’t favorites against France, they can provide good competition for the world champions. Poland has scored two goals in this tournament and should have more, considering the number of chances they created throughout the group stage. Poland is averaging a goal per game in all competitions this year, and with Lewandowski leading the line, they can get on the scoresheet against France.
France has been poor defensively, with no clean sheets in three games at the FIFA World Cup 2022. The Blues has conceded three goals in this tournament in three games, and those teams have a weaker attack than Poland. France has kept just two clean sheets in eleven matches this year and has conceded eleven goals in that period. They might be great in attack, but their defense has been very unreliable, and the Polish side can get a goal in this fixture. Backing Poland to score is a good option in this game and is also available for live football bets.
Kylian Mbappe to Score Anytime @ 1.91 (10/11)
Kylian Mbappe is expected to start against Poland. With qualification already secured, he rested in the last game against Tunisia. The Paris Saint Germain forward is France’s highest goalscorer in this tournament with three goals and is the most likely outlet for goals. Backing him to get on the scoresheet is a very valuable goalscorer bet in this game, so don’t miss Kylian Mbappe’s odds which will likely increase your balance.
Correct Score 2-1 @ 9.00 (8/1)
France has always resorted to outscoring teams since they have been poor at the back. Poland is likely to get a goal against France, but the defending champions have a much better team with world-class players like Ousmane Dembele and Kylian Mbappe. Backing France to outscore Poland by 2-1 is worth a longshot bet in this fixture.
