France and Poland face off in the World Cup Round of 16 soccer showdown at Al Thumama Stadium. 

France finished in first place in Group D picking up six points. France opened up the World Cup with a 4-1 victory over Australia. In the second game, they also knocked off Denmark 2-1, but in the last game against Tunisia, they were defeated 1-0. France had 66 percent of the possession and three shots on target, but they gave up the one goal and ended up losing. Theo Hernandez suffered an ankle injury in training, but it’s expected that he’s going to be able to get the start in this game. Alphonse Areola is also healthy, and will be able to go in this game. In this game, France is going to push the numbers forward and put pressure on the defense of Poland. 

On the other side of this matchup is Poland who finished in second place in Group C picking up four points. Poland opened up the World Cup with a 0-0 draw against Mexico. In Game 2 against Saudi Arabia, they were able to secure a 2-0 victory, and that’s what put them through into the knockout stage. In the last game against Argentina, the offense couldn’t find the back of the net, and they lost 2-0. Poland had 26 percent of the possession and zero shots on target. Poland is healthy heading into this game, but they have some yellow card issues that could see some players suspended if they make it through this game. Karol Swiderski was pulled at halftime in the last game, but he’s expected to be able to play in this game. 

France is well rested heading into this game and their defense is going to lockdown in this game. Outside of Lewandowski, Poland doesn’t have a lot of attacking talent, and they are going to struggle to get past the France back line. France’s offense is going to put too much pressure on in this game and will find the back of the net a couple of times. Back France -1.5 to cash here.
