Poland take on Colombia later today in the second round of Group H fixtures. Since both teams lost their opening games, against Senegal and Japan respectively, it is really all to play for. Both need a victory, but a defeat for either side will spell the end of their 2018 World Cup journey. For the neutral supporters, hopefully it will be an absolutely thrilling game.

PREDICTION

Given the significance of this game, both teams will either go ultra-defensive or offensive. Personally, the former seems a more probable outcome and so this game is likely to finish 1-1 meaning that everything will rest on the results of the final Group H games. Robert Lewandowski, who was a figment of his usual self in the first match against Senegal will be looking to cement his mark in the tournament and so he is undoubtedly the player to watch in the game.
