A look ahead at Poland vs Senegal #POL #SEN

Tomorrow's Group H showdown between Poland and Senegal features 2 teams whose strength lies in their attack. Both teams stand a lot to prove. Poland are a strong team that has failed to produce in World Cup qualifying matches. Senegal are looking to make this World Cup as remember-able as their 2002 trip in which they advanced to the quarter finals. 

Polish forward Robert Lewandowski is absolutely on fire. Lewandowski has scored 16 goals in 10 matches for his country. He's also coming off a Bundesliga season where he was top scorer, netting 29 league goals and 41 in all competitions for Bayern Munich. 

Tomorrow's match results will be dependent on the performance of Sadio Mane and Robert Lewandowski.

Senegal also has goal scoring power in Sadio Mane. The Senegalese forward is coming off an incredible season of his own, scoring 20 goals in all competitions for Premier League side Liverpool. He was also a pivotal piece in Liverpool's 2017-18 Champions League run. 

Poland's liability is its defense. The team recorded only 2 clean sheets in World Cup Qualifying, and Monaco Center Back Kamil Glik is coming off a pre-tournament injury. To stop Mane and the Senegal attack will be a worthy opponent for the Poles, who are favorited to top the group. To do so, 3 points is vital here.

Senegal will more than likely play a fast, physical game, and will create chances early on, but expect Poland to settle into its rhythm and control the match.
