The second weekend of the 2018 FIFA World Cup concludes with a huge game in Group H as Poland and Colombia meet. Both sides are outside of the qualifying positions after losing their opening matches.
These two big footballing nations have met on four occasions but never in an international tournament. Poland have beaten Colombia twice in those fixtures, back in 1980 and 1985. In the two friendlies since Colombia have won both including the most recent meeting in 2006 in the build-up to the World Cup. Both teams have scored in three of the four and over 2.5 goals were scored in all three.
Poland will need to be much stronger at the back for this one as Colombia will pose more of an attacking threat. Kamil Glik may come back into the defence but is still a doubt with the shoulder injury he picked up. Latest matches: Poland

The only guaranteed absence for this match is Sanchez, who is suspended after his red card. Rodriguez should slip straight into the starting XI as it is a must-win fixture and Luis Muriel is expected to line-up alongside Falcao in attack.

With both sides heading into this World Cup as favourites to make the knockout stage, it’s a huge shock to see neither team with any points after their first fixture. It’s incredibly hard to split the two and a draw seems to be the most likely outcome which would keep both of their hopes alive. A win for either side would eliminate the losing side which is why it’s expected to be a cagey affair, it could quite easily be the first goalless game of the World Cup.
