The first round of group stage matches will see its end with Poland taking on Senegal in a Group H encounter at the Oktritie Arena on 19th June 2018. Given Poland’s strong lineup and form, it is likely to be a thrashing for Senegal. Group H is not expected to have any challenge for the two knockout spots as Colombia and Poland look to be the most fitting teams to qualify for the round of 16. It is the World Cup, however, and ruling out an upset is the biggest mistake one can ever make here. If Senegal does manage to stage an upset, it will certainly be one of the biggest ones. It will remain to be seen if Poland run riots against Senegal and open their 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign in style or will we get to see an upset in the last game of the first round of group stage games.
For the fans, it will certainly be about watching Robert Lewandowski at his ruthless best for his national side. Poland has been in some favor form having thrashed their opponents in the qualifiers and making it to the quarters of EURO, which has certainly made their fans hope for something special.

This is arguably their best shot at FIFA World Cup, and surely fans will be gutted to miss a single moment of action.

Poland’s most likely formation is going to be the conventional 4-4-2 with Lewandowski and Milik leading the attack. For Senegal, the Charismatic Sadio Mane will be the key if they are to upstage an upset. Here is a look at how the two sides may lineup for their first game at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Poland Probable XI
Fabianski (GK); Piczczek, Glik, Rybus, Pazdan; Grosicki, Krychowiak, Peszko, Góralski; Lewandowski, Milik
Senegal Probable XI
N’Diaye (GK); Gassama, Koulibaly, Mbodji, Djilobodji; Kouyate, Saivet, N’Doye; Mane, Diouf, Moussa Sow

As for the result is concerned, it is 90% likely to be in Poland’s favour. Senegal does have a chance but for that they’ll have to play out of their skin and come up with something sensational. The likes of Sadio Mane and captain Kouyate will have to step up and show their mettle if they are to get something for their side out of this one. Though Lewandowski looks to be the only big name, Poland have performed exceptionally well as a unit and will be a potent threat in all three parts of the field. The final scoreline as we see looks like Poland 3-1 Senegal.
