Having caused one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history with their 2-1 win against Argentina, Saudi Arabia face Poland knowing that another Group C victory will secure their place in the round of 16. The European side, who drew their opening game 0-0 with Mexico, are looking to reach the knockout phase for the first time since 1986.

A 4-1 victory over Australia has put France in command of Group D, and the defending champions will seal their berth in the knockout stage if they defeat a Denmark side held 0-0 by Tunisia. The teams drew 0-0 in the group stage at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, but Denmark have beaten Les Bleus twice this year in the UEFA Nations League (2-1 away, 2-0 at home).

Beaten by Saudi Arabia in their opening fixture, Argentina return to the Lusail Stadium, scene of their 2-1 defeat, hoping to extend their perfect record against Mexico at the finals to four wins in four meetings. The Concacaf side opened with a 0-0 draw against Poland, in which goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, playing in his fifth World Cup, saved a Robert Lewandowski penalty.
