Group H provided two shock results on matchday one, with the two sides widely regarded as strongest, Poland and Colombia, beaten by Senegal and Japan respectively. That changes the outlook completely and it is now hard to see both of the losers making up the ground and finishing in the top two to secure a place in the second round.

However, Poland and Colombia have a chance to put themselves back in the mix when they face each other on Sunday at the Kazan Arena. Pre-tournament predictions pointed towards these teams being the best prepared in the group to make an impact at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, but a defeat for either this weekend could see them eliminated, depending on the result between Japan and Senegal.



Colombia’s defeat to Japan was a major surprise, though the early red card to Carlos Sanchez – which was also punished with a converted penalty – made things much harder. Regardless, José Pékerman’s stars Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez looked below par and a major improvement will be required on Sunday night.

Indeed, both teams have the potential to score goals, so Tipbet’s generous offer at 1.85 is worth backing with Robert Lewandowski likely to play a pivotal role for Poland despite being relatively anonymous against Senegal.

Poland, at 3.40, of course have the quality to get the win themselves, though it is looking as if Group H will be decided on matchday three, with all teams in action on 28th June.
