Poland are coming into this tournament with one of the best, if not the best, striker in the world in Robert Lewandowski. They will look to qualify from this group even as one of the best 3rd-placed teams, but the presence of Slovakia and Sweden, along with Spain, is quite promising for their qualifying chances.
Slovakia are the big underdogs in this group, but this will probably their easiest chance to get some points and hope for the best.
Poland easily cruised through the EURO 2020 Qualifiers with 8 wins, 1 loss and 1 draw in the group, finishing at the top with 25 points, scoring 18 and conceding 5 goals.
It was a tricky group, but lacked a big name, as the other teams were Austria, North Macedonia, Slovenia, Israel and Latvia.
They did not have such an easy time in the Nations League though, where they only beat Bosnia & Herzegovina (twice) on their way to the 3rd spot of the group that also featured Italy, the Netherlands and Bosnia & Herzegovina.
Poland did a solid job in their most recent competitive matches for the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers. They came back from two goals behind to force a 3-3 draw against Hungary and then beat Andorra by an easy 3-0.
However, they lost to England by 2-1, but they were missing Lewandowski in that match.
Slovakia were in a really tight group in the EURO Qualifiers, where 4 of the 5 teams fought for the 2 top spots till the final match-day.
However, Slovakia finished at the 3rd spot of the group with 13 points (4 wins, 3 losses, 1 draw) and did not get a ticket to the EURO Group Stage.
However, they managed to get a wild-card for the EUROs through the UEFA Nations League, where they beat Ireland in the penalty shoot-out and Northern Ireland in the extra time.
But they did a bad job in the next Nations League, finishing at the bottom of a group that also featured the Czech Republic, Scotland and Israel, winning just 1 of their 6 matches.
Slovakia made a promising start in the 2022 World Cup Qualifiers with 1 win and 2 draws in their first three matches. Oddly enough, the draws were against Cyprus and Malta, but Slovakia managed to beat Russia by 2-1 and have increased their chances for a top-2 finish in that group.
Poland vs Slovakia Prediction:
Poland have been in mediocre shape lately, winning just 1 of their last 5 competitive matches (1 win, 3 losses, 1 draw) and had two draws in their friendlies prior to the EUROs. However, they have one of the best strikers in the world and they will have to make use of that.
Slovakia do not have a lot of talent in their squad, and it’s the 33-year-old ex-Napoli midfielder Marek Hamsik who will try to carry them forward. But it’s Poland who have a better team overall and better units.
Poland should have the upper hand in that match, so the -0.75 for Poland is playable, but the Over 2 Goals is a much better pick here.
Only 1 of Poland’s last 12 matches in all competitions had fewer than 2 goals.
