Austria vs Poland Match Preview
One of the more open-looking Euro 2020 qualifying groups kicks off with a clash of the two favourites in Vienna – and Poland are tipped to make a flying start to their campaign.
This duo are fancied by the bookmakers to claim the two places available from Group G at next year’s tournament, with Poland a best-priced Evens to finish top of the table ahead of Austria, Israel, Slovenia, Macedonia and Latvia.
But none of the other nations in this pool should be too pessimistic about their own chances because neither Austria nor Poland have been in particularly sparkling form of late.
Austria had a pretty ordinary time of it in the inaugural UEFA Nations League, holding their own in the second of the four tiers but the failure to score a goal in either of their matches against group winners Bosnia-Herzegovina prevented them from progressing.
Poland’s plight has been more alarming. They have not won any of their six games this season and consequently were relegated from the top tier of the Nations League, although a closing draw away to Portugal, in which they dominated, was much more encouraging.
This represents a fresh start for the Poles, managed by Jerzy Brzeczek who only took over after last year’s World Cup, and with a strong squad here spearheaded by Robert Lewandowski they are backed to get a crucial early victory on the board.
