Slovenia vs Poland Predictions
Slovenia don’t have the best record at qualifying for international tournaments, having failed to make it beyond the group stages of the two World Cups and one European Championships that they’ve qualified for in the past. They’ll be hoping that the expansions in format to both of those competitions can lead to more success in the coming years but their chances of progression this time around are looking slim.
After four games, Matjaz Kek’s men have picked up just one win and continue to draw games, with their ties against Israel and North Macedonia meaning they’ve now drawn five of their last seven games. With just five points from an available 12 to their name, chances of catching up to the top two in this group are already starting to diminish, unless they can pick up a win in this home fixture at 13/5 with Bet365
Poland on the other hand look to be in prime position to qualify here as they continue to rebuild after a disappointing first round exit at last year’s World Cup. The last few years have been relatively strong for the White Eagles and they’re looking to make this the fourth consecutive European Championship that they have qualified for and with four games on the board it would take a spectacular collapse to prevent that now.
Under Jerzy Brzcezek, who replaced Adam Nawalka following that poor performance in Russia, Poland have won their first four games of qualifying, beating Austria, Latvia, North Macedonia and Israel without conceding a goal as they continue to progress under their new manager. With confidence high, the bookmakers make them favourites to continue their perfect start here at odds of 5/4 with Coral.
We’re backing this well organised Polish defence to come out on top again here. Four wins and four clean sheets show just how strong Brzcezek’s defensive set-up is and Slovenia they come up against a side who scored five versus minnows Latvia last time out but but failed to score more than once in their nine games before that. That’s why we’re backing the visitors to win and keep a clean sheet here at 12/5 with Bet365.
Robert Lewandowski’s goalscoring touch shows no signs of wilting on the international stage, even at the age of 31. The Bayern Munich forward could be set to break his nation’s all-time appearance record in this game and he already holds the record for most goals for the White Eagles with 57 – including two in this qualification period. We’re backing him for another in this game at very reasonable odds of 23/20 with William Hill.
