Our Expert Predictions & Analysis on Poland vs Slovakia


The Poles got to the 2020 World Cup from the first place of the qualifying group, winning 8 matches out of 10. It is worth noting a good game in defense (only 5 goals conceded) and, of course, Levandovsky: 6 goals scored and two assists. In the Nations League, the "white eagles" took only 3rd place out of 4, being behind Italy and the Netherlands, and in the selection for the 2022 World Cup they drew with Hungary (3-3), easily defeated Andorra (3-0) and did not hold a draw with England (1-2), conceding the second goal in the 85th minute.

This year, the head coach, Jerzy Bzhenchek, was fired. The reason was not disclosed, but if you consider how well the national team played in the selection for the Euro, then it is clearly not about the results. The vacant post went to the Portuguese Paulo Sousa. He decided to change the scheme from 4-4-2 to 3-5-2, but the players are still not used to the new structures, and this is not the best results: one win for 4 matches and 6 goals conceded.

Lewandowski is the best center forward in the world at the moment and the best player in the history of the national team, the author of numerous records, and this season also won the golden boot. At the same time, he scored only one goal at the World Championships and two at the European Championships. In addition to Robert, we can mention the experienced goalkeeper Szczestny, midfielder Krychowiak, as well as Zelinsky and Milik, who have the best years behind them, but it is difficult to imagine the national team without them now.

Poland vs Slovakia predictions

Of the 24 participants of the 2020 World Cup, Slovakia made one of the longest qualifiers. At first, there were 8 matches of the group stage, according to the results of which the team took only 3rd place, being behind Wales and Croatia. Then there were play-offs: in the semifinals, the Slovaks beat the Irish on penalties, and in the final they were stronger than Northern Ireland (2-1), scoring the decisive goal in extra time.

Slovakia "does not pay attention" to the Nations League, taking the last place in the group for the second time in a row, and as for the start of the qualifying cycle for the 2022 World Cup, Torkovic's wards shared points with Cyprus, went away from shame in the home game against Malta (2-2) and beat Russia (2-1).

The Slovaks now have no clear leader, no scoring forwards and no reliability in defense. From the squad, it is possible to note, except for the experienced Shkrinyar, Mack and Gamshik, but only the first season, and at a high level, played out (as part of Inter Milan).

Game Totals Prediction

It seems to us that Slovakia is a clear outsider of the group, because in terms of composition and game, it is inferior to Poland, Sweden, and even more so to Spain. The Poles will play first, they will push, and there is no doubt that they will score and achieve the desired victory. Here it is best to take "Poland More (1,0)" for 1.45 or " Poland More (1,5)" for 2.15. On the other hand, it is hard to believe in the abundance of goals, as well as in a major victory of the Sousa team, so the bet "P1+TM (4,5)" for 1.9 looks good.
