Austria – Poland, Euro Qualifications Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR AUSTRIA - POLAND
Although they lost only once, it was precisely this loss from Bosnia in the first match that prevented Austria from finishing first in the group. More than 15 years ago, a very serious reform and a whole new strategy has been launched on a specific system for the future of Austrian football, and it has just begun to see results, though not so spectacular. Although in a friendly match, Austria defeated Germany almost a year ago and at home rarely loses matches at all.
The Poles were unlucky and fell into a rather heavy group with Italy and Portugal for the League of Nations, but after being in League A, they were expected to have similar rivals. Polska did not even record a single victory, and their game was not much different than the World Cup. There is definitely a serious decline in Poland in recent years, and the shape of Lewandowski, who must be the leader of the team, also does not help much.
Poland is not one of the most defensive teams, but now it is logical not to approach so aggressively, but to keep their post as it will be one of the most difficult games in the group for them and they will not want to lose in the beginning. Austria has a very stable defense overall and is quite difficult to concede goals at home. This is also the reason why they often score 1 goal and win. Austria’s last 3 home games were under 2.5 goals, and in the last 6 out of 7 games in Poland visits there were under 2.5 goals. Prediction – Under 2.5 goals at 1.62.
- In only two of the last 13 home games, Austria has conceded more than 1 goal
- In 8 of the last 10 away games, Poland has conceded less than 2 goals
