The Nations League will continue on Wednesday with the schedule for round 2 of the new cycle. Undoubtedly, the main event of the evening will be the meeting at King Baudouin. Will Robert Lewandowski and company be able to put up a serious fight against the Red Devils? The website’s expert department has provided their version of the forecast for the key match on June 8, 2022. Full statistics and current odds for the match can be found at 1xbet mobile.
Belgium are already commonly perceived as 1 of European football’s giants at national team level
The Red Devils are in something of a hurry. Still, one has to realise that for the main stars, this calendar year and its tournaments are probably becoming the last real chance to win something cooler than the 2014 World Cup bronze medal. After all, in fact, the same leaders have remained in leading roles since then. And 1 of them, Eden Hazard, seems to have deflated completely, while others, like Vermaelen, are already in the fold. So far, though, De Bruyne and company are still good. They have won World Cup qualification without too many questions. And in the Nations League, they started against their neighbours, the Netherlands. It came as a shock for Roberto Martinez and his charges. Having conceded four times, they only responded with a 90+ minute prestige goal. Lukaku also had to be replaced in the 1st half.
Poland will also try to put their best foot forward
Kadra is still quoted quite well. But after Euro 2016, where there was an embarrassing exit from future winners Portugal, nothing has worked out well at the big tournaments. Neither at the World Cup in Russia, nor even at last year’s Euros, did they manage to get out of the group – not even Lewandowski’s goals helped in 2021. So far, they have been doing fairly well against easier opponents. Qualification for the World Cup ended with a rather expected 2nd place, and, more importantly, albeit not without tricks, they qualified for the World Cup in a truncated form in March. Now Czeslaw Michnevic’s charges began the summer by taking on Wales at home. That side were clearly preparing for a World Cup play-off final. And the experimental Welsh line-up, even opening the scoring in Wroclaw, enabled the hosts to make it 2-1.
They have played a total of nine head-to-head encounters, with Belgium winning just twice. Poland have had 5 wins, including a maximum in their last games, qualifying for Euro 2008.
Poland turns out to be a strong and vicious opponent. Belgium will not allow a 2nd misfire in a row – we bet on the victory of the hosts (odds – 1.74).
