On Wednesday evening, June 1, Poland will take on Wales at the Wrocław Arena in Round 1 of the Nations League. Will the home side claim a comfortable win? Full statistics and current odds for the match can be found at 1xbet nigeria.
The Eagles failed to progress past the group stage at the 2018 World Cup before falling just short of the quartet again at Euro 2020. Czeslaw Michnevic’s side will face Mexico, Saudi Arabia and Argentina in the group stage of the World Cup in Qatar, but the Whites and Reds will now focus all their attention on the UEFA Nations League. The campaign will begin with a match against Wales, before playing Belgium and the Netherlands twice over the next few weeks.
Poland finished third in Group 1 of the 2020-21 UEFA Nations League A. The hosts have lost only one of their last nine matches in all competitions, and defeated Sweden 2-0 in the play-offs for the Mundial in Qatar in late March (1,Russ.).
Wales will of course be competitive in the UEFA Nations League, having faced Poland, the Netherlands and Belgium in the next couple of weeks. But Rob Page’s side will now be thinking about Sunday’s play-off final for the Mundial in Qatar against either Scotland or Ukraine (the opponent will be decided on Wednesday). The British finished top of Group 4 of League B in their last UEFA Nations League campaign with 16 points from six games against Finland, Ireland and Bulgaria to qualify for Group A.
The Dragons finished their World Cup qualifying on 24 March with a 2-1 win over Austria, thanks to which they finished second in Group E behind Belgium. The Welsh will enter this match after a 1-1 draw with the Czech Republic in a friendly at the end of March (Rubin Colville scored).
The last time these teams faced each other was in a friendly in February 2009, which ended in a 0-1 win for the Poles.
Prediction for Poland v Wales
The home side are deservedly regarded as the favourites for this encounter. First of all, the Poles have a much better squad, there are some stars of the first caliber (Lewandowski, Zielinski, Milik, Szczęsny). Secondly, the Red and Whites have already solved all their problems of qualifying for the World Cup, and can focus their attention on the Nations League. Wales, on the other hand, have yet to face a play-off final against Scotland/Ukraine at the weekend, so Rob Page will probably not release all of their key players. I think Poland will have no problem picking up 3 points.
