Poland vs Ireland
Date: Tuesday, 10th September 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadion Miejski (Wroclaw).
Poland welcome Ireland for a friendly match on the back of variable results in their respective opening games on UEFA Nations League.
The Polish side stole a vital point from Italy in their opening game of the inaugural competition. Piotr Zielinski put the Poles in front in the battle at Bologna, the equalizer for the Italians came from the penalty spot, courtesy of Zielinski’s former team mate and Chelsea’s new signing Jorginho.
Ireland encountered a completely different proportion and were completely outplayed and beaten by neighbors Wales. We were expecting a tight contest there, but Martin O’Neill’s men didn’t even look close to their moderate best. The team saw very little ball and the 4-1 full-time score-line was not less than what they deserved on the day.
Poland’s next competitive game is at home against the mighty Portugal in the second week of October, while Ireland also sit at home to Denmark the same week.

- At home, Poland are unbeaten in h2h matches during the period, 1 win and 3 draws.
Poland vs Ireland Prediction
Both managers have the chance to deploy key players here despite this being a friendly. And it is a fact that both are looking for a win for two obvious reasons, Poland to keep the good spirit and Ireland to make amends for the dismal display at Wales on the weekend.
However, we must pick our bets based on the merit on current form and it is definite for Poland to get our full backing in this contest. Another reason for this is Ireland’s poor away form as they lost in the last three and scored just once in the last 4.
