Poland vs Slovenia Prediction
The Slovenians had taken on North Macedonia in their most recent away game, and it ended in sour taste for them. They did manage to keep their nets clean for the whole of the first half, however, the latter 45 minutes were a different story.
Macedonia fired two goals past the visiting defense, and only at the end of the injury time did the visiting contingent managed one of their own. But by then, they had been fighting for a lost cause.
Meanwhile, the Poles took on this same Macedonian squad, albeit with the home advantage though. With two late goals, in the 74th, and 80th minutes to be precise, the Polish squad recorded three points on the board then.
This Tuesday, the home team is easily the favorite. The reason being, they are the toppers of the table and have posted magnificent stats in the process of ascension to the top.
Despite the presence of some phenomenal strikers, the defense has been the area where the team has been a revelation. So far, from their eight fixtures, the cavalry has conceded a total of just two goals, and with both coming in a single match-up, the Poles recorded seven clean sheets.
On top of that, they have the home advantage, and importantly, the thirst and quest for revenge, as their only loss in the qualification campaign had come on the road against this same opponent.
Furthermore, home teams have reigned supreme in h2h clashes so far, and Slovenia have been winless in 15 of their last 19 overall match-ups, and in 16 of their previous 19 away from home.
Taking these observations under consideration, expect Poland to ride to a victory this match-day, and keep a clean sheet with the help of their top-performing backline.
