Slovenia vs Poland
Date: Friday, 6 September 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Stadion Stožice (Ljubljana).
Group G is going along expected lines with Poland easily taking the lead, and by miles. They are sitting strong with four wins out of four games and will be looking to extend the streak to five this Friday. With them having a lead of five points already, the side is rightfully billed as a top contender to get into the Euros.
Even more impressive is the fact that the side is yet to concede a goal, having scored eight in return.
Opponents Slovenia meanwhile has registered a single win so far, and at present can realistically go after the second spot in the table. Interestingly their sole home game was against minnows North Macedonia, and this had ended in a lackluster 1-1 draw.
The star attraction for the tie will surely be Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski, who had recently penned down a deal extending his stay with the Bavarians till 2023. Along with AC Milan’s very own Krzysztof Piątek, the frontline of the Polish cavalry is a frightening prospect for any of world football’s titans, let alone Slovenia.
Slovenia vs Poland Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two met, spoils were shared with a 1-1 scoreline.
- Only once has Slovenia kept a clean sheet against this opponent in the last 15 years.
- Slovenia registered a 3-0 victory the last time these two met in an official encounter, which was in 2009.
Slovenia vs Poland Prediction
The hosts of the day have won just once in their last ten match-days, and just twice in their previous 15 attempts. At home, they are winless in the last two years and have not kept a clean sheet in the former six appearances there.
Going on, the team has won just once in the Euro Qualifiers and messed up their sole home game so far, which was against North Macedonia.
On the other hand, the Poles are coming hot with four wins in a row, and all four had come in this same competition. Even more frightening is the fact that all four were wins to nil. In addition, the side was also unbeaten in 13 of their previous 14 matches on the road.
Finally, taking into account the World Cup qualification of the Polish contingent, and the inability of their counterparts, the upper hand surely goes to the visitors of the day.
