Poland vs Ireland by Mudhara_9er

Poland
VS
Ireland
Poland and Ireland both have 18 points and are 1 point behind leaders Germany. Poland have a better goal difference and can settle for a draw whereas Ireland must win to secure the direct ticket to the finals. Poland have home advantage and their biggest star Robert Lewandowski is in superb goal form, having scored 12 goals from 9 matches and recently scoring a brace against Scotland which was enough to secure Poland a 2-2 draw.

 

Tonight this match can be categorised as a final because the winner gets the direct ticket while the loser has to go through the playoffs to secure advancement. As mentioned earlier Poland have home advantage and can settle for a draw, meaning Ireland have to attack.

 

Looking at the two teams Ireland have been great in the group but will have to secure a victory without a few key players, out through injury. Poland are favourites and I believe they will not want to play for a draw by parking the bus, I expect them to be patient but utilise any space Ireland open at the back. They have the fire power to score and have score at least 2 goals in all their home matches.

 

The last match between the two teams ended in a 1-1 draw.

 

Ireland will accept playing in the play offs but will certainly fight for a the direct ticket, they defeated Germany in the last match, a surprise result to many but that illustrated the teams spirit and ability to get a result. They only lost once and that was against Scotland away from home, and actually drew away against Germany.

 

Like I said this is a final, 2 teams playing for 1 ticket. I expect Ireland too want to get the home side unnerved as soon as possible and attempt to get an early goal, while Poland will want to utilise the home advantage to its fullest. Ireland will maintain a solid Defensive organisation as they know Lewandowski is in too form and will push any mistakes in the area.

 

I would go with Poland to win but because they can settle for a draw which makes it hard to predict how Poland will go into this match. The first match only produced 2 goals but I expect more so Btts and over 2 is a good bet in my opinion.
