Latvia: Keep losing (Recent Form: LLLLLL)
Latvia are on 6th place in group G in UEFA Euro 2020 qualification, having lost all 6 games to date. They host Poland on Thursday. “The first match against Poland was as our best performance in these qualification. Of course, I was afraid of going to Poland before the game, I have the same fear now. We had opportunities but we didn't took advantage of them. In the second half, Poles imposed a higher tempo. We were not physically ready for it. Now we want to show a better football. We must be disciplined, organized and seize the opportunities. Poland’s strongest point is that Lewandowski is not standing in the penalty area, but he goes back for the ball, protects it, plays it. You can't let him out of your sight. In recent weeks, he performs even better than before. At the moment he is the best striker in the world. There are also quality players from the second plan, like Grosicki or Krychowiak,” said coach Slaviša Stojanović.
Poland: Playing poorly (Recent Form: DLWWWW)
Poland sit top in group G with 13 points, but the level of play is not good. Now it’s time for an away encounter. “We know that we are a definite favorite, but history teaches humbleness. I can remember the match I played against San Marino, which we won only 1:0 after a goal by hand. We want to approach this game with humility and focus from the first minute. Each game is completely different. In the first match against Latvia we scored a goal in the 85th minute, it ended only 2:0. In addition, they counter-attacked us twice,” said coach Jerzy Brzeczek.
THE BETTING VERDICT:
Summing up, it looks like this might be a low-scoring clash. Both sides are defensive-minded. Moreover, it’s worth noting that Latvia didn’t manage to find the net in last 5 matches whereas Poland in the last 2.
