Poland have been one of the strongest teams in qualifying for Euro 2020. They will be looking to finish their Group G campaign on a winning note on Tuesday night when they host Slovenia.

Poland (Odds of 4/6 for victory)

The home side is currently three points clear at the top of the group, with second place Austria just behind Jerzy Brzeczek’s team. Poland have been hard to beat in European Championships qualifiers, suffering just one defeat in their last 12, having recorded nine victories in the process.

Poland have built their qualification campaign on a stellar defensive record, as they have kept seven clean sheets in their last nine qualifiers while scoring at least two goals in four of their last six qualification games for the European Championships.

The home side has been formidable on home soil of late in qualifying, as they are currently unbeaten in 15 home qualifiers, having recorded 12 wins in the process. Unsurprisingly considering their stellar recent home record in qualifying, Poland have been outstanding at both ends of the pitch in recent qualifiers. They have kept clean sheets in their last four home outings while scoring at least twice in ten of their last 11 home qualifiers.

In Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski, Poland have one of the best natural centre-forwards in the world game. The 31-year-old will be looking to add to his goal tally of in Group G so far in this clash.

Slovenia (Odds of 17/4 for victory)

Slovenia will not feature at Euro 2020, as they are currently third place in the group and five points behind second-place Austria, who occupy the last qualification berth. Due to their poor performance in the Nations League, the visitors do not even have the comfort of playing in play-offs, with fourth and fifth place North Macedonia and Israel making the play-offs due to their performances in the Nations League.

Slovenia really have experienced a highly inconsistent qualification campaign. The visitors started their campaign by failing to win any of their opening three fixtures, only to record three straight wins over Latvia, Tuesday’s opponents and Israel. However, defeats against North Macedonia and Austria proved fatal to their qualification hopes. Four wins in 11 qualifiers dating back to 2015 is not a great record.

The visitors recent poor away record has been part of their downfall of late, as they have lost five of their last eight qualifiers on the road. They have only failed to find the net twice in the last nine qualification matches on their travels.

Conclusion

Poland have been by far the best team in this group, although Slovenia did win the reverse fixture. We believe Poland will get revenge, so we are backing the home win at odds of 4/6. We are also backing Robert Lewandowski to be an anytime scorer at odds of 4/5.

Verdict: Back the home win at odds of 4/6 and Lewandowski to be an anytime scorer at odds of 4/5. (All odds are taken from Bet365).
