Poland will host Sweden this Tuesday, as both the teams fight to book a spot in the showpiece football event to be held in Qatar towards the end of the year.
Poland, which finished second in Group I during the group stages of the qualifiers, was drawn in Path B of the play-offs and was due to play against Russia in the semi-finals. But given the current geopolitical situation surrounding the Russian invasion of Ukraine, FIFA has banned the Russian national team from participating in any international event. This ban meant that Poland received a walk-over, and has automatically qualified for the finals. Having last played an international game back in the group stages in November, the Polish team does seem to be a bit out of practice.
In that game, Poland lost to Hungary but nevertheless advanced into the playoffs. However, the team did play a friendly game against Scotland during the weekend and managed to eke out a last-minute draw, thanks to a penalty goal by Piatek in the stoppage time.
Sweden finished second in Group B, setting up a clash with the Czech Republic in the semi-finals. The Czechs were unlucky to have an early goal ruled out due to a foul, and could not create any real chance from thereon. The Swedes held possession for close to 60% of the time, and Alexander Isak, Emil Forsberg, and Dejan Kulusevski tried to score multiple times and failed.
The game was scoreless when the 90-minute whistle blew and spilled over to extra time. Robin Quaison managed to pull out a goal during the 110th minute, handing Sweden the advantage, which it held on to till the end of extra time. Despite the Swedish heroics in the semi-finals, most football betting sites are predicting a win for Poland.
Match prediction and betting tips for Poland vs Sweden, FIFA World Cup European qualifiers 2019-2022. The match is going to be played at the Silesian Stadium, Poland, on 29th March 2022.
Sweden had managed to beat Poland at the 2020 UEFA EURO, and with a finals berth at stake, it will be looking to put up a similar performance this time too. With their premier striker back in action after serving his suspension in the semi-finals, his team would very much try to get him to what could be his final chance to play at the World Cup finals.
Poland will be banking on Robert Lewandowski to give it an early lead. With a fully fit squad, there should be no selection issues for coach Czeslaw Michniewicz. Goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is expected to make a comeback to the starting eleven after being rested against Scotland.
We expect this to be a closely fought encounter, but the visitors will likely struggle to score in what could be a low-scoring game.
Bet on a Poland win.
