The big change in the national team is the dominant topic currently in football Germany. Was the expulsion of Thomas Müller, Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels right or wrong. The opinions are split. It is clear that national coach Jogi Löw is now being closely monitored and measured by the successes. On Wednesday is the first test match against Serbia, before the weekend is the first real hard test in the qualifier against archrival Holland on the plan. The Germans were not the only nation after the World Cup that announced a change and now also implemented it. Poland was one of the disappointment countries that had to pack their bags after the preliminary round. A new coach has been installed with Jerzy Brzeczek, who has not had good results in his short term. After three draws and three defeats, he is still waiting for the first three.
Football Betting Prediction Austria vs Poland
The next chance will come on Thursday in Austria, when Poland wants to make a tip for the away win despite higher odds. The bookies do not necessarily believe in it and give the Austrians the favorite position at home. In the Ernst Happel Stadium in Vienna, there is great excitement and also anticipation of the first matchday of the European Championship qualifiers. In Group G, apart from Austria and Poland, the two most favored nations, including Northern Macedonia, Slovenia, Latvia and Israel, are represented in the group-victory prediction. The encounter in Vienna is therefore trend-setting for both teams and the winner sets the course for EM 2010.
Austria wants to be part of a big tournament again. The qualification for the European Championship 2020 is the big goal of the Alpine Republic after the World Cup in Russia was missed in 2018. The chances are not bad for several reasons. On the one hand, yes, since 2016 at the European Championships 24 instead of 16 nations participate. On the other hand, Austria had luck in the draw to have caught a feasible group. Northern Macedonia, Slovenia, Latvia and Israel are all bearable, which is why Poland is arguably the biggest contender for first place in the table. Even rank 2 would be enough in the end. A sense of achievement for qualifying would be incredibly important for the team of national coach Franco Foda, who has been in office since November 2017. In the new year, the coach gives some newcomers the chance to prove themselves.
Kevin Stöger, Konrad Laimer and Markus Posch were nominated for the first time. 13 players from the squad, including captain Julian Baumgartlinger, are in the Bundesliga under contract. One had to cancel at short notice. We are talking about Guido Burgstaller, who is employed at FC Schalke 04. He has to fit because of a short-term dental surgery. The team is led by David Alaba, the superstar of Bayern Munich. He is ready for the game against Poland from Austria, which of course confirms a tip on the home win. Otherwise, you may be curious how many of the new faces get deployment times or possibly even in the starting lineup. Franco Foda did not look too much into the cards in advance.

Poland – Statistics & Current Form
Poland had to work up the 2018 World Cup and subsequently had to work on a few construction sites. First, a new head coach had to be found, which then worked quickly with Jerzy Brzeczek. Subsequently, the theater was about Robert Lewandowski, who has publicly denied the quality of some of his teammates after the World Cup, finally ended. The attacker of Bayern is the undisputed superstar and despite some escapades not to think of the team. The turnaround is far from over for the 20th FIFA World Ranking. Since the World Cup in Russia, six national games have been contested, a victory has not yet spilled out for Poland.
The sportive development threatens to slow down after many successful years in the football-loving country. Hope makes the fans before the game on Thursday, perhaps the good away balance. While at home the pressure often paralyzes the players a bit, so in the past, mostly good results were achieved. Only one of the past five qualifying games away was lost. Whether this is enough to go optimistic and confident in the game in Vienna, is questionable. Personally, some changes are expected. Overall, the squad of Poland is by no means as broad as that of Austria, which is why there are limits to the tactical possibilities. Another clear advantage for the hosts. Positive for Poland is to note that she had in the Nations League group with Portugal and Italy very heavy opponents.

Austria vs. Poland Direct Comparison
The nine matches so far between Austria and Poland allow for the prediction that the audience in Vienna will definitely see a goal. At least three goals have been scored in seven out of the last eight matches and both teams scored. The overall balance is quite balanced. With four wins each, none of the nations has the edge. The last comparison in 2008 is more than a decade back and comes from the home championship of Austria. In the preliminary round, the nations parted with a 1-1. Vastic scored for the hosts in stoppage time to the final. Since then there has not been a duel for a long time.
Austria vs Poland Our Betting Predictions Explained
Choosing a good prediction between Austria and Poland is not easy, as in all international matches. The last games come from the last calendar year and are thus a few months back. In addition, now stands for the first time another competitive game outside the Nations League, which was not taken seriously by all countries. It is therefore important above all to rate the two opponents on Thursday evening purely qualitatively. Form, direct comparison or tactical alignment do not matter much. Austria and Poland have in common that with Bayern stars David Alaba and Robert Lewandowski one player leads the team. In Poland, however, the hierarchy in the team is a little more complicated after Lewa publicly criticized some of his colleagues after the World Cup. Although coach Brzeczek wanted to provide peace after his takeover, but he has only partially succeeded. Above all, the continued lack of sporting success gnaw at him and his team.
Key Facts – Austria vs Poland tips
↪ Austria is very strong at home
↪ Poland with team internal problems, Austria with a small striker problem
↪ Poland has not celebrated victory for 6 games

That before the kick-off of the match Austria vs. Poland’s odds of bookmakers for a home win have dropped a little, is a small indication that the value is on the side of the home side. The four units for this tip on Thursday evening are well-invested in any case and “red-white-red” can take a threesome at home right on the road to EM 2020.
