Poland vs Bosnia Betting Odds and Predictions – Nations League 2020

Will Lewandowski shoot his nation to victory?

🔻 Betting Prediction: Poland
🔺 Betting Odds: 1.86

Similar to Germany, Poland also benefited in the first edition of the UEFA Nations League from the fact that relegation was subsequently suspended. Otherwise, it would have gone down to League B for the White-Reds. Instead, the Polish national football team continues to play in Group A1 and could take a big step towards staying in the league with a home win over Bosnia.

In the run-up to the match between Poland and Bosnia, the odds of the bookmakers in all forms turn towards the white-reds, as the odds comparison of the betting base below shows.

Poland celebrated a 2-1 away win in Zenica in the first leg and came back after a 0-1 deficit – remarkably even without Robert Lewandowski’s life insurance. The fact that Europe’s Footballer of the Year 2020 is now part of the game increases the chances of the white-reds immensely. With a win, the lead on the relegation zone would increase to five points.

Against this background, we agree with the assessment of the betting providers and recommend Poland vs. Bosnia Tip 1.

Poland – Statistics & current form

The Polish national football team is currently experiencing its best phase since the 1970s and 1980s when the third place was achieved at the 1974 World Cup and 1986 World Cup. Most recently, the Biało-Czerwoni (in German: the white and red) finally made their first appearance at the European Championships.

At EURO 2008, Poland managed to qualify for the finals of an Euro for the first time in the 13th attempt. Since then, the players around captain, record player and record scorer Robert Lewandowski have not missed a European championship.

Sovereign march through in the Euro qualification 2021

The Biało-Czerwoni also won the ticket for EURO 2021 with flying colours. In qualification group G, the Poles won eight out of ten games and, with 18: 5 goals, scored six points over Austria and eleven points ahead of North Macedonia, they won the group to qualify directly for the European-wide tournament.

Only in the Nations League, it did not go particularly well. Without a win, Poland landed in the first edition in group A3 in the last place behind Portugal and Italy. This time, however, there are already four points to book after the first three games.

With a win even the championship lead is possible

This puts Poland just one point behind leaders Italy, against whom there was a respectable 0-0 draw on Sunday. Another win over Bosnia-Herzegovina and the White-Reds would take the lead in a draw between Italy and the Netherlands.

Practically everything speaks for the fact that in Poland against Bosnia tip 1 will work out in the end. If superstar and life insurance Robert Lewandowski was not available in the first leg because of Bavaria’s participation in the Champions League final tournament, when his teammates came to the 2-1 away win without him, then Europe’s Footballer of the Year is now back on board and could once again Make a difference.

The probable lineup of Poland:
➤ Fabianski – Bereszynski – Walukiewicz – Glik – Kedziora – Moder – Krychowiak – Józwiak – Klich – Szymanski – Lewandowski

Bosnia – Statistics & current form

The Bosnian-Herzegovinian national football team recently experienced several disappointments in a row. The nation, which was allowed to take part in a major tournament for the first and only time in history at the World Cup in Brazil in 2014, clearly missed the jump to the first European Championship in the 2021 European Championship qualification.

Only fourth came the Zmajevi (in German: the dragons) in qualification group J, in which Italy marched through with ten wins. Behind them, Bosnia-Herzegovina had justified hopes for second place. Because in the end there were only four wins, the Zmajevi not only landed behind Finland but even behind Greece.

In the semi-finals of the playoffs, the Euro dream burst

At the same time, however, Bosnia impressed in the first Nations League. Unbeaten succeeded in group B3 with only one goal from four games, promotion to League A. This brought the Zmajevi also the participation in the playoffs for the European championship.

There Dušan Bajević’s team competed in the semi-finals against Northern Ireland last Thursday. After a 1-1 draw after 120 minutes, the Bosnians ultimately failed on penalties. The dream of the European Championship has burst like a soap bubble.

The away win must come in Poland

It would be all the more important that, at least in the Nations League, there was no immediate relegation to League B, which would ultimately also have an impact on qualification for the subsequent European Championship, whose groups are based on the Nations League.

The Zmajevi fought a respectable 0-0 against the Netherlands on Sunday. In Poland, they still need a threesome to hand over the red lantern. A result that the bookmakers do not really trust Dušan Bajević’s team.

The probable lineup of Bosnia:
➤ Sehic – Kadusic – Sanicanin – Hadzikadunic – Todorovic – Cimirot – Gojak – Krunic – Pjanic – Tatar – Duric

Poland vs Bosnia Betting Odds and Predictions

For Poland against Bosnia, our prediction is heavily influenced by the first leg between the two nations. Even without Lewandowski, the white-reds were able to turn a 0-1 deficit in Bosnia into a 2-1 victory.

In connection with the end in the European Championship playoffs, which put the Zmajevi an additional damper, at home with a Lewandowski in front there should be little burn in the second leg.

Key facts – Poland vs Bosnia tips

🔺 Poland won the first leg away in Zenica 2-1
🔺 Bosnia failed last Thursday in the semi-finals of the European Championship playoffs against Northern Ireland
🔺 Poland could become leaders in the Nations League Group A1 with a three-man point

Accordingly, we see little potential in betting against the Polish national soccer team in this second leg. Instead, we agree with the bookmakers’ assessment and recommend tip 1.
