Poland Tournament Analysis
Group E will be one of the tightest races for second place at EURO 2020 as it will likely be between Poland and Sweden for that second qualifying spot. Although both are capable of contending with Spain for the group depending on a positive result against the Spanish, their matchup on the final day of group stage play may determine who moves on depending on third place contention.
The game-changer for the Polish will undoubtedly be striker Robert Lewandowski, widely considered the best at his position in the world in 2021. A 41-goal Bundesliga season in 2020-21 now stands as the all-time record and Lewandowski may be in the best form of his career. He will be surrounded by a supporting cast of capable youngsters and a proven goalkeeper in Wojciech Szczęsny.
Manager Paulo Sousa likes to mix things up with his squad, generally sticking to a simple 4-4-2 or 4-2-2-2 formation. A quick-moving counterattack that is not afraid to send men forward can be effective to break down low blocks (like that of Sweden) and overwhelm backlines with their linkups and crosses into their star number nine.
Poland will net a few against Group E bottom feeders Slovakia but may struggle to convert against Spain in their opening match. Getting over the number may come down to beating out Sweden in their second match to not only add to the total but to send them into the knockouts. Look to the star power of both Robert Lewandowski and a few key saves from a reliable Szczesny to be enough for Poland to sneak out of this group and tally enough goals to reach this total.
The Bet: Over 4.5 (-115)
