Germany take on neighbors Poland in the second round match of European Championship group stage. The match will be played in Saint Denis at Stade de France on Thursday, June 16th.
Germany showed their advantage in level of skills in their win over Ukraine, 2-0. Die Mannschaft scored opening goal on 19th minute after a set-piece and sealed the win with late second goal scored in perfect counterattack. Germany were stronger in every component of the game against Ukraine and proved themselves as one of the main contenders for the title in France. Joachim Lew proved that his team is able to stay determined in official matches for entire 90 minutes and ambiguous results in friendlies may give the wrong picture of true level of the team.

Poland showed much better football than their opponents in the first match Northern Ireland. The match should’ve end with thrashing defeat of the Britons, but Poland found back of the net just once despite 18 shots taken with four of them on goal. Poland need to take only one point in two remaining matches to clinch the place in knockout stage and it appears the team is capable of such achievement. Lewandowski and his teammates recorded 14 wins in their last 25 matches in all competitions with eight draws and only three defeats. However, the match against Germany will quite tough as Poland face the world champions who are in solid conditions.
Germany and Poland faced one another ten times in their history. Last two head-to-heads were played in the qualifiers for Euro-2016 in France when the opponents recorded home wins. Poland beaten Germany 2-0 and Die Mannschaft replied with 3-1 win. Germany have bigger chances for success in this match as the overall level of the team is much higher and they would definitely improve from match to match while Poland is about the same-level team as Ukraine and don’t’ have resources to defeat the World Champions.
Prediction for the match: Germany to win.
