Austria welcome the visitors Poland in the Euro Qualification – Round 1. The match will be held on Thursday, March, 21st, at the Ernst Happel Stadion (Vienna).
After the 2nd in their history Euro qualification, of which 1 was fair-won (the UEFA Euro 2008 was partially held in Austria, so, the team competed there without passing the qualifying cycle), the hosts on the day featured 24 matches and conceded in only 4. 15 of the fixtures were home ones, just 2 of those registered Austria’s losses: to Ireland and Brazil. The Austria national team boast a rather strong squad – their performers compete for the German Bundesliga clubs: Hinteregger plays in Eintracht Frankfurt, Gregoritsch – in Augsburg, Lazaro – in Hertha Berlin, Baumgartlinger and Dragovic compete for Bayer Leverkusen, Ilsanker – for RB Leipzig, and Alaba – for Bayern Munich, solid outfits, as we can see.

The Poland national team, who were much hoped for ahead of the FIFA World Cup 2018, have completely failed the tournament – they could not qualify from the group wherein they competed with Japan, Senegal, and Columbia. That said, the side feature a number of qualified performers. Afterwards, the visitors dropped out Nations League’s League A, which can be excused, actually, as Poland faced the European champions Portugal and Italy.
Though Austria host the match and are little advantageous in light of this, they should not be predicted winners; neither should Poland be. Despite their not very successful record lately, the visitors are no worse than the hosts in terms of their performers. They also have qualified footballers who compete in the German Bundesliga – take, for example, Lewandowski from Bayern Munich – and in the Italian Serie A – Bereszynski plays for Sampdoria, the goalkeeper Szczesny – in Juventus, Milik and Zielinski – in Napoli; Krychowiak is a player of Lokomotiv Moscow, and Kedziora is one of Dynamo Kyiv, not the last clubs in the European football.
We may see goals at both ends. The Poland team’s strikers Zielinski, Milik, and Lewandowski (the latter shipped yet 5 goals in 4 latest Munich’s matches!) will surely unlock the hosts’ defense at least once. The Austrians will also succeed to net. Of 12 previous encounters on their turf, they did not score in only 2 – against the regularly shut Bosnia and in the friendly versus Brazil. This century, the sides met thrice, all 3 head-to-heads saw goal-exchanges.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score.
