Poland started their game against the Netherlands as the outsiders to claim a win. They lost the game, with the Dutch battling to a 2-1 victory, but the Poles pushed their big-name opponents hard throughout the 90 minutes. The losing side had nothing to show for their efforts, but they took pride in the performance and aimed to get off the mark the second time they asked. Can they make it right against Austria?

Poland was without star striker Robert Lewandowski for the first game but didn’t let that spoil their day. They took the lead inside 16 minutes thanks to a goal from Buksa and held the lead until Gakpo equalised on 29 minutes. There was one final twist in the tale, with Weghorst scoring a late winner for the Dutch.

Austria had a baptism of fire against France in their opening game of the group on Monday evening. They now must refocus, learn the lessons of that day, and shoot for the three points in this return. Austria knows Poland is a very different challenge from France, and they have a better chance of getting something from this game.

The Austrians flew under the radar ahead of Monday’s meeting with France, but they are firmly under the spotlight here, with fans eager to find out how this group will pan out after two rounds. Austria is good enough to beat Poland but was held to a draw by Friday’s opponents when they last met in competitive action. Another close game is likely.

Poland vs Austria H2H Record and Key Numbers

How will this game go, and which team will win? Many football fans rely heavily on the stats when making predictions, and we highlight the head-to-head figures in this section. The H2H shows that the Poles and Austrians have met eleven times previously, with Poland having five wins, Austria showing four victories, and the other two games ending in a draw.

The last game was in September 2019, when the nations finished 0-0 in a Euro 2020 qualifier. Poland won the game before that 1-0, meaning they’re unbeaten against Austria in five, a run that stretches back to 1994. It’s also worth noting that there have been one or fewer goals between the teams in their last four.

Possible Lineups

  • Poland (4-2-3-1): Szczesny – Kiwior, Salamon, Bednarek, Zalewski – Zielinski, Zomanczuk – Szymanski, Frankowski, Urbanski – Buksa
  • Austria (3-5-2): Pentz – Wober, Danso, Posch – Prass, Seiwald, Grillistch, Schmid, Baumgartner – Wimmer, Arnautovic

Poland was impressed in their opening game when they took the lead against a fantastic Netherlands team and pushed them hard to the finish line. If they can build on that performance, the Poles will expect to win this game, but I am following the stats and backing a draw. Playing the level finish would’ve earned you a profit in two of the last three games involving these teams.
