Poland qualified for the 2020 European Championships by finishing top of their qualifying group. It was a comfortable qualifying campaign for the Poles as they finished 6 points clear of second place Austria. Poland were undefeated in 9 of their 10 qualifying matches, winning 8 of those games and based on that record it is easy to see why they are strongly fancied in the betting odds for Poland vs Slovakia.
Poland reached the quarter final at the 2016 European Championship and will want to at least match that in this upcoming tournament. The teams have not met since 2013 but Poland will be hoping to improve their head to head record against Slovakia having lost 3 of their last 4 meetings. This will be the first time the nations have met in a major international competition and we continue our Poland vs Slovakia match preview below.
2. Slovakia vs Poland Outsiders
Now we come to the Poland vs Slovakia outsider. This will be the second successive European Championship for Slovakia and only the second time they have appeared in a major international competition following the breakup of Czechoslovakia. In 2016, Slovakia reached the Round of 16 of the tournament, qualifying in third place from a group that contained England, Wales, and Russia.
However, the majority of Slovakia vs Poland betting predictions believe this is going to be a tough opening fixture for the Slovak team. They finished third in their qualifying group, just 1 point behind Wales who secured the second automatic qualifying spot behind group winners Croatia. This was an extremely tight qualifying group and only 5 points separated 1st and 4th place at the end of the campaign.
Slovakia advanced to the play offs via the Nations League and overcame Republic of Ireland via a penalty shoutout before defeating Northern Ireland in extra time. As highlighted above, Slovakia have a decent record against Poland but their most recent meeting came back in 2013 and therefore they remain the Poland vs Slovakia underdog in the betting.

You can back the score to be level at half-time with 0-0 at half-time is on offer with all bookies.
There is one name that stands out in this match in terms of a goal scorer and that is Robert Lewandowski.
