Two favorites of group G will play each other in the first round of UEFA Euro 2020. Austria will take such an opponent as Poland. Who will emerge victorious from this battle? Official BK Russia is considered the favorite (by a small margin in the coefficients) of the owners. But is it really?
In the last century, "Das Team" performed quite well at international competitions. But by the end of the century, everything changed. With the 1998 world Cup in France, the team does not get to the Mundial. But she participated in the final stages of Euro 2008 and 2016. That's just beyond the group stage is not passed.
In the League of Nations, Austria also showed some stunning results. She finished second in the company of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Northern Ireland. As a consequence, in the next drawing command will again play in division B. Not too comforting result for the team, which plays Alaba.
In the beginning of this decade, "White eagles" went to a whole other level. Yes, they were not at the world Cup in 2010 and 2014. But in other tournaments Euro 2008, the team regularly plays. And very good. Otherwise it can not be, when a team has stars such as Szczesny, Lewandowski, Pentek, Milik and others. No wonder H-2016 to knock out the competition the poles only in the quarterfinals (and in the penalty shoot-out) managed only the Portuguese, who a little later and won the trophy.
But as shown by the League of Nations, Poland still does not reach the level of the top teams. She lost in the group with Portugal and Italy, causing the "White-red" will of the elite to move to League B.
Despite all the power and coherence of the Austrian team, we believe in three points for the opponent. Our forecast of N2. All the same potential Poland is a bit superior to the Austrians.
