Poland will be hoping to keep their Group G top position in the Euro 2020 Qualifiers this weekend when they travel to Jerusalem to face-off with Israel. Poland has proven to be a major contender in European Championships in the turn of the 21st century and hopes to keep the fire burning. This match will be played on Saturday 16th November 2019 at the Teddi Malcha Stadium starting from 19:45 GMT.
The Polish side hopes to build on their impressive back-to-back wins against Latvia and North Macedonia and scoop all the three points. With the Bayern Munich striker, Robert Lewandowski on the steering wheel for the Poles, they look unstoppable and hungry for a win. They are considered the favorites to carry the day at Jerusalem.
The hosts, on the other hand, stand little chance of making it to the Euro 2020 qualification. However, they are mathematically capable of pulling a surprise and having their say in the Euros come next year. For the Israelites, this has to go down as a do or die match for them. They must win the match if they ever wish to see the beauty of Euro 2020; this, however, is dependent on the outcome of the other Group G outcomes.
Poland is considered more of a team as compared to Israel. With the combination of Arkadiusz Milik and Robert Lewandowski for the away team, the poles have higher chances of carrying the day. Having emerged among Europe’s top sides, Poland managed to make it to the third place in the 1974 and 1982 World Cup. The White Eagles’ new generation of players is even more eager to do more. With all said, we believe there is great value in betting for The White Eagles.
