Poland look in reasonable form heading into Euro 2020 and may be keen to find top gear when facing Iceland in their final warm-up match.
The Eagles begin their Group E campaign with what could be a pivotal clash with Slovakia, so would ideally like to hit the ground running.
We reckon 6/5 for a home win and under 3.5 goals in Poznan is the way to go with our first Poland vs Iceland prediction.
A Look At Poland’s Betting Odds
Poland take on Spain in their second Euro 2020 fixture and close the pool section by meeting Sweden.
The Eagles qualified as group winners ahead of Austria, posting eight wins and one draw from 10 games, with just five goals conceded.
A decent Nations League effort featured two wins over Bosnia and Herzegovina while World Cup qualifying started well enough, despite a 2-1 loss to England at Wembley.
Last week brought a 1-1 friendly draw with Russia, with Jakub Swierczok putting them ahead after just four minutes only for Vyacheslav Karavayev to equalise.
Robert Lewandowski, who scored a third of his side’s 18 strikes and has netted 66 times in 118 international appearances, was an unused substitute that night.
Paulo Sousa should seek to step things up a level here but Poland do tend to be more organised than spectacular.
Looking at the Poland vs Iceland odds, we like 6/1 for a 2-0 home victory.
A Look At Iceland’s Betting Odds
After reaching the quarter-finals of Euro 2016, Iceland missed out on a place in this summer’s big event.
Our Boys were a respectable third behind France and Turkey before beating Romania in the play-offs but then lost to Hungary.
Six straight defeats in last year’s Nations League section featuring Belgium, Denmark and England will have hurt.
World Cup qualifying also started slowly, with losses to Germany and Armenia preceding a 4-1 win in Liechtenstein.
The current international break began with a 2-1 defeat by Mexico, prior to a 1-0 away victory over Faroe Islands.
Everton star Gylfi Sigurdsson and Burnley’s Johann Berg Gudmundsson are both missing and there is a shortage of quality still present.
Birkir Bjarnason of Brescia and Gothenburg’s Kolbeinn Sigporsson have netted 40 international goals between them but the rest of the squad only 11 combined.
The visitors tend to be well-drilled defensively, though, so this may be tight for a while.
Let’s add 16/5 for Draw HT/Poland FT to our Poland vs Iceland betting tips.
POLAND 1-1 Russia – Swierczok
Faroe Islands 0-1 ICELAND – Anderson
Head-to-head: Poland 4-2 Iceland, Poland 3-2 Iceland, Iceland 1-1 Poland
