England have gone 17 games against Poland without defeat since a famous 1973 loss in World Cup qualifying, winning 11 of those subsequent meetings.
However, matches between these teams are traditionally competitive, including March’s 2-1 Wembley victory for the Three Lions.
We’re going with Gareth Southgate’s side to prevail and both teams to score again at 29/10 for our first Poland vs England prediction.
A Look At Poland’s Betting Odds
Poland have picked up 10 points from their other four fixtures in Group I, starting out with a 3-3 draw in Hungary.
Andorra were brushed aside 3-0, Albania beaten 4-1 and Sunday saw a 7-1 rout of San Marino in Serravalle.
The Eagles will be delighted to have Robert Lewandowski on song and he has netted six times so far.
Adam Buksa hit a hat-trick over the weekend and this typically athletic Poland team looks in fine spirits.
Euro 2020 sadly proved yet another disappointing major tournament, although they did draw 1-1 with Spain and were only undone by a stoppage-time sickener when losing 3-2 to Sweden.
Everything suggests the Poles should give England a good work-out before possibly coming up just short.
Looking at the Poland vs England odds, we like 15/2 for a repeat of the 2-1 scoreline in London from six months ago.
A Look At England’s Betting Odds
England have become ruthlessly efficient during qualifying campaigns and have already rattled off five straight wins in this pool.
San Marino, Albania, Hungary and Andorra have been brushed aside by an aggregate scoreline of 15-0.
The Three Lions have taken a little while to warm up in back-to-back 4-0 victories over Hungary and Andorra during the current international break, though.
Seven of those goals were scored in the second half, as England responded resolutely to their Euro 2020 final penalty shoot-out heartbreak.
We were on more goals to be scored after the break in our Sunday preview and 23/20 for that bet to come in once more makes sense.
Another victory here is expected, although Southgate was impressed by Poland at Wembley, when they were without Bayern Munich sharpshooter Lewandowski through injury.
“They played at Wembley without him and they gave a very good account of themselves,” Southgate said. “We only scored really late on in the game to win it.
“We absolutely respect what he brings and we know what a threat he is, but they’ve got some other very dangerous players as well.”
Let’s finish off our Poland vs England betting tips by taking 10/3 for Draw HT/England FT.
