Poland vs Romania Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Poland will be aiming to extend their lead at the top of World Cup qualifying E when they welcome Romania at the Stadion Narodowy on Saturday night. Poland managed a hard-fought 1-2 victory in Montenegro last time out thanks to goals from Robert Lewandowski and Lukasz Piszczek. On the contrary, Romania only secured a nil-nil home draw against Denmark, despite the fact that they had some incredible goalscoring opportunities. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Poland are huge favorites to win here and they should have no problems in picking up all three points as Romania’s recent form has been awful. Although, I’m not expecting many goals here as the visitors have failed to score in their most recent four fixture, but they still managed to keep a clean sheet in their both away qualifiers. In addition, Romania are without one of their best strikers in the shape of Denis Alibec.

Poland Preview

After losing on penalties at the hands of the eventual winners, Portugal, in the quarter-finals of the Euro 2016, Poland made a strong start to this World Cup qualifying campaign. They have won four and draw once in their five group fixtures, scoring at least two goals in each of these. The Poles sit comfortable on top of the group E table with 13 points after five rounds, already six points clear off the 2nd-placed and 3rd-placed Montenegro and Denmark respectively. This means that two or three more victories would all but guarantee Poland’s inclusion in the World Cup. On home soil, Poland are undefeated in four fixtures across all competitions, including back-to-back wins over Denmark and Armenia throughout this qualifying campaign. Head-to-head, Poland have won their most recent two meetings with Romania in all competitions, including a comfortable 0-3 away win in the reverse fixture. Robert Lewandowski is definitely a player to watch here, as the 28-year-old striker has enjoyed an excellent season. He has scored 52 goals for his club Bayern Munich and country this season, with eight of those finishes coming in his five group appearances. Anderlecht’s Lukasz Teodorczyk has also enjoyed a decent campaign, while Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik has recovered from his long-term injury and already managed to find the back of the net.

Poland Team News

Kamil Glik is missing the game because of yellow cards, but he will probably be replaced by Igor Lewczuk or Thiago Cionek.

Romania Preview

Meanwhile, Romania kicked off this World Cup qualifying campaign with two disappointing draws against Montenegro and Kazakhstan along with a 0-5 victory over Armenia in the opening three group fixtures. However, they were beaten 0-3 at home by Poland on matchday four and followed this up with a nil-nil home draw against Denmark last time out. Scoring goals have been Romania’s main issue over the past few months as they have failed to find the back of the net in each of their last four games across all competitions. Actually, they hold the second joint worst offensive record in the group with just six goals scored in five games. Romania’s top scorer throughout this qualifying campaign is Reading’s striker Adrian Popa with just two goals under his belt. There was a lot of expectation when Christoph Daum was named as Romania’s new manager, but the German manager has only won once in his opening six games. The Tricolorii find themselves only in 4th spot in the group table tied on 6 points with the 5th-placed Armenia, just one point off the 2nd-placed Montenegro. The good news is that Romania are undefeated in their two away qualifiers, keeping a clean sheet in each of these.

Dragos Grigore and Denis Alibec are both missing through injury ahead of this trip.
