  • Venue: Cardiff City Stadium (Cardiff (Caerdydd))

UEFA Nations League A, Group 4 comes to a conclusion on Sunday as Wales welcomes Poland to Cardiff City Stadium, knowing only a win will do if they are to avoid relegation to League B. 

Both sides suffered midweek defeats against Belgium and Netherlands, respectively, and with just 5 points collected between them, Poland know a draw will be enough to secure their status in League A. 

Wales vs Poland Betting Tips: Wales to win/BTTS

Despite performing well in this UNL campaign, Wales have collected just 1 point from 5 matches however they have shown, even in defeat, that they are not to be under-estimated with the WC set to kick off in less than two months.

On their own patch, Wales have lost just 1 of their last 8 matches, including vital WC qualifying wins against Austria and Ukraine, while they held Belgium to a draw in their most recent home UNL contest.

Poland arrives in Wales on the back of a disappointing 2:0 home loss to Netherlands, that, their third loss in four matches and with just 1 point picked up during that period, now must avoid defeat to secure their status in the top division.

On the road, the Poles have seen BTTS in 7 of their last 8 away matches, and a similar outcome could be on the cards on Sunday, with Wales also seeing that outcome in 6 of their last 7 matches in Cardiff. 

With the Welsh needing a win, Poland might be tempted to implement a defensive formation, but Wales have only failed to score in 1 of their last 18 home competitive fixtures since 2017, suggesting the Poles will need to score in order to get the result they need. Poland have scored in their last 9 away competitive fixtures, and we expect that record to be maintained on Sunday.

Ultimately, this should prove a decent and potentially entertaining affair where we do give the edge to a Wales side that has performed well in recent outings and have picked up big wins recently. Still, given the goal stats, BTTS has to be the safer selection.

Gareth Bale will be hoping for more minutes, but the LAFC forward may have to settle for a place on the bench oncemore.

Without a win in 4, including a 6:1 loss in Belgium, Head Coach Michniewicz could be tempted to make some changes to his starting lineup. 

Robert Lewandowksi will lead the Polish attack. However, Juventus forward Arkadiusz Milik could come into the side, having appeared as a second-half substitute against the Netherlands.
