Tipster’s Angle

Sweden has outplayed Poland so far but this is a different ball game as both the teams are doing pretty well in the international circuit. This match is expected to be a high-scoring thriller with goals at both ends.

Tip: Total Goals Over 2 @ 1.93

In the last nine matches that Poland had played across all competitions, over two goals were scored in eight of those matches. Sweden has seen over two goals in eight of the last ten matches that they have played across competitions. In the last 4 head to head matches, a total of 12 goals were scored at an average of 3 goals per match. Also, under two goals were scored in none of those matches. So, at least two goals will be scored at 1.93 odds available at the Dafabet sportsbook.

Tip: Sweden To Win or Draw @ 1.55

Poland has won one match and Sweden has won as many as five matches in the last six head-to-head matches. Poland has won five matches, drawn two matches, and lost two matches in the last nine matches that they have played across competitions. Sweden on the other hand has won six matches and lost four matches in the last ten matches that they have played across competitions. So it is very likely that Sweden will win it in regular time or take it to extra-time at 1.55 odds available at the Betway sportsbook.


The fate of this match might be decided in the extra time or penalties as this is the last chance for these two teams to make it to the world cup in Qatar later this year. Whoever wins this match will be a deserving team to qualify.
