Poland vs. Netherlands Betting Preview – Nations League, November 18, 2020

| November 16, 2020 5:18 am PDT

It is all to play for in this group, as Poland meet the Netherlands with both sides hoping that Bosnia can do them a favor by getting a result against leaders Italy.

Poland is a point behind its opponents here in the standings but will feel that home field advantage could play an important part.

Poland to Win +238
The Draw +252
Netherlands to Win +104

Poland continues to be underrated when it comes to playing against the best of Europe – and MyBookie has gone along with that way of thinking by offering some attractive looking odds for a home win on Wednesday. Poland can still win this group and will fancy its chances against an injury-hit Dutch squad.

Assessing the Teams

A more unfamiliar Italy starting eleven was able to overcome Poland at the weekend but there is still a lot to like about Jerzy Brzeczek’s side – and there is always the threat of Robert Lewandowski to consider for any opposing team. Three points here may still not be good enough to win the group but there will be no lack of effort from the home side on Wednesday.

This has been a very close race between the top three in the group and Poland may have surprised a few people by being able to keep up with Italy and the Netherlands. All the games between the three have been tight affairs – and there is nothing to suggest that this week’s meeting will not be exactly the same.

The Netherlands only beat Poland by a single goal in the reverse fixture back in September. Spurs winger Stephen Bergwjin scored the only goal that day but he is just one of a host of injuries that new boss Frank De Boer has to deal with as this Nations League group stage draws to a close.

De Boer was not a universally popular choice as Ronald Koeman’s replacement and failed to win any of his first four games in charge. The victory over Bosnia on Sunday finally put that unwanted record to rest, but there is not the usual level of confidence in the Dutch squad at the moment – and Poland could capitalize on that.

  • Poland to Win
    +238

With Italy a point ahead at the top of the group, neither of these two sides can rely on a draw here. Even a win might not be enough, so this could be a very exciting game of soccer to enjoy.

Poland always plays as if it has something to prove, so I feel that it will end up victorious. We will then have to wait to see how Italy gets on to see who makes next year’s finals.
