*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Poland have been handed an 84.6% chance of winning Thursday’s semi-final according to the bookmakers and having lost only two of their last nine matches, it’s easy to see why Michal Probierz’s side have been installed as favourites.

With nine defeats in their last 11 fixtures, Estonia’s form could hardly be worse ahead of this week’s crucial playoff, and our free football tips today have opposed them again. If you’re on the lookout for more interesting international predictions, our betting insights page has got you covered.

Poland vs Estonia prediction
Piotr Zielinski could pull the strings for Poland again in midfield – Photo by Icon Sport

Player to watch – Piotr Zielinski

Piotr Zielinski has had an underwhelming campaign at club level for Napoli in 2023/24, however the silky midfielder remains an integral cog in Poland’s machine and he will be tasked with dictating the tempo on Thursday evening.

Zielinski’s experience could be crucial

29-year-old Zielinski has amassed 86 caps for Poland, making him one of the more experienced heads in the squad. The schemer has chipped in with ten goals during his international career, though his eye for a silky pass is much sharper than his finishing skills and he could pick the Estonia defence apart this week.
