A stroll in the park for Poland

A look at the last five matches would suggest Poland are going through a wobble with just one win during that time. It's not quite that simple though because, at home, they've only lost one in 10 with six wins including three in their last five. Iceland aren't pulling up any trees at the moment either and their away record across the previous 10 games reads as three wins and seven defeats. Those stats point to a Poland win but, of course, we need to find an extra goal too; five of Poland's six aforementioned home wins have been by more than one goal – that includes their last four victories; the combined score in those games? 13-1. Three of Iceland's last four away defeats have been by a margin larger than one as well.

A clean sheet for someone

When you look at the general score lines these two nations have been involved in then you are led down the path that at least one of them will fail to score. Again, we'll start with Poland's home form. From their last 10 games only four have seen both teams score. For Iceland, it's a straight split as five where both teams have scored and five where they haven't. The main statistic that gives the bet value is the fact that Poland's last three home wins have been to nil.

A friendly full of goals

We might have made the prediction that someone – most likely Iceland – will blank in this match but that doesn't mean we don't believe there will be goals. Four of Poland's last five matches have seen over 2.5 goals; the average per game in that time is 3.4 goals. Iceland's results in the same period aren't quite as convincing but they're still leaning that way with three from five games seeing at least three goals. Again, their average exceeds 2.5 as well with it standing at 3.0.

Poland vs Iceland: What are the best odds?

Poland to continue strong home form

Poland aren't in any way untouchable on home turf but one loss and three draws in 12 games shows that this is going to be a hard 90 minutes for an Iceland side that have struggled against anyone half decent away from home; they've won three in 10 with those wins coming against Faroe Islands, Liechtenstein and El Salvador. With the greatest respect, they're not nearly as strong as Poland. The Poles probably have the best striker in the world in Robert Lewandowski in their ranks whilst central midfielder Piotr Zielinski of Napoli brings a serious goal threat from midfield too. Assuming Hjortur Hermannsson and Brynjar Ingi Bjarnason start at centre half for Iceland, they'll be up against it to keep Poland at bay.
