Poland Portugal Prediction comes front and center into our vantage point this morning at HRWager. We are facing a changing of the guard in the hierarchy of men’s soccer. Chile is now dominant in the Americas. Europe has seen England go down in a shocker to Iceland to close the round of sixteen. Now Poland is on the rise while Portugal is trying to hold onto their place in the elite of Europe. Which side will get the profit in our bankroll for this match that starts at 3PM on Thursday the 30th?
Poland Portugal : Working Hard
Portugal has muted the flamboyance and resorted to grinding out wins. To their credit, they did what was necessary to get past Croatia. Portugal will have to focus on their flank defense in this one. Poland has the speed and skill to exploit the edges of the field. Up the gut is where Portugal will have the advantage. Penetrating the Polish defense will be a task. Except for that wild bicycle kick by a Swiss player, the Poles have remained perfect in stopping the ball. Total for this game is only 1/2. Chalk is on the over side at -167/+152.
Lewandowski Has to Shine
Poland pins their hopes mostly on their defense. They got through against the Swiss on penalty kicks. This was disappointing as Poland was the better team on the pitch and should have closed it out before that stage was necessary. The Bayern Munich player, Robert Lewandowski, has to come through and be the striker we have all seen in the past. Three way line has Portugal at +128 ML with the Draw at +203 and the Poles tagging in at +298 for the win in the 90 minutes plus stoppage time aspect. To advance, Portugal is a -175 favorite here.
This is star power and defensive soccer. Can Ronaldo find the fire he had against Hungary? Lewandowski has been dreadful to this point but the Polish defense has been lights out. All things are pretty equal here. Draw three way line at +203 is the path to profit here. Good fortune and we will see you tomorrow here at HRWager.
