On Thursday night, Poland entertain Albania at PGE Narodowy in Warsaw for a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier. The Albanians are currently two points above the Poles in a very competitive Group I. England lead the way and are red-hot favourites to finish top, but the race for second and a play-off berth could go to the wire. Will Poland pick up a crucial three points on home soil, or can Albania cause an upset and move on to nine points? We have the best odds and predictions.

Poland Preview – Can the Poles return to winning ways?

Paulo Sousa’s Poland were fancied to finish in the top two of Group I before a ball was kicked. However, the Poles have taken just four points from their opening three matches, sitting in fourth place as a result.

On the opening matchday, Poland were involved in a six-goal thriller with Hungary, drawing 3-3 in Budapest. The White and Reds eased to a 3-0 home win over minnows Andorra in game two, but they were beaten 2-1 by England at Wembley Stadium in their last qualifier.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1517 GMT, Tuesday 1 September)

This could be a make-or-break game for Poland. Defeat could leave them six points behind second, while a win could close the gap. Sousa’s side are available at 1/2 to pick up a precious three points.

Albania Preview – Will the Albanians leave Poland with a positive result?

After three games, Albania have been very competitive in Group I. The Albanians have improved drastically in recent years, and could they reach their first ever World Cup? So far, Edoardo Reja’s men have taken six points from a possible nine.

The Red and Blacks opened with a hard-fought 1-0 away win in Andorra before losing 2-0 at home to Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions. On matchday three, Albania picked up a 2-0 victory against San Marino in Serravalle.
