Poland – Montenegro
Poland hosts Montenegro in a match from Group E of the World Cup qualifiers in Europe.
The Polish team knows that they need just one point to secure the first place in this group. Right now Poland have a three point advantage in front of Denmark. The two sides have the same goal difference, so Poland should avoid losing this match. How we said – even a draw would be enough for them to finish first.
The Polish team have a record of 7 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss in this group so far. They have been beaten only by Denmark so far. Their only draw is surprisingly against the underdog in the group Kazakshtan. In their last five matches they have four wins and one loss, which tells us that they have been pretty solid.
Montenegro still have a theoretical chance to beat Denmark for the second place, but it’s a really long shot. They must win against Poland and in same time the Danish team must lose against Romania in Copenhagen, There’s a small chance that all of this will happen in the same time, how you could suppose.
We should say that Montenegro had a decent campaign so far, just not good enough for qualifying for the World Cup. They have won 16 points in this group and they have a record of 5 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses. In their last game they had something like “a final” against Denmark in Podgorica, but they lost this match with 0-1. This is when they knew that they are not going to qualify for the World Cup.
This game should be a celebration for Poland. Everyone in the country expects that after this match, the Polish team will qualify for the World Cup. They have been the best team in the group and they deserve it for sure.
