The much-criticized UEFA Nations League is preparing for its next matchday. For Poland, as for Portugal, it is the second game. On the first matchday, Portugal was able to put themselves on top of the standings with a victory and in the betting tip against Poland, we see Bernardo Silva and Co. favored. The game will start on Thursday in Poland.
Poland started with a draw in the Nations League – Underdog in the betting tip
The World Cup was a failure for the Polish selection. The knockout in the group stage was not planned and defensive and offensive there was little positive to report. For national teams, there is now in the Nations League the opportunity to make this shame quickly forgotten. Poland was able to get one point against Italy and at least head in the right direction. However, the Portuguese team is star-studded and full of high-quality players and the odds of the bookmakers lead to the fact that Poland is only the underdog. We also regard Poland as too weak to stand up to the Portuguese in the betting tip.
Portugal with a win in the betting tip
Not only the first game but also the second appearance in the Nations League will take place without Cristiano Ronaldo. Portugal still has a decent team and coach Fernando Santos proved this on the first match day against Italy. The second matchday brings the Polish national team as an opponent and Portugal is despite the away game the fancied team. On the one hand, because the squad is staffed at a higher quality, on the other hand, because the latest achievements were better than those of Poland. The reigning European champion combines defensive stability with offensive efficiency and is the fancied team in the betting tip.
Betting Tip Poland vs. Portugal
The official third match day brings the duel between Poland and Portugal. Although Poland can compete in their own country, Lewandowski and his teammates only start with odds of 2.62 and 3.40. Portugal may be comfortable with odds of 2.15 to 2.70 after the opening victory, while a draw has sports betting odds of between 3.03 and 3.30. Our betting tip: Portugal has more quality, is in better shape and surely has the oddsmaker on their side. Accordingly, our bet of choice is a victory of the reigning European champion.
