Why Poland will Beat Sweden
Poland had won 3 in a row. But a 1-2 loss to Hungary has forced Robert Lewandowski and his mates to have play into the World Cup. The 1-1 draw versus Scotland was a friendly, which means Poland used the match to ready for this. On their home pitch, the Polish should be very difficult to beat. If Lewandowski is on, Sweden will find it difficult to keep one of the best strikers in the world from scoring at least 1 goal.

Final Betting Analysis: Sweden at Poland
Poland has a big advantage because this happens at Silesian Stadium. But history says Sweden takes this.
The Swedes have won the last 6 head-to-heads, including beating Poland 3-2 at EURO 2020 even though Lewandowski scored a couple of goals. Not only that, but Sweden played fantastic against a very good soccer team in the Czech Republic.
The Swedes held possession 57% of the time. Sweden was aggressive on defense, committing 26 fouls, but gained just 5 yellow cards.
Sweden, no doubt, will play Poland differently. Expect the Swedes to use Poland’s attack against it. Sweden can play lose because this is a road game and they’re the underdogs.
They will wait for Poland to push the attack and then will counter. Eventually, one of the counters will lead to a goal. Sweden moneyline is the play.
