With just one win between them in 10 games, Wales and Poland will be looking to avoid relegation when they play each other on Sunday. Our sportsbook offers a great range of betting markets and props for the Nations League.
Wales: Zero UNL Wins
With just one point to their name in five fixtures, Rob Page’s side sits bottom of their UEFA Nations League group. With just one group game remaining, Wales trails Poland by three points, so this clash is a must-win for the hosts.
Wales looks set to be without experienced players Joe Allen, Ben Davies, and Aaron Ramsey, while the team boss Rob Page must decide whether to risk Gareth Bale, who joined up with the squad late due to MLS action. The superstar striker came off the bench and played 25 minutes against Belgium, failing to impact the final result.
Wales qualified for their first World Cup since 1958 earlier in the summer, and with the 2022 edition edging closer and closer, they must build some momentum going into Qatar. It has been a disappointing campaign for Page’s side in terms of results, but a glance at the table arguably does not do justice to Wales’ journey so far.
Each of their three defeats has been by a slender one-goal margin. Playing at home should boost their chances, as should his ability to call upon Bale from the start, but if you’re betting online, you should avoid the moneyline and focus on the goals market.
Poland: Winless in Four Games
Poland is limping toward the end of their campaign, with Thursday’s 2-0 defeat to the Netherlands being their fourth consecutive winless game. They also failed to find the back of the net in two consecutive fixtures. This last happened in 2019, but they haven’t lost three consecutive games since 2018.
They are now sitting third in the standings with just four points and they need at least one point from their final group match to secure their League A spot for another UNL campaign. As one of 13 European countries heading to the World Cup in less than two months, Poland will use their final Nations League fixture as preparation for their second successive appearance on the biggest football stage.
Poland will be without right-back Matty Cash due to injury. Star striker Robert Lewandowski, who has already scored 11 goals in just eight games since joining Barcelona over the summer, is expected to lead the attack. Wingers Sebastian Szymanski and Nicola Zalewski could provide support.
Lewandowski failed to find the back of the net in the last two matches for his country, something that never happened in 2022 and just once in 2021. It’s time for him to shine once again, so we will include him in our soccer picks and parlays.
Wales vs Poland Head-to-Head
Wales is the last team against which Poland triumphed. Poland is not regarded as a good traveling team and they’re winless in three away internationals this calendar year, including their last trip to the United Kingdom when they were kept to a 1-1 draw by Scotland. While they only need a draw to preserve their Group A spot, they haven’t beaten a side ranked inside FIFA’s top 50 in an away game since beating Austria 1-0 in March 2019. Poland has scored at least once in 21 of their previous 23 games across all competitions.

Wales vs Poland Prediction
The hosts enter this clash as slight favorites, priced at +165 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds, while the goal line is set at two.
Poland has the upper hand on their opponents, not only because they managed to beat them in the reverse fixture, but also because they need just one point to secure their League A spot. Lewandowski should finally find the back of the net for the visitors and help them return home with at least one point. Wales has scored two goals just once in their previous seven games across all competitions. We don’t expect Poland to lose this clash, but we’re not going for a straight win.
