Poland come calling at Cardiff City Stadium for their final outing in the UEFA Nations League this season against home side Wales on Sunday. Poland beat Wales twice in their most recent meetings, as they claimed wins by 2-1 and 1-0, respectively.

Before the final round of group games Wales are looking at one point as number four, while Poland stares at four points as number three.

Wales step into their next home match on Sunday having scored a nice average of 1.6 goals in ten matches. They managed a total of 16 goals, while also allowing 14 goals against. That is an average of 1.4 goals against per match. They were able to hang on to a clean sheet one times in those matches.

Wales vs Poland Prediction

A draw is the best Wales can show from their last three games, where they came up short in a 1-2 defeat against Netherlands. A1-1 draw with Belgium followed before they were defeated 3-2 by Netherlands. Wales won twice in their past six home matches in which they also drew three and lost one. They hit the target seven times and conceded six goals.

In their past three games, Poland lost 6-1 against Belgium, drew 2-2 with Netherlands, and lost 0-1 against Belgium. Poland won half their previous six away matches, as well as seeing two draws and suffering one defeat. They scored 16 goals whilst conceding 11.

Wales crawled through the group stages on just four points, which was nevertheless enough to take first place. While obviously hard to break down, they have yet to put their full potential at display.

Wales and Poland team up this coming Sunday in a match both will hate to lose. This could be a match that fizzles out in a draw, with both very focused on not risky anything at all.
