Poland’s Euro 2020 campaign began very poorly with a surprise defeat to Slovakia and it didn’t get much better.
The 1-1 draw with Spain was the highlight of Poland’s tournament who were nowhere near positive enough to earn a place in the Round of 16.
Robert Lewandowski showed his quality with two very taken goals against Sweden but the defence did not back him up, letting in three in a closing defeat that will surely see the end of Paulo Sousa’s time as Poland manager.

Jerzy Brzęczek’s side overcame stern tests in the form of Slovenia, North Macedonia and Austria but topped Euro 2020 Qualifying Group G.
The Eagles only lost once during qualifying, acquiring 25 points from their 10 games played and only conceding 5 goals to top the group.
Having reached the last 8 at Euro 2016, they will believe they can kick on at Euro 2020 as they seek their first ever major tournament triumph.
The White and Red find themselves in Euro 2020 Group E alongside Spain, Sweden and Slovakia.
Poland Euro Betting Odds & Preview
Topping Euro 2020 qualifying group G will be a huge boost for Poland who have become one of the most difficult teams to beat in Europe in recent times.
With only 5 goals conceded from their qualifying campaign, their defence is watertight. In addition, they have one of the world’s premiere strikers in their ranks, in the form of Robert Lewandowski.
Euro 2020 Group E presents Poland with a realistic chance of progressing. Playing Spain in Bilbao will be their toughest test but their games against Sweden and Slovakia will be crucial to their chances.
Poland will fancy their chances of progressing from Euro 2020 Group E. They got beyond the group stages at Euro 2016 and they will be desperate to back that up here. Poland are 1/2 with Virgin Bet to progress from Euro 2020 Group E in any capacity.
Defensively, Poland are one of the strongest sides in the competition. If they can nullify Spain and get a result, winning the group doesn’t look beyond them. Poland are 6/1 with bet365* to win Euro 2020 Group E.
Eventual champions Portugal knocked out Poland in the last 8 of Euro 2016 following an agonising penalty shootout. Jerzy Brzęczek’s side will be eager to back that performance up at Euro 2020. Poland are 4/1 with 888sport to be eliminated at the quarter-final stage of Euro 2020.
Poland Euro 2020 Odds
- Two third place finishes at the FIFA World Cup (1974 & 1982) is as close as Poland have come to ever winning a major tournament. This current generation of players is as good as they have had for some time and they could spring a surprise or two at Euro 2020. Poland are 80/1 with bet365* to win Euro 2020.
- Few strikers in world football possess the quality in front of goal than Robert Lewandowski. The Bayern Munich forward is a goal machine and if Poland are to go deep at Euro 2020, he will need to be banging the goals in. Robert Lewandowski is 33/1 with BetVictor to win the Golden Boot at Euro 2020.
