Poland vs Colombia | Bettting Tips, Predictions & Odds
Poland take on Colombia in Group G on Sunday evening, with both sides knowing that another defeat would end their campaign before it really even began. In what is perhaps the most competitive group in Russia this summer, this promises to be yet another tight affair in Kazan.
Poland and Colombia go head-to-head at the Kazan Arena on Sunday evening, with the two teams in Group G without a point to their name knowing that they must earn a positive result if they are to have any chance of qualifying for the knockout stage of the World Cup. With little separating the duo ahead of kick-off, it could well come down to a moment of magic or a defensive mistake during the 90 minutes. For those still unsure of who to back ahead of kick-off, be sure to check out our top betting tip below. However, let’s first take a closer look at the two teams, starting with Poland.
Poland Team News & Form
Following their disappointing defeat against Senegal in their opening match, Poland are likely to play in a more attacking manner against Colombia, with the home side requiring more from forward Robert Lewandowski, their top scorer during qualifying. Elsewhere, AS Monaco defender Kamil Glik is unlikely to feature despite returning to training, meaning that Thiago Cionek will most likely keep his place in the starting eleven.
Colombia Team News & Form
Colombia are likely to welcome back Bayern Munich star James Rodriguez to their starting line-up following the midfielder’s minor injury, while manager José Pékerman is unlikely to change much elsewhere, despite their defeat against Japan. The likes of Radamel Falcao and Juan Quintero offer quality in the final third for the away side, who showed their class with a victory over France back in March this year.
Poland vs Colombia Head to Head
The two nations have met on five occasions in the past, with a draw having never been played out between Poland and Colombia. However, it is Colombia who have won the last three meetings between the duo, including a 2-1 success in a friendly match between the two back in 2006. However, with many of their encounters having come over two decades ago, little can be read into their head-to-head record.
