Poland hosts Kazakhstan at the Warsaw’s National Stadium in the 2018 World Cup Qualification stage.
Their unexpected loss to Denmark, and a humiliating one, rang the alarm for the Poles.
Their first place in the group seemed certain but that loss combined with their rivals’ win puts their position at risk.
It was the end of their 13-game unbeaten streak from the Polish team who didn’t know what a loss was since last year’s EURO, when they got knocked out by Portugal on penalties.
Poland has 16 points in this group stage, sitting in 1st place, but they saw Montenegro and Denmark getting closer, sitting now just 3 points behind them.
At home, Poland played 3 matches and won every one of them, having scored 8 goals and conceded 4 so far.

Poland vs Kazakhstan – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Their opponent here is the last-place team of their group. Kazakhstan wasn’t able to find their stride here in this stage.
In 7 matches played so far, the team has tied 2 and lost 5, scoring 4 goals and conceding 19 so far. Away from home, they’ve lost all 3 matches they played.
We have another “must-win” match here for the 1st placed team in the group against the last. Poland lost 4-0 but that hasn’t made turned them into a bad team.
The Poles at home are very likely to trounce this worst team in the group.
Kazakhstan doesn’t have enough quality to withstand the strong firepower from the hosts, with Lewandowski and Milik.
The challenge is finding a line with some value.
I like this bet, for the powerful Poles to score at least one goal in each half, I think it seems very reasonable.
