Analysis of Poland
After 4 wins and 1 loss, the home team is currently in the 1st position, with 12 points won. In the last match, they have lost (2‑0) in an away match against Slovenia, after in the previous round they have won (4‑0) at home against Israel. This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses in away matches, with 22 goals scored and 15 conceded; against 5 wins, 3 draws and 7 losses at their stadium, with 23 goals scored and 19 conceded. In the last 10 home matches Poland has won 3, tied 2 and lost 5. They have presented defensive consistency, since they have only suffered goals in 1 of the last 5 matches, and their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored goals in 4 of the last 5 matches for this competition. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have never been able to turn the score around. In the last 15 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 10 of their 23 goals between minutes (76’‑90′).
If the Poles are leading their group it is because of the good work being done and the idea is to keep it that way. To reach the Euro is their big wish and at least so far they have been successfully following their path. They will try to stay the way they are, being consistent and not wasting silly points. So we can expect Poland to go after a good result and, at home, only the victory matters. In this match the best players available will be on the field.
Analysis of Austria
The away team is currently in the 2nd position, with 9 points won, after 3 wins and 2 losses. In the penultimate round, they have won an away match against FYR Macedonia by (1‑4). In the last round, they have won a home match against Latvia by (6‑0). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 7 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 26 goals scored and 20 conceded; against 10 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 25 goals scored and 10 conceded.

The Austrian national team is dreaming of a place in the European Cup, but to get there they will have to show a lot of commitment to the games that remain. No more room for error and now it doesn’t matter where they play or who their opponent will be. This means they need good results and it is logical that they will pursue it in the current round. Of course, facing the leader in his domain makes their life more complicated, but they need to do their part. Therefore, they should pay attention and have intelligence throughout the duel, because only that way they can have a positive score. In this match the best players available will be on the field.
