Poland and Austria are set to clash in a crucial Euro 2024 Group D encounter at the Olympiastadion in Berlin on June 21, 2024.

Both teams are eager to secure a victory after suffering defeats in their opening matches. Poland lost 2-1 to the Netherlands, while Austria was narrowly beaten 1-0 by France.

Poland's Form and Team News

Poland's performance against the Netherlands showed promise despite the absence of star striker Robert Lewandowski.

Adam Buksa's header gave Poland an early lead, but they couldn't hold on and eventually succumbed to a 2-1 defeat.

This loss ended their eight-match unbeaten streak. Coach Michal Probierz will be keen to get back to winning ways and is hopeful of Lewandowski's return for this match.

Austria's Form and Team News

Austria also came close to securing a point against France but ultimately lost due to an own goal by Max Wober.

Despite this setback, Austria has shown significant improvement under coach Ralf Rangnick, who will look to key players like Marko Arnautovic and Marcel Sabitzer to deliver in this crucial tie.

Head-to-Head and Historical Context

Poland and Austria have a storied past with only two meetings in the past 16 years.

Poland emerged victorious in a Euro 2020 qualifier, while the reverse fixture ended in a goalless draw. This historical context adds an extra layer of intrigue to this encounter.

Match Prediction

Given both teams' need to avoid another defeat, this match is expected to be tense and closely contested.

Poland's potential boost from Lewandowski's return could be crucial, but Austria's solid recent form cannot be overlooked.

Our Prediction: Poland 1-1 Austria
