Poland can beat Belgium If Poland v Belgium doesn't set the pulses racing, then Italy v Spain certainly should. Jamie Pacheco talks us through the opening day's fixtures- According lớn the betting tips soccer page! Poland U21 v Belgium U21 Sunday June 16, 14:30 Live on Sky Sports Football Put yourself in Pole position by opposing the Belgians Poland are here by virtue of getting the better of Portugal over a two-legged play-off, winning 3-1 at home and losing 1-0 away. They were somewhat unlucky to not having qualified directly, getting a very respectable 22 points in Group 3, where they remained unbeaten with six wins and four draws and finishing just one point behind Denmark. You can prefer to the soccer today page! Belgium on the other hand, won their group, courtesy of eight wins and two draws. The five goals they conceded was bettered only by England in the whole of qualifying, who let in four. The head-to-head record here isn't going to give us much of a clue as lớn what might happen here because...there isn't one. You'd have to go back lớn 2003 for the last time they played each other and that was a friendly, so doesn't count anyway. Belgium are even-money favourites going into the game but it's hard to see why they're that short. Given this is the first time they've been here since 2007, I guess it was the manner in which they qualified that got the odds-compilers a bit cautious; but it was a pretty easy group they were in with the likes of Malta and Cyprus for company. Poland, who would surely have learnt from their mistakes from two years ago when they were poor as hosts, did it the hard way. But getting the better of Portugal over two legs is no easy feat. Another indication that they're a tough nut lớn crack was their recent 1-1 away draw against an excellent England side. A friendly yes, but England fielded a strong team that night. We've mentioned Belgium's strong defensive record already and it will certainly have lớn be at its best lớn keep Polish captain Dawid Kownacki in check. The Sampdoria forward, currently on loan at F Dusselforf, was the top scorer in the whole of the qualifying competition with 11 goals, 10 in the Group Stages and one in that play-off against Portugal. With Belgium in somewhat unchartered territory after so many years absent from this competition, they may feel the pressure. More lớn the point, there doesn't seem to be that much between them, as proven by the fact that going into qualifying they were Ranked 16 and 17 respectively in the UEFA charts. Keep the draw and the Poland win onside by going with the Poles on the Double Chance market.
