Poland steamrolled through the World Cup qualifiers and easily booked their ticket to the main event. They have played a lot of friendlies since then, all at home, but have not been as strong. They will now play their final match in Warsow, where they will play host to minnows Lithuania on Tuesday. Poland need a good performance before packing their bags for Russia and the main event.

Spread: Poland -1.5
Total: 2.75 Goals
Poland were actually in a pretty easy group in the World Cup qualifiers, along with Denmark, Montenegro, Romania, Armenia and Kazakhstan. They did an excellent job with just one loss (8-1-1), and comfortably booked their ticket. Moreover, forward Robert Lewandowski was the top scorer of the qualifiers with 16 goals. Poland have played five friendlies since then (1-2-2), and only defeated South Korea in the process. In their last match they played against a Chile side who didn’t have any of their stars. Poland took an early two-goal lead, but got complacent and were eventually equalized.
On the other hand, Lithuania were never going to make it to the World Cup, as they have a really weak team. They finished at the 5th spot of Group F (1-6-3), defeating only Malta in the process. It wasn’t a very hard group either with England, Slovakia, Slovenia and Scotland. Which goes to show how weak Lithuania are. In any case, they literally have no recognizable players in their roster and are just trying to do their best. They suffer a lot up front, where they struggle a lot in order to score goals.
Poland will play their final warm-up match in front of their home crowd, hoping for a big win to gain some momentum. Lithuania are not expected to cause any problems here, so Poland should be able to record a solid win.
Poland have not fared well in their friendlies so far, and they need a moral injection right about now. They should be able to cover the spread against a really weak side here, so I will back them up here.
International Friendly Poland vs Lithuania Prediction: Poland -1.5 (-120)
