Poland host Denmark as they search for their first win in 2018 World Cup Qualifiers. The Polish side locks horns with Group E topper at the prestigious PGE Narodowy stadium in Warsaw.
Poland played a 2 nil draw with Kazakhstan in their first world qualifier clash. The White and Red squandered a 2 goal lead as they settled for a point at Astana Arena. Poland sits 2nd on the Group E log with a point from 1 game, 2 points behind leader and Saturday opponent i.e. Denmark.
Denmark started their World Cup qualifiers campaign with a 1-0 triumph over Armenia at the Telia Parken stadium in Copenhagen. Eriksen 17 minute strike was all the Danish Dyanmite needed to garner their first win. Moreover, Eriksen missed a penalty kick in the 73rd minute of same encounter. Denmark sits top of the group with 3 points, 2 point ahead of Poland going into this game.

Poland vs Denmark: Prediction
Two sides with a lot of quality and flare. Poland lost just one of their last 5 world cup qualifiers games played at home, while the Danish Dynamite lost one of the last 5 World Cup Qualifiers games played away. This makes the game evenly poised with promising end to end and creative action.
Therefore, I will predict a score draw in this encounter.
