In the 8th round of Euro 2024 qualifiers in Group E, the Polish national team takes on Moldova at Warsaw’s PGE National Stadium. This match holds significant importance for Polish football enthusiasts, potentially shaping their path to the continental championships. The game kicks off at 8:45 PM.
Poland’s quest for a place in Euro 2024 has been met with mixed results so far. They opened with a tough 1-3 defeat to the Czech Republic in Prague, followed by a 1-0 victory over Albania in March. However, a surprising 2-3 loss to Moldova in June heightened the pressure.
After a few months’ break, Poland secured a 2-0 win against the Faroe Islands at PGE National Stadium, although it was a challenging victory. Three days later, they faced disappointment with a 0-2 loss to Albania.
Nonetheless, Poland rebounded with a crucial 2-0 win over the Faroe Islands, bringing their point tally to nine. This secured them the second position in Group E, thanks in part to the Czech Republic’s loss to Albania.
Now, the Polish team faces two pivotal matches against Moldova and the Czech Republic. A double win in these fixtures (on October 15th against Moldova and on November 17th against the Czech Republic) would guarantee Poland a spot in Euro 2024, irrespective of other group results. The Moldova match is of paramount importance to Poland’s aspirations.
Even if Poland doesn’t clinch the top spot in the group, they still have a chance at the European Championships. In such a scenario, the team would likely compete in playoffs based on the results from the last edition of the Nations League.
