Poland’s squad are lacking experience of the World Cup Finals after failing to qualify in 2010 and 2014, but suggested at Euro 2016 that they are capable of giving most teams a game by going unbeaten in 5 games before losing out on Penalties to Portugal.
However, as they only scored 4 goals in those 5 games at Euro 2016, there’s a chance the Poland Top Scorer Market could be won by a player scoring as little as two goals.
2018 World Cup Poland Top Scorer Betting Guide
Robert Lewandowski 2/5, Arkadiuasz Milik 6/1, Kamil Grosicki 8/1, Jakub Blaszcyowski 10/1
Lewandowski hasn’t had chance to showcase his talents at a World Cup yet, but the 29-year-old is one of Europe’s most prolific and consistent strikers. He scored 74 goals for Borussia Dortmund in 131 games, and averages 9 goals in every 11 games for Bayern Munich. He’s also scored 51 goals in 91 games for Poland, scoring 28 goals in his last 25 games for his country, and an amazing 16 goals in 10 games in helping Poland qualify for Russia 2018. He’s by far Poland’s most likely source of goals at the World Cup, though it’s worth noting he scored only 1 of Poland’s 4 goals in regulation play at Euro 2016.
23-year-old Milik scored the only goal in Poland’s 1-0 win over Northern Ireland at Euro 2016 but, though he has scored 12 goals in 36 games for Poland, he’s scored just 2 in his last 15 games for his country. He currently scores around 1 in every 3 games for Napoli, but scored more frequently for previous club Ajax with 32 goals in 53 games.
29-year-old winger who was Poland’s second-highest scorer in qualifying with 3 goals, and has scored 11 goals in 55 games for Poland. That’s slightly better than the 1 goal in 6 games average that he has enjoyed for the clubs he has played for, with his current club being English Premier League side Hull City.
32-year-old winger who has scored 19 goals in 97 games for Poland, but only one of those was in World Cup Qualifying. Meanwhile, he has averaged around 1 goal in every 8 games for his various club sides. Despite that, he was Poland’s top scorer at Euro 2016 with 2 goals.
The fact that Jakub Blaszcyowski was Poland’s top scorer at Euro 2016 with just 2 goals shows what can happen in this kind of top scorer markets but, with Poland scoring 28 goals in 10 qualifying matches, there’s every chance they’ll score more than the four goals they scored at Euro 2016. If that’s the case, then Robert Lewandowski is by far the most likely player to score them – it’s just a question of whether you’re happy to take 2/5 about him.
