The Top Betting Tips and Linfield vs Pogon Szczecin Predictions
Pogon Szczecin to Win
One of the things that does not favour the home team is that in their last three games they have not kept a clean sheet. This will be a big problem considering that the away team usually scores in almost every match.
The Polish team won 5 of their last 6 games, 2 of them away. My first Linfield vs Pogon Szczecin prediction is that the guest will win this first h2h.
Under 2.5 Goals
The host knows that their next opponent will be tougher than the previous one, so they are likely to take fewer risks when attacking. This would reduce the amount of scoring opportunities for both teams.
In 8 of Linfield’s last 10 meetings there have been less than 2.5 goals. That makes me think we will see only 1 or 2 goals in this match.
Pogon Szczecin to Score First
The Polish side are favourites to take the lead in this duel. In 5 of their last 6 matches they were the first to score and in each of them they went into the break on top.
In their last match, the North Irish team conceded a goal and were unable to score. It would not be unusual for the away team to open the scoring.
