Italy vs Poland
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday, 15 November 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: MAPEI Stadium, Reggio Emilia.
Italy is in a very decent position to win UEFA Nations League A Group 1. They are in full control of their destiny as two potential victories against Poland and Bosnia would guarantee the top spot.
The first step is scheduled for Sunday night at home MAPEI Stadium against The Eagles. Roberto Mancini’s squad is a favourite to snatch all three points judging by the 1.66 odds offered on home victory. The most recent appearances were more than solid for Azzurri.
Poland are currently sitting at the top of table with seven points from four duels. They were a solid opponent to Italy in their first meeting earlier this year, so no one should underestimate them. Advancing to UEFA Nations League semi-finals would be a massive success for this team.
Italy vs Poland Head-to-head
There were 17 head to head matches between these two opponents in the past. The stats are going in favour of Italy who won six and lost only three encounters. Polish fans never got a chance to celebrate a win against Italy on foreign ground, losing three games while four ended without a winner.
31 goals total were scored in previous meetings, which averages 1.82 per duel.
Nine out of the last eleven meetings have ended Under 2.5 FT, which could be a solid option for the goals market.
Italy vs Poland Prediction
Italy warmed up for this clash with a friendly duel against Estonia on Wednesday. There were many changes within the roster. Vincenzo Grifo took advantage of given opportunity and scored two goals in that duel. This Freiburg’s winger is hardly going to get a spot in starting XI against Poland though.
When it comes to last game in UEFA Nations League, Azzurri took one point at home venue against Netherlands. It was an equal match, ending 1-1 with both goals being scored in the first half.
A big majority of Poland’s points were won against Bosnia & Herzegovina (two victories, 2-1 and 3-0). Italians were unable to beat Bosnians at home interestingly.
Robert Lewandowski scored two goals in the most recent home victory, and will surely represent the biggest danger for Mancini’s defense.
We fancy the BTTS option as the primary bet here. Both sides have very efficient offensive lines.
Italy vs Poland Bet Tips
Both teams to score @ 2.10
Lewandowski to score at anytime @ 3.00.
