Azzurri have suffered a 2-0 loss to Argentina and held the Three Lions to a 1-1 draw in two March outings in England, going on to beat Saudi Arabia in May. There have been improvements in Roberto Mancini’s side but we’ve then seen a 3-1 loss in France and an unconvincing 1-1 draw against Netherlands in front of the home crowd in Torino – where they conceded a last-minute equalizer.

Poland will now hope to cause a similar upset in Bologna but they’ve seen a similar spell of form and an early exit at the World Cup, where losses to Senegal and Colombia meant a ticket back home and the narrow 0-1 win over Japan was hardly a consolation. Jerzy Brzeczek will now want a strong start but the away day to Stadio Renato Dall’Ara will be no walk in the park.

Italy vs Poland: Head-to-head

  • The sides have last met in November 2011 and Italy have snatched a 0-2 win at Stadion Miejski in Wroclaw.
  • Azzurri have earned five wins and six draws in 14 games, with just three losses on records in head-to-head matches against Poland.
  • Poland have never bagged a win in Italy.

Italy vs Poland: Prediction

We will now back Italians to build on such head-to-head records and retain consistency early in the competition with important home points, going for a Home win at priced at 3/4 (1.75) odd.

We have seen them picking it up under Roberto Mancini and we do hope they can show off as a tough side in front of the home crowd here.

However, beating Poland led by Robert Lewandowski will be no easy task either and we feel the visitors will make a mark too as we stick our necks out for a good-looking Over 2.5 goals at the odds of 3/2 (2.50)

The Poles have the firepower upfront and have been regularly finding the net and Italy could now have to outgun them to secure the points.
