The Eagles are still in a poor run of form. In their opening match in the group they drew Italy at home. The game would have given them 3 points if they didn’t concede the penalty which helped the Blues to draw level. Polish side has a number of players who play in top leagues of Europe. Lewandowski, Milik, Blaszczykowski and Glik had an average club season until now.

In their recent UNL match a late flurry of goals couldn’t save them from defeat against Portugal. The final score line read 3-2 in favor of the Navigators.

The story of Italy is heart-breaking for their fans. The four time World Champions are a group of dejected players who are playing like a group of men with no purpose. After failing to reach Russia which was a shocker to the footballing world, Roberto Mancini took charge this year

To rebuild the team from the ashes, he has brought in some good talent and is continuing with experiments to formulate a winning combination. Chelsea midfielder Jorginho and Juventus forward Bernardeschi are a few among these recent recruits.

Poland vs Italy Head to head

In the group opener, Poland managed to draw Italy 1-1 at Bologna. Piotr Zielinski put the Eagles in front with a first half strike. Italians were saved from shame by Jorginho who converted spot-kick in 78th minute.

Between 1982 and 2018, they met in 5 competitive matches. The home side are yet to win but the Azzurri have 3 wins.

Poland vs Italy Prediction

Robert Lewandowski is one of the best strikers in the game right now without doubt. But his recent performances for his nation says otherwise. Russian WC was one to forget for him. He couldn’t do much when his team lost to Senegal and Colombia. Coach Jerzy Brzęczek needs his star player to rise up to the occasion in UNL.

Bernardeschi and Lorenzo Insigne will have to carry their form from Seria A to the Nations League in order to face tough opponents like Portugal and Poland.

The score line may be an exact copy of the away fixture at Italy. Both teams will have chances and the team with a better attacking display may win.
