Poland is hosting Italy at Stadion Energa Gdansk in round 3 in the UEFA Nations League.
Poland is doing well, and after their first loss in the Nations League, Poland has won their last 2 games, and they have scored 7 goals during that stretch while conceding only 2 goals. With 3 points, Poland is in 3rd place in their group in the Nations League. Glik and Grosicki have each scored 1 goal for Poland in the Nations League, while Rybus and Grosicki added 1 assist each. Zielinski and Rybus are both injured, and they will not play in this game. In their last match against Finland, Poland was the better team with 56% of ball possession, 11 shots on goal, and 3 corner kicks, and with a hat-trick from Grosicki, Poland has won this match 5-1. Poland has qualified for the Euro Cup, and they have a good team, and if Lewandowski will stay in his goalscoring form until the Euro Cup, I think Poland will have a good chance to advance past the group stage. Poland hasn’t played against some super strong opponents so far, but we will see how they can handle themselves against a strong team like Italy.
Italy hasn’t lost any of their last 17 games, and they are in fantastic form, especially after beating Moldova a few days ago. Italy was the dominant team in that match with 69% of ball possession, 10 shots on goal, and 9 corner kicks. With 5 scored goals in the first half and 1 more scored goal in the second half, Italy has won this match 6-0. In the Nations League, Italy is in the first place of their group with 4 points, 2 scored goals, and 1 conceded goal. Sensi and Barella have each scored 1 goal for Italy so far, while Insigne and Immobile added 1 assist each. There are no injuries or suspensions in Italy as of right now. Italy is playing great soccer, and their roster is fantastic with players like Immobile, Chiesa, Jorginho, Verratti, Bonucci, and Donnarumma all ready to play. Of course, Italy has already qualified for the Euro Cup, and they will be one of the favorites to win that competition next year. Italy is no longer playing that familiar rough and defensive Italian soccer, and it suits them well. Italy is creating a lot of chances, they have a strong and yet imaginative midfield, and their defense is some of the best in Europe, and when we add Donnarumma to that equation, one of the best goalkeepers in the world, Italy is looking really good.
Italy hasn’t lost any of their last 17 games, while Poland hasn’t lost any of their last 6 home games. Italy is on a 7-game winning streak away from home. Lewandowski is expected to play, which means the Italian defense is in danger, but Italy also has a lot of offensive firepowers, and for that reason, I expect goals here.
