Poland will face Italy in their next UEFA Nations league match which will mark the return of Robert Lewandowski. Lewandowski’s return will be a huge boost to the Poland side going into the game against Italy.
These two sides will meet at Stadion Energa Gdansk in what is considered to be an important game for both the sides going forward. These two sides will hope to win this clash as this will help them in their qualification race which also involves the dominant Dutch side.
Italy are currently at the top of group with four points from their first two matches. Meanwhile, Poland are third in the group just below Netherlands. Poland managed to secure only three points from their first two matches after losing the UEFA Nations League opener against Netherlands. But they bounced back stronger by claiming a 2 – 1 away win against Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Poland will enter Stadion Energa in a positive mood after defeating Finland 5 -1 in a friendly few days back. The return of the UEFA player of the year Robert Lewandowski will also be an additional confident booster to the Eagles. Robert Lewandowski missed the first two matches of Poland as he was a part of the UCL Finals.
