The two sides have already faced-off against each other in the Nations League a month ago, with Italy barely managing to avoid defeat in front of the home crowd.
After the World Cup failure and an unexpected early elimination, the White and Reds were held to two successive draws, as Jerzy Brzeczek desperately looks to clinch his first triumph on the national team bench. Apart from a 1-1 draw with Gli Azzurri, the Eagles have played out an uninspiring draw with the Republic of Ireland in a friendly match that took place in Wroclaw.However, in midweek’s clash with Portugal at home, Poland suffered a 3-2 defeat, and they now need a victory to keep the pace with the defending European champions.
As for the visitors, they’ve struggled in both Nations League encounter, having suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat to Portugal before after missing to beat Poland. Although Mancini started his adventure with the national team by defeating Saudi Arabia in a friendly, he has failed to secure a victory ever since. In the past five games, La Nazionale have suffered two losses and played out three draws, including the one with Ukraine in midweek’s friendly challenge.
The leading European goalscorer this season Krzysztof Piatek will spearhead Poland’s attack alongside Robert Lewandowski. As for the visitors, Ciro Immobile should return to the starting eleven after commencing the encounter with Ukraine on the bench.
