ITA vs POL Dream11 Prediction: Unbeaten Italy – who have not lost an international game since 2018 – host Poland at Sassuolo’s Mapei Stadium on Sunday as the UEFA Nations League continues. Both these sides come into this clash off the back of clean sheets and victories in their respective friendlies in midweek. Italy have had a frustrating UEFA Nations League campaign thus far, drawing three of their four games and currently trail opponents Poland by a point in Group A1. Whilst the hosts will be favourites to win here, Poland are in excellent form, having won four of their last five games, conceding just two goals. The visitors can afford to play conservatively, knowing that a point will keep them above the Italians in the group and with star striker Robert Lewandowski in their ranks.
