POL vs ITA Dream11 Prediction: Poland and Italy will continue their respective 2020-21 UEFA Nations League campaigns with a clash at the Stadion Energa Gdansk on Sunday night. Poland earned a big win in their friendly with Finland during the week to give themselves the best preparation for this tough clash with Italy. The hosts were edged by Netherlands in their opening UEFA Nations League game but responded with a win over Bosnia-Herzegovina in their second clash to leave them with three points from a possible six. Italy on the other hand last tasted defeat in September 2018 and they went one better than their hosts in their midweek friendly, notching six against Moldova. Poland are capable of causing Italy some problems but having gone so long without defeat, the away team should be able to extend that run here.

Time: 12:15 am IST
Match: Poland vs Italy
Place: Stadion Energa Gdansk, Gdansk
Head-to-head (Last 5 Matches)
Poland wins: 1

Poland thumped Finland 5-1 in a friendly on Wednesday night, meanwhile, and will therefore enter this weekend’s contest in a confident mood, particularly with star player Robert Lewandowski back in the squad. Lewandowski missed the September internationals due to his involvement in the Champions League final, but the Bayern Munich striker is in the current squad and should lead the line on Sunday night. Poland, meanwhile, have already qualified for next summer’s European Championships, impressively winning eight of their 10 Group G matches to finish top of the section.

Poland will be without the service of Artur Jedrzejczyk and Przemyslaw Frankowski as both are injured.
