class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>These sides played out two tight games in the previous edition of the Nations League and we are backing another close match this weekend in Gdansk
Italy travel to Poland on Sunday evening in Group One of League A of the Nations League with Roberto Mancini’s side looking to extend their long unbeaten run.
The Azzurri have not tasted defeat in over two years, and their run of 14 wins and three draws in that time ranks them as one of the continent’s most in-form teams.
Poland themselves have been on a strong run, suffering just two defeats in their last 14 games, although the calibre of opponent during that time has not been particularly high.
Poland vs Italy Latest Odds
The hosts have won five and drawn one of their last six matches on home soil and a victory for Poland is priced at 16/5 (4.20) with bet365.
Italy can be backed at 19/20 (1.95) with the draw available at 23/10 (3.30).
Poland vs Italy Team News
Robert Lewandowski was given a break last month and did not feature for Poland, but the Bayern Munich star is back in the squad and ready to lead the line for his country once more.
Italy have left out Lorenzo Insigne, Alex Meret and Giovanni di Lorenzo from the squad due to coronavirus protocols, but Marco Verratti has returned from injury and should start in midfield.
Poland vs Italy Preview
Both sides enjoyed high-scoring friendly win in midweek, with Italy thrashing Moldova 6-0 and Poland sweeping aside Finland by a 5-1 scoreline.
Nevertheless, there should be a temptation to back a low-scoring clash when they meet in Gdansk and considering how the games went when these two sides met in group stage of the previous edition of the Nations League.
A 1-1 draw in Bologna was followed by a 1-0 win for Italy in Poland thanks to an injury time strike, and the respective records of both teams in the tournament point to few goals being scored.
All six of Italy’s matches in the Nations League have seen under 2.5 goals while four of Poland’s six matches have enjoyed less than three strikes.
Poland vs Italy Tips and Predictions
Under 2.5 goals comfortably paid out in both meetings between these sides in 2018 and a repeat is priced at a healthy looking 4/5 (1.80).
