Poland v Italy

Poland and Italy meet in a crucial UEFA Nations League clash in group three of League A with both sides searching for their first win in the competition.

Both countries have played second fiddle to group leaders and European champions Portugal and a win would go a long way to boost qualification hopes for the final four at the end of group matches.

Group leaders Portugal have two wins in as many games after beating Italy in September and Poland last week.

In-form Sevilla striker Andre Silva scored the only goal of the game as Portugal defeated Italy 1-0 at home and he was also amongst the goals when his side came from behind to beat Poland 3-2 away from home.

Andre Silva is presently on a season-long loan from Italian giants AC Milan.

In the first game of the group, Poland and hosts Italy played out a 1-1 draw after Chelsea midfielder Jorginho cancelled out the first half opener from Polish midfielder Piotr Zelinski.

Ahead of Sunday’s game between both sides, Poland manager Jerzy Brzeczek is expected to make a big change in goal.

West Ham United goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski conceded three goals against Portugal on Thursday and is most likely to lose his place to Wojciech Szczesny.

Probable Lineup for Poland (4-4-2): Szczesny; Kedziora, Bednarek, Glik, Reca; Blaszczykowski, Krychowiak, Linetty, Zielinski; Lewandowski, Piatek

Probable Lineup for Italy (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Florenzi, Bonucci, Chiellini, Criscito; Verratti, Jorginho, Pellegrini; Bernardeschi, Immobile, Insigne
