Two sides who will be looking to cash in on their midweek success, Poland and Italy will turn their attention back to Nations League duties when they face off at the Stadion Energa Gdańsk on Sunday night.

While this weekend’s hosts might have opened this year’s tournament with a 1-0 defeat against Holland on their travels last month, Poland did secure a thumping 5-1 win against Finland in a friendly showdown earlier in the week and have now lost just one of their last eight matchups across all formats.

On the flip side, while Italy might have also been disappointed to have had to settle for a shock 1-1 draw against Bosnia-Herzegovina in their Nations League opener, they hit Moldova for six in midweek and have enjoyed a real resurge over the past 24 months.

Already finding a route to the top of Group 1, ahead of both Poland and Holland, there is no doubt that the former world champions will be boosted by their most recent meeting against Sunday’s hosts.

Picking up a 1-0 win when they made the trip to Chorzow back in 2018, you might be interested to know a similar away victory this weekend can be found priced at 19/20 with Betfair.

The return of Lewandowski

Although Poland would have been disappointed to have opened this year’s Nations League campaign with a close-fought 1-0 defeat against Holland on the road, the Eagles have impressed many across Europe since the inaugural tournament two years ago.

Eventually cruising their way to EURO 2021 in rampant fashion and holding a six-point buffer over second-place Austria in Group G, there is no doubt that Sunday’s hosts will be hugely excited to welcome their MVP back into the fold this weekend.

Really spearheading what was a record-breaking campaign for Bayern Munich as the German giants romped their way to this summer’s Champions League, Robert Lewandowski really set Europe alight last season.

Scoring a staggering 58 goals across all competitions and almost universally regarded to be the number one striker on the planet at the moment, he was last seen bagging all four goals as Bayern secured a dramatic 4-3 win against Hertha Berlin last weekend.

You might be interested to know, also recording four goals in as many appearances while on international duties, a returning Lewandowski can be found priced at 6/4 with William Hill to extend on his tally this weekend.

An Italian resurge

After so famously missing out on a spot out in Russia at the World Cup finals two years ago, Italy have managed to turn a real corner under Roberto Mancini and are a nation certainly getting back to their best.

While the former European and world champions might have been disappointed to have had to settle for a point when they opened their Nations League campaign with a stalemate against Bosnia-Herzegovina, the one-time Manchester City boss has seen his side gain a string of plaudits for their scintillating form in the final third.

Keeping the mood in their camp at a real high after landing a thumping 6-0 romp against Moldova in a friendly contest earlier in the week, the Blues now find themselves in the midst of an extended unbeaten run that stems all the way back to September 2018.

Also convincingly securing their spot at EURO 2021, Italy remarkably won all 10 of their qualifying contests, scoring a staggering 37 goals on that run.

You might be interested to know; Italy can be found priced at 11/10 with Unibet to once again record over 1.5 goals on their travels this weekend.
