Poland and Netherlands fight out in the must-win encounter of UEFA Nations League 2020-21 atChrozow on Wednesday evening.
Match Timing: NOV 19, 1:15 AM
Poland and the Netherlands are in a tricky situation at Nations League. Both sides would try to gain points here to qualify for the Finals. Frank de Boer recorded his first victory as Netherlands manager in the last outing against Bosnia-Herzegovina. Oranje is optimistic about their top-two finish in the group after securing 8 points from five matches. With a one-point difference to Itlay, Netherlands would look for the win here to finish on the second spot.
If Bosnia pulls off an upset against Itlay, they can find themselves in the top spot. Donny van de Beek can also get a recall as a replacement for Davy Klaassen. Luuk de Jong might be rested and Donyell Malen would get the recall.
On the other hand, Poland lost the momentum after a 2-0 loss against Itlay and they occupy the 3rd spot in the group with 8 points. A draw can put Jerzy Brzeczek's side in a favourable position as they would level the Netherlands in points but due to the better goal difference, they can take the second spot.
Bialo-czerwoni is confident about the equation but they have been beaten by the Oranje in the first-leg encounter 1-0. Kamil Grosicki is likely to get back into the playing XI. Arkadiusz Milik or Krzysztof Piatek may draft into the side.
