Italy vs Poland Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for Italy vs Poland Predictions
Italy is coming from a 4-0 win over Estonia in a friendly match, which handed them their 20th straight unbeaten outing, with 15 wins therein. They have won three of their last five games and have four clean sheets. Since their loss to France at home in 2016, Italy has not suffered a home defeat in 24 straight matches and have found their gloss back after missing the 2018 World Cup. The hosts head here with seven clean sheets in 11 home matches and have scored in each of their last ten home games. Italy has some improvements to make in the Nations League, though; they have two wins and four draws in the competition’s previous six matches. Jorginho is an excellent defensive midfielder who knows what he is doing at all times, he is strong, and it is not easy to take the ball away from him. He plays great for Chelsea and performs well on penalties. Vincenzo Grifo enjoys the field, and when he receives the ball and heads towards the goal, the opponent has problems.
On the other hand, Poland is coming from a 2-0 win over Ukraine in a friendly, and this is the form they will want to carry to Italy. Unbeaten in the last five matches, they will feel confident enough to take on this challenge with four wins in there. They have three straight clean sheets and have scored 12 goals in the last five matches. The only time Poland failed to score in their previous five games, it was against Italy, a game that ended 0-0. Poland heads here unbeaten in the last three Nations League games with two wins therein and has failed to score in three of their eight Nations League games, just like Italy. Away from home, they have one win in four Nations League games and with no clean sheet in the four. Przemyslaw Placheta creates a lot of problems for the opponents on the right-wing. It’s hard to keep this guy in the one-on-one game, as he has fantastic dribbles. Jerzy Brzeczek is doing a great job, he has the energy that drives the national team, and he demands that the players do their best in every match.
Italy is the favorite of this match and is expected to get all three points in this clash.
This will be a big fight between these two rivals, and we should expect a goal from both teams. Football fans should enjoy this match and see at least a goal in each net.
