Poland head into this encounter on the back of a mixed run of results. In their last 3 matches, Paulo Sousa’s side demolished Andorra in a 3-0 win, followed by a 2-1 defeat against England. Their most recent match brought a 1-1 draw against Russia.

The pressure to deliver on their own turf will be on, especially as Poland have won just 1 of their last 6 games at home.

In their last 3 matches, Arnar Vioarsson’s side demolished Liechtenstein in a 4-1 win, followed by a 2-1 defeat against Mexico. Their most recent match brought a 1-0 win against the Faroe Islands.
