class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Both countries still have hopes of qualifying for the Nations League finals but their recent matches in the tournament have not seen much action
The most open group in League A of the UEFA Nations League comes to a culmination on Wednesday as Netherlands travel to Poland with both sides harbouring hopes of making the final four.
Currently it is Italy who lead Group A1, but if the Azzurri slip up in their final game against Bosnia-Herzegovina, a win for either the Netherlands or Poland could see them making the knockout stages of the competition.
Poland vs Netherlands Latest Odds
Tottenham forward Steven Bergwijn scored the only goal of the game when these sides met in September and the Netherlands are offered at evens (2.00) with bet365.
Poland, though, are unbeaten in their last nine home matches in all competitions and are priced at 13/5 (3.60), with the draw at 5/2 (3.50).
Poland vs Netherlands Team News
The hosts are without midfielder Jacek Goralski, who was sent off against Italy on Sunday evening.
Frank de Boer remains without his two first-choice centre-backs in Virgil van Dijk and Matthijs de Ligt, while goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen is also missing.
Poland vs Netherlands Preview
The Dutch enjoyed a much-needed 3-1 win at the weekend, although in truth, Bosnia provided very little resistance.
Against better organised sides, De Boer’s men have struggled to break down the opposition and prior to Sunday’s result they have managed just two goals in five matches.
Poland, meanwhile, have kept clean sheets in seven of their last nine home matches and could once again frustrate the Dutch on Wednesday night.
In September, Jerzy Brzecek’s men were physical and stubborn opponents and the Netherlands will expect more of the same in a game where both sides are playing for a potential place in the final four.
Both of these teams have scored just five goals in five matches in the group stage and the statistics point to another low-scoring encounter.
Poland vs Netherlands Tips and Predictions
Under 2.5 goals is priced at evens (2.00) and is a selection that comfortably paid out in the previous meeting two months ago.
The Netherlands remain a side lacking in serious firepower, while Poland are well-drilled and that should lead to a dearth of goals.
