UEFA Nations League
ITA vs POL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Poland welcome Italy to the Silesian Stadium for a UEFA Nations League match. This is the 2nd game between these two countries in a month with the last match ending in a 1-1 draw in Bologna in September.
Things are yet to click for the 4-times World Champions under Roberto Mancini’s new regime. In fact, they are winless in their last five matches heading into this match and are bottom of the group with just 1 point to show for their efforts in the first two games. If the Azzurri fail to earn all the 3 points in this match, then they will be in grave danger of falling into the tier-2 of Nations League.
Italy are capable of winning this game. They have the right mixture of youth and talent in their ranks, while Federico Chiesa is certainly the man for the future with some quarters in the media even calling him the player to build Italy’s team around. However, the goals remain an unsolved mystery for Mancini. In fact, the Azzurri haven’t scored more than one goal in the last five matches with Saudi Arabia remaining the only side Italy have scored twice under Mancini.
For Poland, this is the game they can’t lose. They are 2nd in the group, 5 points adrift of Portugal who have a 100% record in the first two matches. A slip-up or failing to win this game may prove too costly for the hosts who are also aiming to avoid relegation into the tier-2.

ITA vs POL Dream11 TEAM NEWS: Injuries and Suspensions
Here is the ITA vs POL Dream11 team news and injuries
Poland vs Italy Team News:
Poland: Poland are destined to make some changes in this match after shipping in three goals against Portugal. On that count, Juventus first-choice Wojciech Szczesny could be the man to replace him. Midfielder Mateusz Klich is suspended for this match after picking up a yellow card in the last match.
Arkadiusz Reca and Tomasz Kedziora weren’t involved against Portugal and may be drafted in straight into the starting line, while Zielinski, Lewandowski, and Piatek were average in their last match and must raise their game for this pivotal clash.
Italy: For the visitors, Goals are the problems and Mancini may ring in some changes for that matter. However, one position where they have a presence of a world-class talent is between the posts as Donnarumma looks a worthy candidate to succeed the legendary Buffon.
The back-line which started the game against Ukraine is expected to be the same with Chiellini and Bonucci partnering at the heart of the defence.
Jorgino and Verratti should be the two deep-lying midfielders with Pelligrini completing a three-man midfield, replacing Barrella who looked far from convincing in the last match.
Young prodigy Federico Chiesa should retain his place in the squad alongside Bernardeschi who scored the goal against Ukraine.

ITA vs POL Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Formation – Though Italy are finding it hard to put the ball back into the net, still, we have gone for the most attacking formation – 3-4-3
Goalkeeper – one of the best in the world even at a tender age of 19 years- Donnarumma.
The Wall – On any given day, the central partnership of Chiellini and Bonucci is one of the best in business, while Bednarek completes our 3-men defence.
Midfielders – Napoli’s Zielinski, Wolfsburg’s Blaszczykowski have been chosen from the home side while we have gone for Chiesa and Bernardeschi from Italy’s squad.
Super Strikers – Insigne, Lewandowski and Piatek are our strikers.
Formation – 3-5-2
Goalkeeper – Fabianski endured a very poor outing against Portugal last time around and that’s why we have selected Juventus’ Szczesny ahead of him.
The Wall – Binucci drops out and we have replaced him with Kamil Glik. Bednarek will be giving him support.
Midfielders – Verratti and Jorginho have been drafted in. They have too much quality in them and in a game of this magnitude, we just can’t miss them. Bernardeschi, Zielinski and Blaszczykowski complete our midfield.
Super Strikers – Piatek has been dropped while Insigne and Lewandowski have been retained.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
With so much riding on this game, it could be a cagey affair and Italy used to be the master of these tactics.
Italy not to lose this match.
