POR vs POL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
UEFA’s latest attempt to inject some sense into international breaks sees the creation of UEFA Nations League, and in its latest round of fixtures, Poland will be taking on Euro 2016 winners Portugal at Silesian Stadium. However, some top managers like Jurgen Klopp still look at it as a step back to the football management merry-go-round. As more groups, more matches, and with more teams qualifying for the Euro 2020, Europe’s global showpiece event may have more dead-rubbers than what we endure during these international breaks. But whatever it is, the schedule isn’t going to change and Poland and Portugal will definitely play, aiming to secure precious 3-points in this match.
All the pre-match build-up is expected to feature Poland’s superstar Robert Lewandowski who is gunning for his 100th international cap in this match. If the 30-year old plays, which he is almost certain to do, then the Bayern Munich striker will become only the 5th Polish to achieve this feat. By doing so, he will be only three caps away to become the most capped player for Poland in International football. With 54 goals in 99 appearances, the former Borussia Dortmund star is also Poland’s highest goal scorer in International football.
The visitors, on the other hand, are aiming for the back-to-back victories in the Nations League after beating Italy 1-0 in the last game. A win in this match will also take Fernando Santos’ men to the top of the group.
The 2016 Euro Champions are without their potent striker Cristiano Ronaldo for the 2nd consecutive International break this season as the 5-times Ballon d’Or winner is rumoured to be considering his future with the national side. But the side is still talented enough to cope with his absence with the likes of Bernando Silva, Andre Silva, and the young prodigy Ruben Neves giving the Seleccao enough attacking options on any given matchday.

Here is the POR vs POL Dream11 team news and injuries
Poland vs Portugal Team News:
Poland: As mentioned, this is Lewandowski’s 100th match and he is expected to lead the side at Silesian Stadium. But the man of the moment is certainly Krzysztof Piatek. The Genoa hit-man has the world swooning over his strikes, leaving the major European clubs on his trail after he racked up an eye-catching 13 goals in the first 8 Serie A games this season. Quite incredible, isn’t it!
Apart from the aforementioned strikers, new Poland manager Jerzy Brzeczek is certain to include Jakub Blaszczykowski, Grzegorz Krychowiak and Kamil Glik in his matchday programme.
Portugal: Cristiano Ronaldo is definitely not the part of this group of players and will not feature. Andre Silva scored the all-important goal against Italy in Portugal’s last Nations League match and once again, the Sevilla hotshot is going to be their main man up front. Bernardo Silva may be given the free role with both Ruben Neves and Guedes playing on either side of Manchester City player.
