Poland vs Netherlands Team News

Robert Lewandowski was rested in a 5-0 win over Finland in March, but Borussia Dortmund ace should lead the attack for the Poles against Netherlands. Maciej Rybus misses both Wednesday’s friendly and Euro 2016 with injury, while Pavel Dawidowicz, Przemyslaw Tyton and Artur Sobiech have been left out of the squad. Filip Starzynski of Zaglebie could earn his third cap for Poland against Netherlands, but he is unlikely to start the match. Sevilla midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak is rated doubtful for Wednesday’s match.

Injured: Maciej Rybus

Doubtful: Grzegorz Krychowiak 

Suspended: None

Arjen Robben remains on the sidelines with injury, with Bart Ramselaar and Jurgen Locadia missing out as well. Galatasaray midfielder Wesley Sneijder misses the match with a rib injury, while former Manchester United attacker Robin van Persie has been overlooked. Luuk De Jong came as a substitute and scored the equalizer against Republic of Ireland and he could be recalled to the starting line-up. Luciano Narsingh, who scored eight goals in the 2015/2016 Eredivisie campaign, is pushing for a start as well.

Quick Facts

  • Poland are eyeing their sixth consecutive win
  • Adam Nawalka’s men suffered only one loss in last 18 games in all competitions
  • Over 2.5 goals were scored in seven of Poland’s last eight matches
  • Netherlands scored 2+ goals in three of their last four away games
  • Over 3.5 goals were scored in each of last four meetings between Poland and Netherlands

Poland vs Netherlands Prediction

Lewandowski-less Poland hammered Finland (5-0) in their last warm-up game and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they square off against Netherlands at Stadion Energa Gdansk. Adam Nawalka’s men head into the game full of confidence and given that Robert Lewandowski returns to the starting line-up, home win appears on the cards. Netherlands coach Danny Blind can’t count on some of his star players for Wednesday’s friendly and there is every chance the visitors will return home empty-handed.
