Poland take on the visitors Netherlands in the round 5 match of UEFA Nations League (League A). The match will be played on Thursday, September 22nd at PGE Narodowy (Warsaw).
Poland prepares for the World Cup. The “Kadra” were able to break through to the next World Cup already, not without scandal. Instead of 2 rounds of the playoffs in the spring there was only a home match with Sweden - by that time Russia had been disqualified. This was the debut of a new mentor, Cheslav Mikhnevich, who replaced Paulo Souza, who scandalously fled in the winter. The coach started with a victory in the League of Nations as well - Wales were beaten 2-1. But more serious opponents went on, and the results deteriorated noticeably. Belgium won both meetings, including 6-1 in Brussels. But in Rotterdam, the Poles led 2-0 between these misfires, but did not keep the advantage. Note that in the current line-up there is no Rybus - the representative of Spartak has coronavirus.

The Netherlands returned to cooperation with van Gaal. The “Oranje” is not the first time called for the post of head coach experienced Louis. And it was with him that he had the last "big" success, in the form of the semi-final of the "Brazilian" World Cup. It is clear that the results of the new cycle of cooperation will be discussed after the upcoming World Cup. But under him, in 2022, there are no defeats. Including the League of Nations, the Dutch started with a 4-1 win over their neighbor - Belgium, and on the road. They also managed to beat Wales twice, but with Poland, against this background, a draw looks like a misfire. It is noteworthy that now there are practically no new faces, only Scherpen, the goalkeeper of Vitesse, has never played at such a level. But at the same time, there was no place in the clip for Weindahl, Karsdorp, de Roon, Clasy, Gravenbech, Danzhum, Malen and Luke De Jong. And Krul and Wijnaldum are injured.
The Dutch have not lost for 10 head-toheads. There were even 4 victories in a row, before the mentioned 2-2 in Rotterdam. The Dutch obviously come to play to win, to attack. But Poland also has at least Lewandowski. So we are waiting for the next spectacular confrontation and "total over 2.5".
Prediction for the match: Over 2.5 scored goals.
