Poland takes on Bosnia Herzegovina this week in the UEFA Nations League with sights of promotion to Group A1. The match schedules for Wednesday with kickoff at 9:45 pm.
It is an interesting clash this Wednesday with only three points separating the two sides apart. The visitors have a big opportunity in their hands to turn the tables in the group with a win this Wednesday.
The UEFA Nations League draw had many placing their bets on either Italy or Netherlands for the finals in the 2021 fixture. However, Poland and Bosnia Herzegovina are proving to be a hard nut to crack altogether. Whoever progresses from the group will settle their eyes on finishing with a final four slot.
Both sides came off disappointing goalless draws on Sunday. A win for either team would have sealed a ticket for the showdown in Wroclaw. Poland seemed overpowered by Italy managing only three shots against 16 from their opponents. However, Jerzy Brzeczek’s side will contend with picking a point for a second-place battle at Azzurri.
Bosnia also ended in a goalless draw against the Netherlands. The stalemate at Zenica leaves much to contend for in case the side looks for a first position in the Group. Dusan Bajevic will be looking to cut the party short for Poland this Wednesday. Their reverse fixture last month ended in a 2-1 loss for them.
