The hosts have won only 4 of their last 10 international home matches, the Dutch are unbeaten in each of their last 7 on the road in all competitions.

The reverse fixture on June 11 ended in a pulsating 2-2 draw and this game has the potential to be another cracker.

A victory for Poland will secure their survival in League A and would see them match their points tally from the last campaign with a game to spare.

Netherlands are currently enjoying a 13-game unbeaten run, dating back to June last year when they lost 2-0 to Czech Republic in the knockout rounds of Euro 2020.
