Poland vs Portugal | Nations League - Grp A3 | 7:45pm Thursday 11th October | Stadion Slaski  

The second win for Portugal in Group 3 of League A would put them in an extremely strong position, and we should expect Fernando Santos' side look for the victory.

- Poland vs Portugal -

The winners of Euro 2016 have scored exactly one goal in each of their last five matches in all competitions and their games tend to be relatively low scoring affairs.

Nevertheless, they have enough quality to beat a Poland side that has been underwhelming in the last few months. 

The 30-year old joins a select group for four other centurions and is now only three caps away from becoming the Biało-czerwoni’s all-time leading appearance maker beating defender Michał Żewłakow.

Portugal may be missing Cristiano Ronaldo but they have enough quality to win at least one half of the game in Chorzow in the Nations League this week

- Poland vs Portugal-

Cristiano Ronaldo-less Portugal travels to Poland on Thursday evening aiming for their second win in the UEFA Nations League.

The European champions were without Ronaldo for the victory over Italy last month and while in the past they have been reliant on the Juventus forward for goals, Portugal has shown they can cope without the 33-year-old.

Lewandowski is already the leading goal scorer for his country and has 54 goals in 99 appearances. A goal against Portugal would certainly celebrate his centenary in some style.

Thursday evening is set to be a momentous evening for striker Robert Lewandowski is widely expected to be handed his 100th cap for his country. 

Start time
Poland vs Portugal kicks off at 7.45pm BST on Wednesday 10th October 2018 at Stadion Slaski.

TV online and live stream coverage
The match will not be shown live on TV or online in the UK.

Team news

With Ronaldo missing for Portugal, goalscoring responsibilities are likely to fall to Sevilla striker Andre Silva. 

The forward is La Liga's second top scorer this season and is likely to lead the line after scoring the winner against Italy last month.

Poland striker Robert Lewandowski will win his 100th cap if he features on Thursday night.

As for Portugal, they are targeting back to back Nations League victories to ensure top spot in Group A3. 

Last time out the Euro 2018 winners edged out Italy 1-0 in their Nations League debut thanks to a strike from Andre Silva just after half-time.

Fernando Santos will be without Cristiano Ronaldo for the game, who has stepped back from the international game for now. 

The veteran tactician has changed his side accordingly, switching to a 4-3-3 focusing on fast-paced counter-attacking football.

Interestingly, the last three meetings between these two sides have finished a level, including their Euro 2016 quarter-final, which Portugal eventually won on penalties. 

Portugal may have to go on the attack early on to draw their opponents out. Expect Bernardo Silva to play a key role on the counter for his country. 

In injury news,  Valencia winger Goncalo Guedes will miss out thanks to a thigh injury.

Andre Silva has been on form for new club Sevilla, bagging seven goals in eight La Liga starts as the Andalusians find themselves at the top of the league table. 

Silva is widely expected to spearhead the Portugal attack on Thursday and don’t be surprised if the 22-year old finds the back of the net for a second consecutive UEFA Nations League game.
