Tip Poland - Portugal
Poland will play two straight home matches in the UEFA Nations League, as Italy comes touring straight after the Portugal game and the two matches will be very crucial for them. Cristiano Ronaldo is gradually leaving the stage at Portugal but that should not worry the Euro Cup holders, a start in Andre Silva is emerging and going by his stats in La Liga, he may not be too far away from Ronaldo, if given the right conditions to operate in. On the other end of course Robert Lewandowski will be the main man but there’s a horde of talent in the Polish team, including =10.5ptKrzysztof Piątek of Genoa, who has scored 13 in eight starts this season. While there is much attacking talent in these two sides, there is no corresponding influence in defence; both sides have been creaky at the back and have each managed just two clean sheets in the last six matches. Poland have one win in the last five matches and three in 10 at home. They have three clean sheets in their last 15 home matches and haven’t won any of the last three. Portugal have also failed to win their last three away matches but prior to that they had six straight wins. They have picked just one loss in the last nine away matches and have posted seven clean sheets in the process. The two nations have drawn in each of their last three meetings and in total they have met 11 times, with Poland winning three and Portugal five.
Key points Poland - Portugal

Conclusion Poland - Portugal
While they have had a poor defensive record lately, it is worth to note that Portugal have managed seven clean sheets in the last nine away matches; one of the teams shut out include Belgium. Heading to this game, the defensive performance has not been good from both teams and with the attacking talent they both display, we are assured of goals in plenty so a prediction of both sides to score could work. What may also work here is the game to end in a draw, as we expect quire a balanced game.
