Gianluigi Donnarumma from the Italian setup will be inducted in our side as the goal-keeper for this contest. He parried away a carnage of shots the last time around, a showing which saw him side emerge with the one point from the contest.
Where the Italians have been completely listless in attack, the club has as per has been customary of it, packed a real punch defensively. The side’s backline has let in a measly two goals to keep two cleansheets in four matches to see us opt for both Alessandro Florenzi and Francesco Acerbi from the side.
Poland have been equally impressive at the back. The side’s responsible and disciplined brand of defending has seen the club let in just two goals as well including a cleansheet the last time they took on the Italians.
This can easily unfold with a third cleansheet in a row for the side to see us opt for both Tomasz Kedziora and one goal man Kamil Glik.
With the one goal and one assist in his kitty, Kamil Grosicki has been integral to Poland’s consummate success this season. Grzegorz Krychowiak has as ever held down fort for his side in midfield, a player who has disrupted attacking plays by devouring the tackles and blocks.
CDM Jacek Goralski will wrap up the trivalent of picks from the club while the one goal and one assist earns Nicolo Barella a place in our side from Italy.
He will find company in Lorenzo Insigne who has the one assist for the side while the ever reliable and dependable, Robert Lewandowski represents us from the visiting setup.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Robert’s two goals and an assist see him captain our side while Barella is our vice-captain.
