The POR vs POL match preview –
The reigning champions of the UEFA Euro Cup are Portugal and they will be hosting Poland as the teams play a game in the UEFA Nation’s League on Tuesday.
Portugal are still not quite where they were in 2016 but the team is getting there. Even though they are without Cristiano Ronaldo for these set of games, the team is winning games. Their defence has been sound, and it is down to the brilliance of the midfield. The only issue for them has been scoring goals. Even though Andre Silva and Bernardo Silva are competent players, the fact of the matter is that they’re not Ronaldo, and his presence is pivotal for the team.
Meanwhile, Poland have two of the best strikers on form in their roster. Couple that up with a strong backup in Zielinski and Milik, the attacking department is sorted. However, the midfield appears to be a bit shallow and that has been their Achilles Heel in the recent game. Regardless, they still have some games left to figure out the right combination to take forward in the future games.
