Poland vs. Netherlands OKbet Betting’s Prediction
Poland hasn’t fared well in the Nations League thus far, but they’ve been assigned to a challenging group. Their lone victory came against Wales on Matchday 1 at home, with Karol Swiderski scoring the game-winning goal. Since then, Czesaw Michniewicz’s men have been throttled by Belgium, tied by the Dutch, and then defeated by the Red Devils.
The Poles, on the other hand, have a pretty healthy roster heading into Thursday. The only conspicuous absence is Aston Villa defender Matty Cash, who has only recently begun playing for his country. Robert Lewandowski of Barcelona will be seeking to continue his excellent domestic form, while Jan Bednarek of Villa will be the main man at the back. These games are crucial not just for remaining competitive in the Nations League, but also for preparing for the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.

The Netherlands are flying high in this campaign, having gone unbeaten in four games. Memphis Depay scored at the death against Wales on Matchday 4, but he hasn’t played much since the arrival of Lewandowski at Barcelona.
Nonetheless, Louis van Gaal’s team is in fantastic form right now. They are on a 13-game unbeaten streak dating back to Euro 2020, when the Oranje were eliminated in the round of 16 by the Czech Republic. That was their most recent defeat. Goals have come easily, with 11 in four games. The defense will be led by Virgil van Dijk and Matthijs de Ligt, but it will be intriguing to see how the duo performs following a disappointing start to the season for their respective teams. Van Gaal’s only omission is Georginio Wijnaldum.
Poland vs Netherlands Projected Lineups and Injuries
Poland’s projected starting lineup includes Szczesny, Bereszynski, Dawidowicz, Glik, Kiwior, Zalewski, Krychowiak, Linetty, Szymanski, Zielinski, and Lewandowski.
Cash for Injuries and Absences
Cillessen, Dumfries, de Ligt, van Dijk, Blind, de Jong, de Roon, Klaassen, Berghuis, Memphis, Bergwijn are all projected to play for the Netherlands.

OKbet Pick: Poland vs. Netherlands
In recent memory, the Dutch have been just too good to bet against. Their team’s talent is just higher than Poland’s, and van Gaal virtually has a full-strength roster to choose from. Take the tourists, but don’t forget to spend some money on the over. Given the history of previous gatherings, it’s worthwhile.
