Poland vs Belgium recent form
Both Poland and Belgium have suffered just one defeat in their last five games, and are level on points (four) after three matches in UEFA Nations League 2022-23.
For starters, Poland enter their latest fixture fresh from a 2-2 draw against group leaders Netherlands. Czeslaw Michniewicz’s team were 2-0 up until the 50th minute mark but goals from Davy Klaassen and Denzel Dumfries denied Poland a first win over the Oranje since 1979.
Belgium, on the other hand, were held to a 1-1 stalemate by Wales. After Youri Tielemans gave the Red Devils the lead in the 54th minute, Brennan Johnson strike in the 86th minute rescued the Dragons who registered a second consecutive draw across all competitions against Roberto Martinez’s team.
