Italy desperately need a win in their Nations League meeting with Poland on Sunday evening if they are to avoid relegation from League A.

Both sides come into the game with one point each, some way off Portugal’s six points at the top of the Group 3 standings.

Roberto Mancini didn’t shy away from explaining that his priorities with the Azzurri remained with achieving European Championship qualification though, and didn’t appear too concerned by the prospect of relegation from the top league.

Krzysztof Piatek will be a familiar threat to Mancini’s side and the Genoa striker is on fire this season, carrying his incredible club form over to international duty as he scored on his competitive debut against Portugal earlier this week.

Poland: Szczesny; Bereszynski, Glik, Bednarek, Reca; Szymanski, Goralski, Linetty; Zielinski – Lewandowski, Milik.

Italy: Donnarumma; Florenzi, Bonucci, Chiellini, Biraghi; Verratti, Jorginho, Barella; Bernardeschi, Insigne, Chiesa.
