Goal Scorer:

Without both Robert Lewandowski - Poland's top scorer at the Euros, netting five of their 11 goals to date - and Juventus striker Arkadiusz Milik, who was recently ruled out by a knee injury, Michal Probierz will have to improvise up front.

Although troubled by an ankle problem, Karol Swiderski could play as a 'false nine' this weekend, or Krzysztof Piatek offers a more conventional option to spearhead the Polish attack.

Milik's clubmate Wojciech Szczesny is an 82-cap veteran and starts in goal, while another Italy-based star, Piotr Zielinski, pulls the strings in midfield.
Poland possible starting lineup:
Szczesny; Bednarek, Dawidowicz, Kiwior; Slisz; Frankowski, Zielinski, Piotrowski, Szymanski, Zalewski; Swiderski

Meanwhile, the Netherlands are likely to pick either Memphis Depay or Brian Brobbey as their focal point, with willing runner Wout Weghorst also in contention.

After Frenkie de Jong withdrew from the squad due to an ankle injury - joining Atalanta BC duo Marten De Roon and Teun Koopmeiners on the sidelines - full-back Ian Maatsen was called up as cover; however, either Nathan Ake or Micky van de Ven should start on the left side of defence.

Only Portugal's Bruno Fernandes laid on more assists in Euro 2024 qualifying than Denzel Dumfries (five), and the Inter Milan wideman is set to feature on the right, holding off competition from Bayer Leverkusen's Jeremie Frimpong.
Netherlands possible starting lineup:
Verbruggen; Dumfries, Van Dijk, Ake, Van de Ven; Schouten, Veerman; Simons, Reijnders, Gakpo; Depay
Prediction: Poland 0-1 Netherlands
