Italy vs Poland Betting Tips

Italy enter into the UEFA Nations League hoping to get back to the glory days, but under the regime of Roberto Mancini. The former Manchester City and Inter Milan manager has taken over the national team reins for the first time in his career. Mancini has been able to enjoy success at various stages of club football, but it remains to be seen if he will be able to lead the four-time world champions to success at the UEFA Nations League. They are up against a Poland outfit that will be under the regime of Jerzy Brzeczek for the first time in a competitive match.

Mancini will seek a solid display against Poland after having failed to make much of an impact in the friendly matches until now. The lack of a clean sheet in the few couple of games under his regime will worry Mancini, but there is a strong squad being called up for this match. Italy have been able to name a rather young team for this game, as Mancini looks to build for the future. Getting a positive result out of a young team – after having gone with experienced players for much of the last decade – will be a major challenge for Italy. Poland have been able to enjoy players like Krzysztof Piatek being on good form, but usual names like Robert Lewandowski will once again be key.

WHAT A YEAR FOR CRYSTAL PALACE!

It has been a drama filled year for Premier League side Crystal Palace. They fought relegation threats about a year back with the help of Sam Allardyce. They were marked for relegation but a late fine run which included victories against Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool ensured they retained their top flight status.

Surprisingly Allardyce opted to resign from his post. He gave an unusual excuse of wanting more family time. He said his decision truly shocked the management of the club as they probably looked at him to ensure stability at the very least before exiting. The former England national team boss insisted that it was the right time to leave, even though he eventually went on to coach Everton following the sack of Ronald Koeman in October.

DE BOER TO LOSE HIS CRYSTAL PALACE JOB

Frank de Doer is set to lose his Crystal Palace job that he was only appointed to this summer.


The former Ajax coach has started life very poorly in the Premier League, losing the first four games. The manager is under pressure especially as many questioned his employment following his Inter Milan disappointment last term.

The team has conceded six goals already, scoring none and at the bottom of the table. When West Ham United play their game, the woes would tell clearly. The manager’s best display was against a highly attacking Liverpool side that ended 1-0 at Anfield.

New boys Huddersfield dominated them shockingly as the season began. They defeated them 3-0 at home but many hoped it was a one-time thing. After the Liverpool performance, fans expected more as it showed improvement. Next Swansea City defeated them 2-0 before Burnley added their recently.

The team has largely relied on misfiring Christian Benteke. The former Reds striker has been criticized for blowing away clear chances. Even De Boer has asked the team to show more courage after their recent display. He clearly lacks the ability to motivate the team, which is one likely reason that would earn him a sack soon.

The manager won just four games after 11 Serie A matches last term. Inter Milan sacked him after just 85 days as they were more ambitious. Though the club has struggled in recent years, De Boer does not seem like one that can really change things.

Crystal Palace host Southampton and then Huddersfield (EFL Cup). The results from these two games are crucial as both losses clearly point to De Boer’s sack. Because they play the rampaging Manchester clubs back to back next. That would mean sevenleague losses in a row. No one survives that.
