Betting & Match Odds
Italy are priced at odds of winning 13/8 according to bet 365, while a draw is available at 7/4. A win for Poland is priced at 21/10.
Their recent run of form has been disappointing, however, with only one win in their last 10 matches, including the 1-1 draw with Ukraine last time out.
"I'm fed up of not winning and so is everyone," Mancini told reporters.
"The positive thing is that the team played good football for long periods.
"It was a friendly, so hopefully we can start winning on Sunday. It's obvious the fans are upset when their team doesn't win, but we mustn't listen to the jeers.
"If we had scored another goal, everyone would've been happy with the performance. I think it was just about the result."
Should there be a winner between Poland and Italy, that could decide the second-placed spot of Group 3 in League A of the Nations League, with Portugal claiming the top spot.
A Lewandowski-led Poland side were unable to get the better of the Portuguese in their last fixture, with goals from Andre Silva and Bernardo Silva, as well as a Kamil Gilk own goal, seeing the visitors claim a 3-2 win.
