The Republic of Ireland will be determined to bounce back from their humiliating defeat against Wales when they take on Poland in Tuesday's friendly clash.

Martin O'Neill saw his side go down 4-1 in their UEFA Nations League opener in Cardiff, following on from a 5-1 World Cup play-off defeat against Denmark in their previous competitive match.

Latest Odds

With the pressure mounting on the former Sunderland boss, he is priced at 24/5 (5.80) with William Hill to mastermind a much-needed victory in Wroclaw.

The Eagles ran out 2-1 winners when the sides last met in a European Championship qualifier three years ago, and are 8/15 (1.53) favourites to come out on top once again.

Poland played out a 1-1 draw with Italy in their opening Nations League game on Friday, and you can get odds of 16/5 (4.20) on them being held to another stalemate in this one.

Team News

An injury crisis has deprived the guests of first teamers Seamus Coleman, Stephen Ward, Jonathan Walters, James McClean, Robbie Brady, James McCarthy, Shane Long and Harry Arter, with uncapped striker Ronan Curtis called into the squad this week.

Robert Lewandowski is in line to make his 100th international appearance, although faces a late fitness test before he is cleared to play.

Prolific Poland

Whether Lewandowski is passed fit or not, the home crowd at the Stadion Miejski will be confident of celebrating some goals against a team that has gone five matches without a clean sheet and conceded nine times in their last two competitive games.

Jerzy Brzeczek’s side averaged three goals a match on home turf during World Cup qualification, and have hit the net nine times in their three most recent friendlies in front of their own fans.

Predictions

With the Boys in Green missing a number of key players, odds of 4/5 (1.80) seem generous on Poland scoring at least twice in this game.
