As Poland and Austria prepare to clash in the Euro 2024 group stage, anticipation is high regarding the possible starting lineups for both teams.

This crucial match, scheduled to take place at the Olympiastadion in Berlin, will see both sides striving to bounce back from their opening defeats in Group D.

Poland enters this match following a narrow 2-1 loss to the Netherlands. Despite taking an early lead through an Adam Buksa header, the Polish side eventually succumbed to the Dutch.

The absence of star striker Robert Lewandowski was notable, though the team managed to register seven shots on target.

Coach Michal Probierz has decisions to make regarding his lineup, especially with the potential return of Lewandowski.

There is speculation that Lewandowski may be kept in reserve, with Karol Swiderski also being a key consideration after recovering from an injury.

Defenders: Jan Bednarek, Bartosz Salamon, Jakub Kiwior

Austria's Recent Form and Team News

Austria, under coach Ralf Rangnick, is also looking to recover from their 1-0 defeat to France.

Despite a solid performance, an own goal by Max Wober sealed their fate. The team had been on a seven-match unbeaten run before this loss.

Patrick Wimmer could also be included to add more width and creativity from the flanks.
