Poland and Ukraine are set to clash in an international friendly on Friday evening, a crucial match as both teams prepare for Euro 2024.

Here's a detailed look at the prediction, form, team news, and potential lineups for this exciting encounter.

Match Preview

Poland's Preparations and Form

Poland has chosen a unique approach to their Euro 2024 preparations, with their first friendly match coming just over a week before the tournament begins.

Head coach Michal Probierz's side has been in good form, boasting a six-game unbeaten streak.

Their recent performance in the playoffs saw them thrash Estonia 5-1 and secure their Euro spot with a penalty shootout win against Wales.

Poland's squad looks solid, with key players like Robert Lewandowski expected to lead the attack.

Ukraine's Road to Euro 2024

Ukraine also qualified for Euro 2024 through the playoffs, overcoming Bosnia-Herzegovina and Iceland with 2-1 victories.

Under the guidance of Sergiy Rebrov, Ukraine has shown resilience and consistency, losing just one of their last 11 matches.

Their recent goalless draw against Germany highlights their defensive capabilities.

Ukraine's historical performance against Poland, however, is less favourable, having lost the last two encounters.

Prediction

Given the form and preparations of both teams, this friendly is poised to be a close contest. Poland's recent momentum and Ukraine's solid defence suggest that the match could end in a low-scoring draw.
