Poland (POL) will take on Russia (RUS) in an international friendly as both teams prepare for the upcoming European Champions. The game will be played at the Stadion Miejski (Wrocław) in Poland and will kick off at 12:15 AM IST on Wednesday, June 2. With just hours left for the game, here's a look at the POL vs RUS Dream11 prediction, team, top picks and our preview for the game.
Both Poland and Russia have had little success in the last international break and the two sides will look to freshen things up and return to winning ways with Euro 2020 on the corner. Poland's new head coach Paulo Sousa started off his managerial stint indifferently, drawing 3-3 in Hungary before suffering defeat against England at Wembley Stadium. While there is still time for Poland to make it to the 2022 World Cup, they have little momentum heading into a group with Spain, Sweden and Slovakia at the Euros.
As for Russia, Stanislav Cherchesov will be satisfied with six points coming from their opening three World Cup qualifiers, but losing in Slovakia again highlighted the weaknesses in this side. The 2018 World Cup hosts have struggled to keep the ball out of the net and have only two clean sheets in their last 11 games.
Both managers are set to rotate their XIs and give their fringe players a chance as they look to manage the workload of their star players after a congested season. Robert Lewandowski and Piotr Zielinski are unlikely to play the full 90 minutes on Tuesday night, but Mateusz Klich could start after being rested for Leeds United's closing Premier League matches. Russia meanwhile will see their usual suspects in Denis Cheryshev and Artem Dzyuba, with the latter scoring four goals in his last three outings.
