Poland are set to host Bosnia and Herzegovina at the Stadion Miejski Wroclaw on Wednesday as the UEFA Nations League action continues.

Poland come into this game following a 0-0 draw against Italy on Sunday at the Stadion Energa Gdansk. Despite the presence of Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski and later the Napoli striker Arkadiusz Milik, Poland could only muster two shots on target in a drab encounter.

Bosnia and Herzegovina, on the other hand, drew 0-0 against the Netherlands on Sunday at the Bilino Polje Stadium. Bosnia and Herzegovina star, Roma striker Edin Dzeko, did not start the game, with the Dutch national team failing to take advantage.

The two countries last met each other last month, with Poland beating Bosnia and Herzegovina 2-1. Goals from Benevento centre-back Kamil Glik and West Bromwich Albion winger Kamil Grosicki sealed the win for Poland. Kasimpasa midfielder Haris Hajradinovic scored the consolation goal for Bosnia and Herzegovina.
