Robert Lewandowski will look to hurt the hand that feeds him when Poland play Germany in what promises to be one of the best group stage matches of Euro 2016. The two teams know everything there is to know about each other, and with both sides quite fond of going on the attack, expect this match to be one of those end-to-end encounters from minute one.
Germany and Poland started off their Euro 2016 campaigns with wins, with the world champions seeing off the challenge of Ukraine with a 2-0 scoreline while an Arkadiusz Milik goal was enough from Poland to grab all three points from their match against Northern Ireland.
This match could decide who finishes top of Group C, and considering that gives you a better chance of getting an easier opponent in the last 16, both Germany and Poland will want all three points.
"Poland are well organised, that's their biggest strength. They wait and they counterattack," Germany manager Joachim Low told UEFA's official website. "That's their game, quick transitions. They are even better than Ukraine in that sense, because they are more flexible. They are one of the best counterattacking teams I have seen over the past two years.
"I expect we will have more of the ball as the Polish players like to drop deep. It is important to have small, nimble players up front."
Mario Gotze is expected to be that player up front, with Mesut Ozil, Thomas Muller and Julian Draxler giving him support and Low will hope Germany put on a similar performance to the one at Frankfurt when the two sides met in Euro 2106 qualifying rather than the one in Poland, when they 2-0.
Poland, of course, will want to emulate the 2-0 win again, and the key to doing that will be the two forwards – Lewandowski and Milik. The latter finished wonderfully to give Poland victory in the last game, but both need to step up their games if their team are to stop the world champions.
"Winning against Germany in the Euro qualifiers was a really important moment for the development of this team," Poland manager Adam Nawalka said. "But, with our good players, such important wins would have come around sooner or later.
"We believe in ourselves but we face one of the best teams in the world so it is going to be very, very difficult. Every game here is a special day for us. We are proud we are here representing Poland."
