Poland will resume their quest for a first win against Germany as the teams meet for a 19th time in UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying Group D.

Match background
• Poland's record in 18 matches against Germany is W0 D6 L12, and they have scored just once in their six competitive meetings with Germany and West Germany (W0 D2 L4).

• The nations last met in a goalless friendly draw in Hamburg on 13 May this year; it was the first time Poland had kept a clean sheet against Germany since reunification.

• In their last competitive meeting, Polish-born Lukas Podolski scored both Germany's goals in a 2-0 victory against Poland in a UEFA EURO 2008 group stage game in Klagenfurt, Austria.

• Germany coach Joachim Löw has been in charge for three games against Poland; the aforementioned win and two subsequent friendly draws. He was assistant coach when Germany beat Poland 1-0 in Dortmund in the group stage of the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

• A 2-1 win against Scotland in their opening Group D game means Germany are unbeaten in 18 competitive internationals (W16 D2). They have not lost in 33 qualifiers (W29 D4) since a 3-0 home reverse to the Czech Republic on 17 October 2007.

• Germany's last away defeat in a qualifying match was a 3-0 loss against Portugal in June 2000.

• German clubs' record in 48 meetings with Polish sides is W29 D15 L4. In 22 meetings in UEFA age-group competitions, Germany's record against Poland is W13 D6 L3.
