Highlights: Bosnia and Herzegovina 1-2 Poland

• Poland are unbeaten in seven home games (W5 D2) following their first home fixture in League A Group 1, Sunday's 0-0 draw against Italy.

• The Bosnians are two points adrift at the bottom of the group, but have taken points off both Italy and the Netherlands. Edin Džeko's next international goal will be his 60th.

Previous meetings

• Poland came from behind to win 2-1 against Bosnia and Herzegovina in September, in the sides’ first competitive meeting; Kamil Glik captained the Poles in Robert Lewandowski’s absence, and scored.

• Poland also had the better of the countries' previous games: W1 D1 in a pair of friendlies in Antalya, Turkey. The Bosnians are thus pursuing their first win against Poland in the teams’ fourth encounter.

What the coaches say

Jerzy Brzęczek, Poland coach: "We are up against a side that make life uncomfortable. We managed to beat them away, but this is a new challenge. We expect them to put out their strongest side. After losing in the EURO play-offs, their match against the Netherlands will have been tough for them, but they didn’t concede, which shows their mental strength."

Dušan Bajević, Bosnia and Herzegovina coach: "The two points we have won in the Nations League are worth a lot to us and now we are going to Poland to win, because we do not want to be last in this group. This country has great players and some younger ones confirmed that [in Sunday's 0-0 draw with the Netherlands]. Some will play against Poland. For various reasons, we are not doing well on a physical level, but the players are doing their best."
