The game kicks off at 8:45 p.m. in the southwestern Polish city of Wrocław and follows three previous Nations League fixtures in which the Poles tied 0-0 with Italy, beat Bosnia-and-Herzegovina 2-1 away, and lost 0-1 to the Netherlands.
Poland, captained by star striker Robert Lewandowski, are looking to put on another strong performance against the Balkan side after a confidence-boosting win in an away clash last month.
At a pre-match news conference in Wrocław on Tuesday, Poland manager Jerzy Brzęczek said: "We are up against a side that make life uncomfortable. We managed to beat them away, but this is a new challenge."

Poland are ranked 19th worldwide by football's governing body FIFA, while Bosnia-and-Herzegovina are No. 50 in the FIFA table.
After three rounds of fixtures, Poland are third in their Nations League Group A1, with four points, as many as the Netherlands and one less than Italy.
On Wednesday, October 7, the Polish team routed Finland 5-1 in a friendly match on home turf that saw a number of less familiar faces fielded by Brzęczek.
The Nations League is the European football governing body UEFA’s newest national-team competition that is now in its second edition.
The competition is designed to enable teams to play against those that are similarly ranked and also offers an alternative path for teams to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.
Portugal won the first edition of the Nations League last year.
