The game kicks off at 8:45 p.m. in the southern Polish city of Chorzów and follows a bitter 0-2 defeat suffered by the Poles at the hands of coronavirus-hit Italy in their penultimate Nations League group-stage match three days earlier.
Poland, captained by star striker Robert Lewandowski, are looking to make amends for their forgettable performance at Mapei Stadium in the northern Italian city of Reggio Emilia on Sunday.
After five rounds of Nations League fixtures, Poland are sitting in third place in their Nations League Group A1, with seven points, two behind Italy and one less than the Netherlands.
In their previous Nations League games, the Poles beat 10-man Bosnia-and-Herzegovina 3-0 at home on October 10, tied 0-0 with Italy at home on October 11, beat Bosnia-and-Herzegovina 2-1 away on September 7, and lost 0-1 to the Netherlands away on September 4.
Italy on Wednesday play the already eliminated Bosnia-and-Herzegovina in their last Nations League group-stage fixture and stand the best chance of advancing to the competition's final four next year.
At a pre-match news conference in Chorzów on Tuesday, Poland manager Jerzy Brzęczek said: "We are up against a side that is very similar to Italy in terms of the style of play, the level of technical training and tactical advancement."

Poland are ranked 18th worldwide by football's governing body FIFA, while the Netherlands are No. 15 in the FIFA table.
The Polish team failed to stop the Dutch side from dominating their first-leg clash in September.
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.
