A Poland side without star striker Robert Lewandowski will kick off their Euro 2024 campaign on Sunday when they face the Netherlands in a Group D match at Volksparkstadion in Hamburg, Germany. The 35-year-old Lewandowski suffered a thigh injury in Poland's final warmup game against Turkey on Monday and will miss at least Sunday's match. His absence is a significant blow for Poland as he has scored 82 goals for Poland in his career and is coming off a 26-goal season for Barcelona. 

Kickoff is set for 9 a.m. ET. The Netherlands are the -180 favorites (risk $180 to win $100) in the latest Poland vs. Netherlands odds, with Poland the +500 underdogs. A draw is priced at +300. The over/under for total goals scored is 2.5.

Why you should back the Netherlands 

The Oranje have a plethora of world-class attackers. Memphis Depay, who has scored 45 goals in his international career, remains a quality threat despite battling injuries. Xavi Simons is a rising 21-year-old star who is coming off his best season. Cody Gakpo, Donyell Malen, Jeremie Frimpong and Wout Weghorst also have the ability to give defenses headaches.

Led by all of that attacking talent, the Netherlands enter Sunday's match on a roll. They have scored at least four goals in four of their last five matches. They also are 6-1 over their last seven matches, with the only loss coming to Germany in Frankfurt. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Poland

The Poles will face a Netherlands back line that is potentially vulnerable. In qualifying for Euro 2024, the Dutch conceded six goals combined in their two matches against France. In Nations League play last year, they gave up four goals against Croatia and three against Italy.

In addition, the Netherlands will be without one of its stars in midfielder Frenkie de Jong. The 27-year-old de Jong has been bothered by an ankle injury for months and will not be available during the tournament. The loss of de Jong is significant as his dribbling helps the team escape tight spots and his tackling helps win the ball back. See which team to pick here.
