Poland qualified for Euro 2020 after topping Group G where they bested Austria and eliminated North Macedonia, Slovenia, Israel and Latvia - the Eagles won eight out of 10 matches and only lost once.
The hosts didn't have the same success in the Nations League as they finished third in their League A group below Italy and the Netherlands with only two wins in six matches, of which they lost three times.
Poland's recent track record hasn't been stellar either as they've only won one out of their last six games across all competitions, which took place last March against Andorra.
The White and Reds also count two losses during that same period of time ahead of their Euro 2020 opener
Poland and Slovakia's first ever meeting, ever since the latter's independence, took place in 2007 during an international friendly in Spain that ended 2-2.
Since then, the two sides have faced off a total of five times with the Slovakians winning a majority of three matches, compared to the Poles' one and only victory.
Poland defeated their Group E opponents for the first time in 2012 during an international friendly in Austria thanks to Damien Perquis' winner.
However, Slovakia won their most recent encounter away in 2013, in another friendly game, with a score of 2-0
GOOD AFTERNOON FROM SAINT PETERSBURG
Welcome to our live coverage of the Euro 2020 group stage match between Poland and Slovakia at the Saint Petersburg Stadium.
This marks the first match of Group E where both competitors have also been drawn with Spain as well as Sweden, who play later on tonight.
Poland manager Paulo Sousa suffered an injury crisis in the build-up to this summer's delayed competition as he lost Crotone loanee Arkadiusz Reca, Derby defender Krystian Bielik and Hertha Berlin star Krzysztof Piatek to injury.
Napoli star Arkadiusz Milik, who spent the season on loan at Marseille and made the Euro 2020 squad, has also suffered a knee injury.
Southampton ace Jan Bednarek is also recovering from an ankle issue but is expected to be deemed fit for Poland's kick-off match.
Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski is set to lead the attack, as expected, with the likes of Derby ace Kamil Jozwiak and PAOK's Karol Swiderski fighting for a place next to the Bundesliga's top scorer.
Slovakia manager Stefan Tarkovic, on the other hand, has been relatively free of any injury concerns as he will only be missing Slavia Prague forward Ivan Schranz due to a thigh injury.
Trabzonspor signing Marek Hamsik had been dealing with a calf issue but it was confirmed that the midfielder took part in full training without any problems
