thumbnail Hello,

Sitting in third place with two points and one behind Czech Republic, Poland come into its final group stage match on the verge of elimination and needing a win to advance.

While Michal Bilek's crew looked excellent in the first half of its opening match against Greece and was able to snatch a point following a hard fought match against the Russians earlier in the week, the test against the Czechs will be its biggest yet and winning in front of the home crowd is the only option.


Poland is favorite to win at 2.25 and appears to be the bettors choice worldwide today.

If you think Poland will open up very strong as it did against Greece then maybe you should take a look at the halftime/fulltime which pays out 3.75 should the Poles emerge ahead at the end of both halves.


Robert Lewandowski, the face of the team and its most deadly offensive threat, must step up a level to solidify the hero status that Andriy Shevchenko has entrenched for himself. The best way to do that is to score goals and Lewandowski is currently paying 6.00 to open up the scoring, while the payout to score at any given point in the match is at 2.50.


Should Euro 2004 Golden Boot winner Tomas Rosicky delight the Czech fans with the opener he is paying out 9.00 while the score at anytime bet sees him offered at 3.75

If you are worried about the possibility of a draw ruining your pick, then perhaps you should take a look at the Asian Handicap lines which see Poland at -0.0/-0.5 paying 1.98 and the Czech's at 1.90 for the +0.0/+0.5.


Deperate times call for desperate measures and should either team find themselves down a goal in the second half you can bet that the rest of the match will open up tremendously, which could lead to some sloppy defensive play or swift counter attacks. The over 2.5 here sees a payout of 2.08 which isn't bad considering the circumstances, while the under is at 1.80.

With both games going on at the same time today, another bet to take a look at would be the double where you could have a Poland and Russian victory issued at 3.87. So if you lay down $10 on that bet you could take in $38.70.
