Group A favourites Russia are well on course for a place in the knockout stage following their 4-1 hammering of the Czech Republic last Friday night, and they will be confident of making it two wins from two games when they take on co-hosts Poland this evening.
Andrey Arshavin played a starring role in the rout of the Czechs, showing Arsenal supporters a level of performance he has failed to produce during his time at the Emirates Stadium, and he is the subject of Ladbrokes’ money back promotion for tonight’s match.
If Arshavin scores first or last in the Poland v Russia match, Ladbrokes will refund losing first goalscorer bets, up to £100, as a free bet.
Russia’s blistering start to the competition suggests there could be goals in this one, with Alan Dzagoev already emerging as a contender for the tournament’s Golden Boot award. Dzagoev helped himself to a brace against the Czechs and he is 7/1 to be the first goalscorer here, with Roman Pavlyuchenko available at the same odds following his goal in game one.
Robert Lewandowski will once again be the main threat for Poland. Lewandowski enjoyed a fine 2011/12 campaign as his goals helped Borussia Dortmund secure the German Bundesliga title for the second season running, and it appears as though he is bringing that good form into this competition. The 23-year-old netted in Poland’s opening-day draw with Greece and he is 6/1 to add to that strike with the first goal of this encounter.
In terms of match betting, Russia are 13/10 to register their second straight victory in this tournament, with Poland 11/5 to grab their first win and the draw 9/4.
