Poland vs Russia
I wish I could write a longer analysis on this match but it is impossible. If Poland cannot win Greece with 10 players on their opening match in front of their own crowd how can they hope for anything else? Especially against Russia who seems to be on fire… The only thing that they can do is defend massively and go after the draw. I think it would be a disaster if they choose to play an open and go for a win.
The Russians had a great opening performance and I think they will do what is necessary to proceed to the Round of 8. I only wonder whether they intend to respect the hosts or not. Russia’s win @2.40 seems fair enough to get through with their qualification and let the others worry about it.
