Let’s start EURO 2012 ! The main football event in this season. 16 teams only one winner and lots of emotions.
An opening match between Poland (FIFA ranking: 65) and Greece (FIFA ranking: 14) in the most flat group A. Poland has the lowest FIFA ranking from all participants in this tournament however they are host and this always helps. Greece won group H in EURO eliminations. Both teams are defensive. I do not expect much action here. Pressure will be big in the 1st match. Sportbooks offer us the line under 2 in this match which is very tight but correct. I am going with Poland under 1, 25 goals here. Greece concided only 5 goals in 10 matches during eliminations. On the other hand Poland scored 2 goals only 6 times since 2011 (17 matches). The biggest team stars:
Poland – Szczesny (goalkeeper), Piszczek (defender), Blaszczykowski (midfielder), Lewandowski (forward)
Greece – Papadopoulos (defender), Papastathopoulos (defender), Katsouranis (midfielder).
