Poland Greece Odds : Lewandowski to fire hosts to Euro 2012 win

Poland and Greece get Euro 2012 underway on Friday evening when the two sides go head to head in Warsaw, as Paddy Power make the host nation evens to take all three points, which is sure to attract plenty of attention from punters.

Poland are sure to create a fantastic atmosphere on home soil and this tournament will have been something the whole country would have been looking forward too for a long time.

The co-hosts go into the match in a good run of form, winning five from their last six and conceding just one goal in the process.

Franciszek Smuda’s men have not played a competitive match since 2009 as they automatically qualified for Euro 2012. It will be a big test for the side to cope with the big pressure situation. However, home support is likely to play a big part and work in their favour.

Robert Lewandowski is sure to strike fear into opposition defences this summer after his great goal scoring form for Borussia Dortmund last season. Lewandowski found the net 23 times across all competitions for Dortmund and also scored for Poland last time out, and if Poland are to get anywhere near the finals this summer, much depends on the young starlet.

As for Greece, they of course won the European Championships back in 2004 which was a massive surprise and something they can use to their advantage.

Fernando Santos’ men have won just one match in their previous five so will need to find some form this time out.

The 2004 winners did win their qualifying group ahead of Croatia though so they are certainly not to be taken lightly in this competition. They also conceded just five goals throughout qualification.

Greece are not a side with too many big names, what they will be looking to do is work harder than any other team and make themselves hard to beat.

A win in the first match of the group stage sets you up superbly to qualify for the knockout stages which makes this game massive for both teams.

It is all set to be a great contest and it gets underway from 5pm on Friday.
