EURO 2012: Czech Republic vs Poland
Czech Republic is coming into this game after much better performance in the second round as they won over Greece 2:1 and saved their chances of progressing to the next stage. After quite poor performance in the first round, where they lost to Russia 1:4 and where almost overwritten regarding their chances, they bounced back with quite a better performance against the Greeks who had many problems making their starting XI and in combination with the other result that day in their group, they have now very good chances to progress from this group. All they need to, is not to lose here which will probably be enough for them (as it’s hard to expect the Greeks to win over Russia and to have even more complicated situation).

Poland, on the other hand, could be satisfied after their draw against Russia 1:1, as they were losing during the game and the things didn’t look that positive for them at that match. However, this was their second draw (after also playing 1:1 with Greeks at EURO 2012 opener) and the things aren’t looking that bright for them at this stage. They are third, with two points, one less then their opponents from Czech Republic and two points less then Russians who will meet the Greeks (in a game where the Russians are big favorites). In such a situation, the Poles will have to win this game against the Czechs no matter what, as they can’t pass with a draw only in any other scenario.
In such a situation, we should see attacking Poland from the start of the game. This is do or die game for them as they are in a must win situation. For them, as the hosts would be a very disappointing result anything except win on Saturday’s night. Czech Republic, on the other side, showed in both their games that they are very dangerous on counter attacks (it was especially obvious from time to time against Russia – against stronger opponents who controlled the ball), so similar performance from Czech Republic is probably. Goals are written all over this game as one of the teams destiny (Polish), doesn’t have to do anything with the other result and they are expected to give everything they can in order to win and make a very open football game here.
