Our football match prediction:
Stadion Narodowy in Warsaw will host the match between Poland and Armenia. The Poles recorded a 3-2 win over Denmark in the Group E derby on Saturday evening, with Robert Lewandowski scoring a hat-trick for Adam Nawalka’s men. The Bayern Munich attacker impressed against Denmark and he is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders in Tuesday’s football match against Armenia. The visitors were hammered by Romania (0-5) at the weekend and seeing that key player Mkhitaryan is likely to miss the match with injury, we predict that Poland are going to pick up all three points from their third group game. In their last meeting in a competitive match Armenia emerged triumphant and, no doubt, Adam Nawalka’s team will give 100% to get their revenge on the former Soviet republic. Taking everything into account, home win appears on the horizon in this one.
Highlighted Player (Jakub Rzezniczak):
The 29-year-old Polish defender Jakub Rzezniczak plays for Legia Warsaw as a centre-back. Long-serving soldier for the Polish giants has been with the club since 2004 and has amassed more than 230 league appearances, performing as club’s captain and one of the most reliable first-team members. Rzezniczak helped Legia to four Ekstraklasa titles, six Polish Cup trophies and one Polish Supercup. Following his 20 league appearances in the title-winning season for the Militarians, Jakub Rzezniczak struggled to keep his place in the team with his future with Legia put in serious doubt over the summer of 2016. Rzezniczak was heavily criticised, not only for his poor performances for the team, but only for fi equally poor attitude and social media activities which put a serious dent in his reputation and relationship with the Polish club. Determined to get back in favour with both the club and the fans, Rzezniczak vowed to be at his best behaviour in order to make a serious contribution in his team’s UEFA Champions League challenge.
Highlighted Team (Poland):
Poland have recently emerged as one of Europe’s top sides, although they did enjoy some success during the 70’s and 80’s. The White Eagles impressed to achieve third-place finish at the 1974 and 1982 World Cup tournaments, while they also win the 1972 Olympics, albeit with an amateur side. Poland started showing improvement at the turn of the century, slowly becoming regular at major tournaments and they even co-hosted the Euro 2012 with Ukraine, but disappointed home fans to crash out in the group stage. The new generation, boasting players like Robert Lewandowski, Arkadiusz Milik, Lukas Piszczek, Grzegorz Krychowiak and Jakub Blaszczykowski, has the potential to help the national team return to old glory days, with some talented players also coming through the youth ranks. Zbigniew Boniek, Wlodzimierz Lubanski and Grzegorz Lato are some of the other players who have impressed playing for the national team, which has been playing their home games at the National Stadium in Warsaw.
