Group B in the Euro 2012 qualifiers has proven to be an extremely tight affair so far, with Slovakia, Russia and the Republic of Ireland all tied on ten points at the top.
Just two points below are surprise package Armenia, who have defied some lengthy football betting odds to pick up two wins and two draws in five games.
One of those victories came at home, where they triumphed 3-1 over group leaders Slovakia, thanks to goals from Yura Movsisyan, Gevorg Ghazaryan and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
However, taking three points from this afternoon’s match in St Petersburg will be a different kettle of fish entirely.
Home advantage makes the Russians clear 9/50 favourites, but bwin.com is offering 23/2 betting odds on Armenia to cause an upset.
This means those who use their bwin £25 free bet to back the visitors could walk away with £312.50 if they snatch a victory.
A draw may also be an attractive wager, with a price of 11/2 meaning a successful £25 flutter would return £162.50 if the match ends in a stalemate.
Both sides will be desperate for victory and Dick Advocaat’s Russia will go all-out to press home their advantage.
They will know that Slovakia are likely to pick up three points at home to Andorra, while the Republic of Ireland are expected to beat Macedonia away after recently winning the Carling Nations Cup with a 1-0 victory over Scotland.
With both sides desperate to win, it could be a tense affair and some international football betting fans might be tempted to have a flutter on guessing the correct scoreline.
Using your bwin £25 free bet on a 2-1 win for Russia could return a whopping £250 if the home side run out victorious, thanks to odds of 9/1.
Meanwhile, football betting fans can also get a price of 30/1 on Armenia to snatch a 1-0 victory, which would mean a payout of £775 for the same stake.
