The result in this afternoon’s match between Poland and Argentina could very much depend on what team shows up for the visitors.
Regardless of the line-up, the starting 11 and any substitutes will have to play a lot better if they are to make amends for the recent 4-1 drubbing at the hands of Nigeria, which left Argentina betting fans empty-handed.
At 21/20 on bwin.com, the South Americans are the clear favourites. However, the experimental tactics taken by manager Sergio Batista in the last game could prove to be their demise if he repeats his team selection.
Those who use bwin’s £25 free bet to back Poland in the match could walk away with a tidy £82.50 if the home side are victorious.
Despite the fact that Batista is likely to once again name a team that is missing many key players, Poland coach Franciszek Smuda is refusing to take Argentina lightly.
“[Some of the players] are not worldwide-known, but most of them play in European teams so it proves their quality,” he said.
“We know Argentina are always a strong team, but they should respect our team too. If they feel over-confident, they may be surprised by our football.”
If this does occur and Poland manage to replicate the same scoreline that Nigeria inflicted on the visitors, football betting fans who predict the outcome could walk away with a tidy sum.
Using bwin’s £25 free bet to back a 4-1 Poland victory would return an astonishing £1,675 if the Europeans repeat the feat achieved by the Super Eagles earlier in the week.
However, Argentina will be determined to make up for the humiliation suffered at the hands of Nigeria and get back on track for the upcoming Copa America.
Pablo Zabaleta, who captained the side during the game in Africa, explained that it is essential that Batista’s men pick themselves up.
“The group has been affected by the defeat. We have been criticised a lot, but in difficult moments we must be strong,” he said.
