Group A Euro Cup Odds: Russia vs. Czech Republic Predicted Results

Russia vs. Czech Republic Picks: Arshavin To Save The Day In Tight Match: Team Russia and Team Czech Republic should be involved in quite the interesting battle on the Euro 2012 betting lines in Group A action on Friday afternoon. Both of these teams have the ability to pour in goals in bunches, and as a result, we expect to see a fantastic fixture on the opening day of the tournament.

The edge is clearly going to start on the side of the Russians, who are expected to take all three points from this fixture. They are the favorites on the odds to win Group A in the Euro Cup, and they are the team that has the best history here in this tournament of late, being semifinalists in Euro 2008. Of course, the last time that we saw the Czechs in this tournament, Petr Cech was embarrassed by Turkey, a team that really had no business even getting into the quarterfinals of Euro 2008. The Turks came back from down 2-0 to win 3-2, a lead that was blown to bits in a span of less than 15 minutes of play. The Czechs are here for some payback, but they know that they are going to have an uphill battle, especially in this fixture.

The question here is going to be whether the Czech Republic is going to be able to slow down the Russian attack or not. What we have seen in the past is that Cech is one of the best net minders in the world. There really is no doubt about that. However, he was starting to show some cracks in Euro 2008, and he wasn’t at his best this year, even when he was totally healthy with Chelsea, though he was the net minder that won the 2011-12 Champions League crown this year. Still, this is a team that really doesn’t have all that much of an identity, whereas we absolutely know that the Russians are going to be sending tons of men forward under the direction of Manager Dick Advocaat, a Dutchman that has the offensive mentality that the rest of his country has as well.

What we have seen of late from the Russians, we definitely have liked. They went on the road and beat the Italians in dominating 3-0 fashion just a week ago, and that came on the heels of beating the Danes 2-0 in Copenhagen back in February. This was a team that was able to score a ton of goals in qualifying against the lesser teams that it faced, including dropping six on Andorra, three on Armenia, and three on Ireland.

Meanwhile, what we have seen from the Czech Republic hasn’t been nearly as appealing. The team had to fight to a playoff to take on Montenegro to reach this point, and since then, the team has only played two fixtures. Surprisingly, Hungary bounced the Czechs 2-1 in the final tune up for Euro 2012, and that came on the heels a 1-1 draw in Dublin against the Republic of Ireland.

Russia vs. Czech Republic Match Preview & Analysis: We are really surprised that the Russian are in a position where they are only +120 to win this match. We think that they are going to get the job done with Arshavin in the end, and we are going to see the Czechs choke away yet another fixture at the end to put them behind the 8-ball right away.
