Russia and the Czech Republic are due to go head to head in the EURO 2012’s opening day, as they both will try to do their best to qualify into the knockout stages of the tournament.
Arsenal have once again sent most of their best players off on international duty, and although we have yet seen the likes of Robin Van Persie, Walcott, Chamberlain or Koscielny, we can be happy to see that the Gunners are ruling the opening day of the European Championships.
Andrey Arshavin and Thomas Rosicky are the best two players of their respective sides, and it seems that although they’re not in their youth anymore, people still expect them to be the ones who will clinch the winner.
Arshavin is currently on loan at Zenit and is expected to leave for good this summer, while Rosicky just extended his contract with the Gunners. Tonight the Russians seem to have the upper hand, as the bookies offer them a 6/4 odd of winning the game and rate the Czechs with a mere 9/4 odd.
Thomas Rosicky has a 5/1 odd of scoring in the game, being one known for his passes rather than for his goals, while Arshavin has a 5/2 odd of getting the ball in Petr Cech’s net.
Who do you think will be victorious tonight?
