Poland to pounce on Lithuanians

401

Poland could well be a dark horse to do well in Russia and are likely to smash Lithuania this evening.

Poland (-3) 15/4 on the three-way handicap

The White and Reds topped a tough qualifying group involving Denmark and with the conditions expected to suit them at the World Cup, they will fancy themselves to make the knockout stages.

A 2-2 draw with Chile on Friday showed both their strengths and weakness, as after blowing La Roja away early on to be 2-0 up after 34 minutes, they soon took their eye off the ball and had to settle for a draw.

This game looks perfect for them to build confidence and they will face a Lithuania side with just one win since October 2016.

Despite these two sharing a border and having plenty of common history, it is hardly a grudge match and Adam Nawalka’s men should run out easy winners.

Striker Robert Lewandowski will again be his nation’s talisman in Russia and is in fine scoring form, netting three in his last four for club and country.

Having bagged against the Chileans, he will smell blood against a Lithuanian defence who conceded an average of two a game in qualification.

Lewandowski was the joint-top scorer in qualifying with 16 goals so look out for him to run riot in Warsaw.
