Argentina were hammered 4-1 by Nigeria in their last friendly and the side can expect another stern test from Poland this afternoon. The visitors played poorly in Abuja and Sergio Batista will be demanding a much improved performance.
La Albiceleste are on a poor run of form which has seen the side win just once in five outings. Punters backing the Argentines might argue that the manager has played a number of youngsters during that period as the Copa America is fast approaching.
The hosts are not exactly flying at the minute either, but they will be desperate to claim the scalp of the two-time World Cup winners in Warsaw. With that in mind, Franciszek Smuda should field a strong starting XI that will cause plenty of problems for their opponents.
Goals have been hard to come by for the Poles and their most recent outing ended in a goalless draw with Greece. Looking a little further back, one can will find that Poland have scored just twice in four internationals.
Given that Poland have struggled in the attacking penalty box and that Argentina are playing their second game in a week, I can see this one ending all square. The draw is currently trading at around 3.3 and that looks the way to go here.
RECOMMENDATION: (1-10 points)
Back the draw at around 3.3: 4 points
