Bet of the day: Blaszczykowski to poach for Poland against Portugal anytime
Holly Thackeray | June 30, 2016
Coral’s bet of the day
- Blaszczykowski has bagged in both his previous Poland outings
- The White Eagles have been defeated just once in their last 13 games
- Poland have failed to find the net only twice in their past 14
- Portugal have not won in normal time at Euro 2016 so far, conceding four in as many matches
Blaszczykowski 10/3 to bag anytime
Poland’s Jakub Blaszczykowski is the subject of Coral’s latest bet of the day, as the winger takes to the pitch with the White Eagles to face Portugal in the first Euro 2016 quarter-final clash.
For this featured Thursday flutter, Borussia Dortmund-owned dangerman Blaszczykowski is a terrific 10/3 to find the target anytime against the Navigators within 90 minutes.
Read on to find out why we fancy the flank threat for a third tournament goal…
In-form Blaszczykowski flying for White Eagles
Every team needs a tournament hero and, though Poland are stuffed with star names from the likes of Robert Lewandowski to Arkadiusz Milik, it is Blaszczykowski’s bold and brilliant performances from the flanks for the Poles that has seen him anointed their best hope.
Dortmund’s Blaszczykowski appears refreshed from his time on loan at Fiorentina, with sparkling showings so far in France, meaning his parent club might just want to cling onto the winger – or cash in for a pretty penny on the back of his attacking antics.
Two goals in as many of his last matches plus an assist means the former Wisla Krakow wideman, who has given BVB eight seasons of superb service, is the leading scorer for his nation and just one behind joint top tournament scorers Gareth Bale, Antoine Griezmann and Alvaro Morata.
Among good company with two competition goals alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, Dimitri Payet and co, Blaszczykowski could again prove the key man with his direct play, fine finishing and majestic movement.
The White Eagles should also feel confident of their ability to convert against a poor Portuguese contingent that has struggled to create, won none of their outings at Euro 2016 in normal time so far and conceded four in as many games, while Poland have only failed to poach twice in their past 14.
With all that in mind, plus buoyant Blaszczykowski as the in-form forward, back the Truskolasy-born attacker at 10/3 to tuck another chance away anytime in 90 minutes.
