Euro 2012, Group A, Final Round: Gamethread

New, 43 comments

The final round of group action starts today with Group A wrapping up. Poland plays Czech Republic and Russia plays Greece. All four teams are still alive with Russia only needing a tie to secure their advancement. A tie in that game would also mean the Czechs could advance with a tie.

Teams P W D L F A +/- Pts
Russia Russia 2 1 1 0 5 2 3 4
Czech Republic Czech Republic 2 1 0 1 3 5 -2 3
Poland Poland 2 0 2 0 2 2 0 2
Greece Greece 2 0 1 1 2 3 -1 1

Contrary to popular belief, the first tiebreaker in this tournament is actually head-to-head. That means Greece would possess the first tiebreaker if they end up tied with only Russia. The only way that happens is if Poland can beat the Czechs, as a three-way tiebreaker would then go to goal-differential in this case as all three teams would have 3 points in their three-way competition.
