WARSAW, POLAND (AP) - The elephant who got her first Euro 2012 prediction wrong has a chance for redemption.

Citta has now picked Poland to beat Russia in their Group A match Tuesday. The 33-year-old female pachyderm at the Krakow Zoo chose a melon marked for the co-host nation over those marked for Russia and for a draw.

In her first try, Citta predicted Poland would beat Greece in the tournament’s opening match, which ended in a 1-1 draw Friday. Zoo spokesman Jerzy Pirog says the elephant made her latest choice Monday.

Two years after Paul the Octopus became a household name by correctly predicting eight matches at the 2010 World Cup, several pretenders to the throne have cropped up in Poland and co-host Ukraine.
