2014 World Cup Free Picks: Japan vs. Greece
6 p.m., Thursday, June 19 – Estadio das Dunas, Natal (ESPN)
Match Betting Lines
Japan is +131 in this match with their opponents Greece being priced as +250 underdogs. The draw is listed at +240 and the total for this match is 2.5 goals.
Japan showed a bag of mixed results in their first group play match against Ivory Coast. Keisuke Honda was every bit the superstar he is labeled as, while Shinji Kagawa really lacked quality in the middle of the pitch. Japan needs a more balanced attack, and more importantly they need to finish better in the final third of the field.
The Greeks are clearly the odd man out in this group. They were very much outclassed against Colombia, and it will take a supreme effort not to lose to a technically brilliant Japanese side that will surely be ready for a bounce back performance.
Japan showed potential in defeat, while Greece was very uninspiring in their loss. The middle of the field is where Japan will look to inflict harm in this match. Greece has a size advantage, but they don’t bring a whole lot to the table to sell me on a potential win.
Key Injuries, Suspensions, Yellow Cards
Both teams are likely to suit up similar line-ups barring any tactical changes.
Japan will fight and get the three points. They were unlucky to have just one goal against Ivory Coast, and here I see them netting several times in victory to keep their chances of the knockout stages alive.
