Greece vs Nigeria preview – Group B

Greece will meet Nigeria in their second round Group B match of the 2010 World Cup on Friday 18th June at 12:00am Melbourne time at the lovely Free State Stadium, Bloemfontein, South Africa.

Nigeria defeated Greece 2-0 the last time these two sides met in International competition at the 1994 World Cup.

Both teams had losses in their opening games and will be desperate for points here or their World Cup dream could be over very quickly.

WCI Rating: 2.5
1st half: 1.0
2nd half: 1.5

The Greece team were very ordinary against South Korea and they played with a lack of intensity that was nowhere near good enough.

Argentina 1-0 Nigeria
6m G. Heinze

WCI Rating: 7
1st half: 3.5
2nd half: 3.5

Nigeria played with an unpredictable fluency against Argentina and they were able to get through the South Americans defence at times to create plenty of problems.

Greece vs Nigeria Preview

A proud Greece will no doubt be out to make amends for their abysmal first-up effort and we can expect a much better effort here from the Greeks if they have any character at all.

Nigeria could have quite easily have gotten the nod over Argentina such was their effort and they went down by one goal in a wonderful effort.

Greece vs Nigeria Match Prediction

The Greeks are sure to play better here with an early exit on the cards if they don’t, and if that can’t inspire them then nothing will. Nigeria played quality football against a top team in Argentina and when you compare both sides first round matches, Nigeria should win this game very comfortably and you can get $2.00 about them which is great value for ours.

Back Nigeria to win at Sportsbet and consider taking the double with Argentina which will be around 2.88 unless you can get better at Betfair as they generally have the best odds available.
