Colombia - Greece (Estadio Mineirao ; 13:00)



Colombia will be playing this one without their main man, Falcao, but still look to be the favorites going up against the ultra-mega-defensive Greeks, who are heading into their second-straight World Cup for the first time in their history. Colombia have depth to fill in for Falcao (well, not like for like but still) but can someone step up to fill in as a leader?

I have a 3-1 victory for Colombia.

Interesting thing I read in the build up to this game is Colombia have had 10 red cards in last 12 games (5 in first half), Greece have had 6 red cards in 10 games. Will be a fiery encounter.

This game is purely offense vs defense.

From the little I've seen of this Greece team, they are quite different from their Euro 2004 ultra bunker team.

both Greece and Colombia have had chances. I think it's a fairly entertaining game

good game, the early goal forces Greece to attack, Colombia rather comfortable so far but Greece have shown some bright moments. I never liked Holebas btw, seems so suspect defensively, he was a disaster at Euro 2012 as well

There's no high profile teams like England so for her it's boring I guess. But yeah it's the most balanced group.

Thought you were a Colombia fan? Though obviously Greece is an easy choice for serbs as well.
