    Match Preview

    Japan meet Greece in Natal on June 19, for both sides' second game of the 2014 World Cup. One of the most competitive groups, Group C is hard to call - meaning any points picked up by either Japan and/or Greece could prove vital when deciding their final positions in the group.

    Although Japan and Greece have never played each other in a World Cup tournament before, Japan did shade their 2005 Confederations Cup meeting 1-0 in what is their only previous fixture. Japan and Greece both have goalscorers in their team, if their last six games are anything to go by, so there should be plenty of free-flowing attacking football during this fixture.

    With two players in each squad netting three times in their country's previous six games, there are plenty of options for anyone looking to place goalscorer bets on this game. Japan will look for Okazaki and Honda to hit the back of the net in Brazil, while Mitrolglou and Salpingidis are most likely to be Greece's main offensive outlets.
