Greece vs Czech Republic Preview

This will be the first game of the second round of matches and both teams will be looking for their first win of the tournament.

Greece played in the opening match of the competition against co hosts Poland, they battled to a draw that day and would have felt they should have nicked all three points following their missed penalty. The Czech Republic were hammered by Russia in their opening game and know that they will need to get something from this game to stand any chance of progression.

The Czechs actually started pretty well against the Russians and looked a threat on the attacking front, this complied with the Greek's defensive worries, will give them confidence going into this clash. Greece will take confidence from their second half performance against Poland, they really should have won the game after creating a number of chances but the same old problem of not scoring goals came back to haunt them.

I think the Czechs will win this, they pose much more of an attacking threat and I see them qualifying behind Russia in the group. Greece will probably be beaten by Russia in the final game so they need to win this one and I can't see them doing that, I see them on the plane home before the quarters.
