<3.25> <3.20> <1.97>

Greece are going to ditch their 5 man defence and go for an attacking 4-3-3. Russia still have Pogrebnyak and Andrei Arshavin out for this match. It's a very hard match to predict, but I think I'll have to go with Russia as 1) The Greece curse has been broken. 2) Greece are a bunch of "shitkickers". 3) Zhirkov has the ability to deliver killer balls that will really trouble the Greece defence. It might be a draw, but gut feeling says Russia win. And my gut feeling has been pretty accurate of late.

- Roland's prediction: $5 on Russia @ 1.97 = $9.85

russia showed on opening day that they have the quality to deal with top teams, playing on a par with spain before falling away due to the spectacular form of david villa. against a team that is clearly one of the worst in the championships this time around, i fully expect russia to win. what i'm not so happy about is the "heavy boat", as almost everyone i know is going for a russia win, which scares me. in any case, i'm backing russia tonight, as i think the likes of pavlyuchenko, zhirkov, sychev and co. have too much for "THE SHITKICKERS".

- Eddy's prediction: $10 on russia @ 1.97 = $19.70
$5 on russia to score 1st goal @ 1.75 = $8.75
