Greek Captain Kostas Katsouranis will miss after being sent off against Ivory Coast, and Panagiotis Koneis is in serious doubt with an injury. There are no injury concerns for Costa Rica.

Prediction & Tip

Costa Rica have surprised everyone this tournament, and played some very nice football to finish top of their group. Greece have been less appealing, only winning one game along the way and drawing another, and making it through to this match with a last minute goal against Ivory Coast. So it will be Costa Rica to get the win here. Greece just haven’t shown enough to be considered and will be bowing out after this game. The 11/8 being offered by Ladbrokes for a Costa Rica win looks like easy money to us.
