Over the past 6 years or so the Greeks have proven very hard to beat. They play dour defensive football and rely a lot on set pieces and this is what I'll be focusing on for betting tips in the Greece v South Korea game. They like to fire balls into the box for their big men like Samaras and Charisteas to attack. Both are fine headers of the ball. Generally, Asian teams do not boast big powerful defenders and I can see this game potentially being won or lost the from the set pieces. Samaras seems to be the preferred striker at the moment and I'll be backing him to give the Greeks the advantage in this 1.
