So it is being assumed that the opening match of Group C will be an exciting one. The South American’s will be looking for a strong start in a tough Group with a victory over Greece. Colombia reached the finals finishing second in the South American section from the CONMEBOL region in second place behind Argentina with an impressive (9-3-4) record.

BBC TV, BBC Radio 5 live and BBC Sport website are going to broadcast this opening match of group C or the 5th match of 2014 FIFA World Cup hosted by Brazil.
Players to watch:
Most eyes will be on the rampaging Radamel Falcao while this Colombian striker was dominant in South American qualifying and scored nine goals in 13 matches. AC Milan defender’s experience of 50 international caps, and over 200 appearances will be definitely wealthy enough for this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.
Sokratis Papastathopolous, the 25-year-old has a good mixture of experience and youth. He will stand as a first choice defender at German giants Borussia Dortmund. Mitroglou also will be a constant threat for the Columbian defense.
Head to head:
Colombia are the hotly favorites to win Group C while Greece are forecasted to finish at the bottom. They will need to out muscle Greece in most parts of the game. Unlike Colombia, Greece is not going to a smooth route to this summer’s competition in Brazil. Falcao player of Colombia is one of the most expensive players in the world at Monaco. In contrast, Sokratis from Greece is in one of Europe’s most exciting club sides in Borussia Dortmund.
Date: 05 Jun 1994, Match: Colombia v Greece, Result: Colombia wins by 2-0, Competition: International
The guess here is that Colombia, with or without Radamel Falcao will be able to defeat more defensive-minded Greek side. Experts also predicted that possibly even 2-1 score line will come from the match of June 14th in Belo Horizonte.
Which team do you think will win? The national football team of Colombia, coached by Jose Pekerman are odds on favorites to get their World Cup off to a winning start against Greece. So bet on your favorite team or who you think will win.
