Greece and Ivory Coast can both still reach the last 16 ahead of their scrap in Fortaleza but the latter currently occupy second spot and the Elephants are just 1/3 at Coral to progress.
A draw (13/5, bet365) would be enough for the Ivorians provided Japan fail to beat Colombia but Sabri Lamouchi’s troops won’t want to rely on other results and they can book their place in the next phase by claiming maximum points.
Bookies agree, BetVictor pricing the Ivory Coast at 11/10 to come out on top (Greece are 14/5 via Betfred) and they’re a 3/1 shot courtesy of Ladbrokes to prevail by a one-goal margin.
The Greeks meanwhile, have yet to score so it might be wiser to back a victory ‘to nil’ for the Ivorians, an outcome betway chalk up at 12/5.
Ivory Coast to beat Greece ‘to nil’ – 12/5 (betway)
