Greece are currently bottom of Group A with just one point from their opening two games, where as Russia are top with four points so far.
Russia can qualify even if they lose this game, as long as the Poland vs. Czech Republic result goes their way. Only if Russia lose by six clear goals or more, and Greece and the Czech Republic draw their game, will they go out.
However, Russia will still be looking to try and finish top of Group A, as the runners up of this group will potentially face Germany, who look likely to win Group B. The Germans have been one of the stand out teams of the tournament and it could be wise to try and avoid them until absolutely necessary.
Greece must win this game, and hope the other group game ends in a draw to go through.
Russian goalkeeper Vyacheslav Malafeev has said, "We need to forget that a draw will also put us into the knockout stage and score. Once, twice... as much as we can."
Russia will be hot favorites for this game. The game will kick off at 2.45 p.m. EST and will be broadcast live on ESPN 2. It can also be watched through online live streaming on ESPN 3 by clicking HERE.
