In the last round of the group stage of the UEFA Nations League, Greece and Slovenia will determine in a head-to-head confrontation who of them is more worthy of a promotion. How will the fight on November 18 in Athens turn out? – the answer will be provided by the forecast prepared by the experts of our site.
The Greek national team failed to qualify for the European Championship. The squad is now trying to prove itself in the UEFA Nations League, where it is fighting the Slovaks for promotion.
The assets of John Van ‘t Schip’s charges have eleven points and the second position in the group, and the gap from the nearest rival is two points. Thus, the hosts will only be satisfied with the victory in the upcoming match. On November 15, the Greeks defeated Moldova on a visit (2: 0), extending the unbeaten streak to four matches in a row.
Slovenia has lost points only once in the current UEFA Nations League. It happened in the starting round when the Slovenes hosted the Greeks (0: 0).
After that, the team issued a streak of four victories in a row – Moldova (1: 0, 4: 0) and Kosovo (1: 0, 2: 1). Matjaz Kek’s wards achieve positive results due to reliable play in defense – one conceded goal in five meetings. To keep the first line, which guarantees the transfer to division B, guests only need to play in a draw.
In four out of five matches of Greece in the League of Nations, there was a bet on TM 2.5
Slovenia has never defeated Greece away – two draws and one defeat
Greece unbeaten in six past home games – four wins and two draws
In the previous two head-to-head meetings, the teams scored no more than two goals
03.09.20 Slovenia Greece 0: 0
The upcoming match in Athens is important for both teams. The first position in the group will give the opportunity to spend the next season of the UEFA Nations League in company with stronger rivals.
Neither Greeks nor Slovaks are distinguished by high performance. Both teams prefer pragmatic football and are unlikely to deviate from this concept in such a responsible meeting. Considering the above, we suggest playing a bet on the classic “bottom”.
Our forecast is the total under 2.5 goals with the odds of 1.65 on the line of the bookmaker’s office 1 x Bet .
