Greece vs Finland
UEFA – Nations League
Date: Thursday, 15 November 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Olympiako Stadio Spyros Louis (Athens).
Many human beings’s response in Greece while it changed into announced that Michael Skibbe become getting fired, changed into “that’s now not information; news is he stayed in price that lengthy”. Greece did adequate within the World Cup qualifiers, finished 2nd inside the group at the back of Belgium, and were given removed in the play-offs through Croatia. You all recognise how Belgium and Croatia did inside the World Cup finals. With this in thoughts, you can’t actually blame them for not being in Russia last summer time. On the alternative hand, their soccer became terrible, even in video games they gained. Especially in the Nations League, they have been surprisingly terrible, aside from brief elements of a couple of video games, once they attempted to… play soccer. They do have the players to provide something, now not simply defend, by way of Skibbe regarded… decided to preserve his own group… castrated (offensively). His successor, Anghelos Anastasiadis, is a… “unique” character. Deeply religious, he often mentions Virgin Mary(!) in his Press meetings. A former PAOK instruct (he has been very successful there), he’s the sort of tactician who permits his players to take initiatives, doesn’t dictate every single circulate of theirs, which appeared to be the case with Skibbe. Bottom line, for the reason that he took price only some days ago, I don’t count on Greece to begin scoring 2-3 dreams in each game proper away, however once the Euro qualifiers start, and he has been given more time to work with the crew, I can see them play their component in producing some… wild scores, the way all his groups have achieved inside the beyond, with massive wins registered, however additionally heavy losses.
After beating Greece at home, 2-zero, remaining month, Finland are… one step away from finishing first in the organization. They are six points in advance of 2nd-placed Greece, and, I repeat, they've crushed them now not 1-0, but 2-zero, already. On Sunday, Greece are website hosting Estonia, and Finland are playing in Budapest, towards Hungary. They want one point from their ultimate two suits to at ease the pinnacle spot. They are… ok regardless of losing both games, so long as they lose by using simplest one purpose to Greece. They are adequate despite dropping by two dreams in Greece, as long as they score. If this sport ends 2-zero for the Greeks, even then, Finland may be favorites to complete first, because of the overall intention difference in the group, between them and Greece.
