Greece – Finland, European Qualifiers Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR GREECE - FINLAND
Greece finally gave its fans joy and optimism with 2 consecutive wins in the groups. The Greeks beat Bosnia in the second leg of the previous break, and a few days ago took 3 points with a clean sheet against Armenia. They are a whole 7 points behind Finland, which are 2nd, but if you win today this difference can be 4 points and if nothing else, at least the Greeks will make a decent asset, which will be very good against the backdrop of their tragic presentation overall in these groups.
Finland qualified for the first time in history for a major tournament after beating Liechtenstein and thus certainly finished 2nd in the group. The stadium scenes after the match were great. A huge number of fans stormed the field and the celebration is still on. Undoubtedly, this was truly the most memorable performance of Finland in history and these players, along with the coach, Kanerva, are absolute heroes in their country.
Expert view : Given the circumstances of this match and even the form of the two teams, it is definitely not easy to make a prediction. Whatever the forecast here, it cannot be supported by so many arguments. We will rely on logic. Finland and Greece are first and foremost defensive teams with strong defenses. Finland is just looking to celebrate right now. Pukki is not in top form, even though he scores 2 goals against weak Liechtenstein. The Greeks, on the other hand, win the games by 1 goal difference. Prediction – Under 2.5 goals for 1.56.
4 of Greece’s last 5 games have under 2.5 goals
