Greece vs Finland Prediction
Greece managed to bring about a six-match winless run to a halt in their last clash at home against Bosnia & Herzegovina after a late own goal from Adnan Kovacevic tipped the scales in favor of the hosts. Be that as it may, it is too late for John van’t Schip’s men to be back in contention for a top-two finish.
With no more than two wins to boast of from their last eight games, Greece have all but confirmed their exit from the tournament.
On the other hand, Finland are sizing up to be the favorites to tag alongside Italy from Group J. The visitors bounced back from a two-match losing streak in their previous home game by slotting three unanswered goals past Armenia. Also, the Finnish outfit have picked up the win in half of their last four outings.
Meanwhile, Greece have been finding it hard to cope with the pressure, even with home advantage at hand. The squad have secured the bragging rights just once in their last four games here. As such, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Finland at the end of the ninety minutes.
However, Greece got the better of this foe in their last h2h clash on Greek soil. With the hosts unbeaten in their last two games here too, the safest punt would have to be a double chance backing Finland.
Furthermore, irrespective of the result, the hosts have found the back of the net at least once in each of their previous three clashes here. Taking into account that the home side have managed to breach this foe in six of their last seven meetings here too, count on both teams to have their names on the score sheet in this one.
