Greece vs Gibraltar
World Cup Qualifiers – Europe (Group H)
Date: Tuesday, 10th October 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium (Piraeus).
Greece are winless in last six matches in all competitions, but they will have the chance of reaching Russia if they are lucky enough with Bosnia’s and Wales’ results in final two fixtures.
Their fans will thus likely watch their competitors’ matches on Tuesday evening instead of their own as three points against Gibraltar are guaranteed in the final fixture of the campaign.
Michael Skibbe’s men have had huge troubles with the efficiency in the final third in the most recent period.
Greeks notched only three goals in last six matches in all competitions and they had a dismal run in September’s fixtures when they slipped up playing only a goalless draw with Estonia on the home soil.
Gibraltar officially have the weakest defensive line in the entire European zone of WC Qualifications having allowed 37 goals in opening eight matches.
Jeff Wood’s side conceded nine goals in a demolishing defeat to Belgium before allowing four to Bosnia-Herzegovina a month ago. They have easily lost each of their eight matches in the group and they have nothing to hope for in the last outing with Greece either.
Greece vs Gibraltar: Head to head
Gibraltar offered a decent resistance in the first half of their first ever meeting with Greece at the start of the qualifying campaign.
However, the visitors scored three goals within three closing minutes of the first half to ease their way to a 1-4 win at the end at Estadio Do Algarve.
Greece vs Gibraltar: Prediction
We just can’t count on a decent display from the visiting side here and we are backing Greece to win by five or more goals at the odds of 3/5 as the top betting option.
