Greece vs Moldova
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday, 11 October 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Olympic Stadium of Athens.
Engin Firat’s men are ranked 175th in the world by FIFA, whereas their counterparts for the day are amongst the top-50. This fact alone should give an accurate expectation about what is to transpire this Sunday at the Olympic Stadium of Athens.
Staying true to character, Alexandru Epureanu and his boys have placed themselves bottom-most in the table, and are still searching for their first win in the campaign.
On the other hand, the Sky Blue-Whites are the toppers of the group, and have so far maintained an unbeaten record. Moreover, John Van’t Schip’s men are slowly nearing their objective of securing a promotion to League B, and it’s doubtful they will let their guard now.
Furthermore, the Sky Blue-Whites are also at home, and have a 100% winning record here in h2h clashes over the years.
By the looks of things, we are about to witness a Greece win this weekend, and that too in style.
