Kosovo vs Greece
UEFA Nations League
Date: Sunday, 6 September 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Fadil Vokrri Stadium.
John van’t Schip’s men are favorites to get promoted to League B at the end of the campaign, but for that they will have to overcome the challenge posed by Slovenia. These are the only teams in the group currently ranked in the top-100 by FIFA.
After the first match-day, all teams in C3 have one point each, and so far have failed to take advantage of being included in such an easy group.
The Ethniki will be under pressure to deliver this Sunday, as rivals Slovenia are favorites to win against Moldova this weekend. Should Slovenia secure the three points, and Schip’s men under-perform, the latter will then have a mountain to climb in order to get promoted.
Considering the recent form of Ethniki, and the struggles of their counterparts, expect a Greece win this weekend.
Kosovo vs Greece: Head-to-head (h2h)
- These two teams are about to take on each other for the very first time.
Kosovo vs Greece: Prediction
The Dardanians had been pitted against Moldova in their opener, and were on the road. The hosts opened scoring in the 20th minute itself, and threatened to post the three points on the board. But Bernard Challendes’ men held on, and slotted in the equalizer in the 71st minute.
Meanwhile, Schip’s men travelled to Slovenia for their opener, and had to settle for a goalless draw.
In regards to the result of this upcoming encounter – consider the form of the Dardanians. They are winless in their past four match-ups, and had lost three of these in a row. They had also failed to score in two of their former three fixtures, and conceded two or more goals in two of the last four games.
Also keep note that they had lost their last appearance at home by a four-goal margin. On the other hand, their counterparts are on a four-fixture unbeaten run, and they had won three of these match-ups. Also note that they have conceded a total of just one goal from their past three fixtures.
Moreover, Challandes’ men are placed 115th in FIFA Ranking, while their opposite number are 54th. Also note that the Ethniki have a rich history in competitions conducted by UEFA, as they miraculously won the Euro Cup back in 2004.
Taking these observations into account, expect Greece to secure a win this Sunday. Moreover, since they are desperate for the three points, count on them to dominate from the get-go.
