Spain vs Greece Prediction and Odds: Recent Form

Spain lost one and won two in their last three matches. They had to concede a defeat at the hands of group toppers Sweden but went on to register comfortable victories over Georgia and Kosovo.

Sweden too has two wins and one defeat in their last three matches. They managed to get the better of Sweden in the home game but in the reverse fixture, the Swedish came away with all the points. They defeated Georgia in between them.

Barcelona forward Ansu Fati has pulled himself out of the Spanish squad after suffering what appeared to be a hamstring injury. Fati only returned recently after a long spell on the sidelines and it seems his injury woes decided not to leave him immediately. Espanyol forward Raul de Tomas has replaced him in the squad.

Defender Eric Garcia too was subbed off early after injury and it remains to be seen whether he can make it or not.

Both the teams met in March this year where they played out a 1-1 draw.

Spain recently knocked out Italy in the UEFA Nations League semifinal by ending their unbeaten streak. They went on to lose the final to France but their recent form has been very satisfactory.

Enrique has recalled Dani Carvajal who became the first Real Madrid player to get a call up to the national team since the manager took charge.

Enrique said, “I’ll be honest, I feel the pressure.

Bigger than in the UEFA Nations League final stage. We’ll be playing to be in a World Cup. Our group of players is young but they are also experienced and mature, with enough international baggage to handle this kind of responsibility.”

Enrique has started to stabilise things by putting his philosophy in the minds of the players. He loves Barcelona and his passing style of playing and his selection speaks volumes about that.

He is also pinning his hopes on the future generation as young players with the likes of Pedri, Ansu Fati and Gavi coming as big.

They press high and always attack the ball. Enrique has been playing without a proper number nine and the gamble has paid off so far as the likes of Dani Olmo, Ferran Torres and Mikel Oyarzabal have created many chances.

Unai Simon has been preferred over the brilliant David De Gea so far since the recently concluded Euros and he has been good so far except for some glitches in the Euros.

In the midfield, both Rodri and Busquets have made a name for themselves and they have the reputation to pass the ball with acute perfection on the pitch.

Aymeric Laporte has been rock solid since taking up Spanish citizenship and he is likely to marshal the backline against the Greeks.

Greece will field a five man defence in a bid to thwart the Spanish attacks. The roles of Tsimikas and Giannoulois in maintaining the shape of the backline would be very important.
