Competition: World Cup qualifying
Market: Under 2.5 goals
Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport
Two nations who turn their attention back to the final stages of World Cup qualifying, Greece will host Spain on Thursday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Greece might still mathematically stand a chance of booking a spot at next year’s World Cup finals, they are a nation seeking a real miracle. In their six qualifying matchups this year, they have recorded a pair of wins, three draws and just a single defeat, scoring seven and conceding six in return. Managing to muster a points tally of nine from a possible 18, they open the midweek fixtures sat third in Group B and four points adrift of finding a route into the top-two. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 2-0 loss away at Sweden, that was Greece’s first defeat from any of their previous four outings. Likewise, it should also be noted, the one-time European champions have seen three of their last four fixtures finish with under 2.5 goals.
As for the visitors, while Spain might still find themselves sat in pole position to secure a spot at next year’s World Cup finals, they are seeking an immediate return to winning ways. In their six Group B matchups so far this year, they have recorded four wins, one draw and one defeat, scoring 13 and conceding five in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 13, the Reds open the midweek fixtures sat second in the table and holding a four-point buffer over Thursday’s hosts. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a defeat at the hands of France on Nations League duties, that brought an end to Spain’s three-match winning run across all formats. It should be noted, with four of the previous six meetings between the two opponents finishing with under 2.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
