Nations League – Greece-Cyprus
Let’s dive once again in the best soccer bets odds. We are heading to Volos where Greece will host Cyprus in a match from League C of the Nations League.
Greece are determined to move up to League B and they started their campaign in the best way possible – with two wins. Gus Poyet’s team faced Northern Ireland and Kosovo and managed to win the same result – 1-0. Not impressive, but surely effective.
Trabzonspor’s Anastasios Bakasetas scored the winning goal for Greece during the visit to Kosovo in Pristina. He was assisted by Petros Mantalos and found the net with his 7th goal for the national team. We expect to see him starting in the next game as well.
Stuttgart’s Konstantinos Mavropanos is one of the undisputed leaders in Greece’s team. The former Arsenal centre-back is crucial for the way his team performs in the heart of the defense. Meanwhile Liverpool’s Konstantinos Tsimikas is another player who adds immense quality for the 2004 European champions.
Cyprus won just one point in their first two matches in this group. The White and Blues hosted Northern Ireland few days ago and a 0-0 draw got them a point. What’s worrying is that Cyprus didn’t score a single goal in their first two matches.
Managed by the Greek coach Nikolaos Kostenoglou, Cyprus will travel to Greece as a complete underdog. But that’s pretty good for them at the same time. Most likely they will adopt a more defensive approach to this game while they hope to hurt Greece on the counter-attack. Ludogorets’ Pieros Sotiriou is one of the players Greece have to be careful with. The 29-years old striker is a proven goalscorer.
That’s the winning soccer tips for the Nations League clash between Greece and Cyprus on Thursday. Let’s see what’s going to happen here.
