Greece out for revenge on Finland in UEFA Nations League

Glen Kamara Greece Finland Betting Odds UEFA Nations League

Greece currently sits second in UEFA Nations League Group C2 and on Thursday evening hosts a Finland side that is riding high in the new continental competition. Finland is the runaway leader with a 100 per cent record after four group outings, and Greece is the only side capable of catching them. For that to happen, however, three points is an absolute imperative on Thursday night.

  • Finland has won the last two meetings between these two teams.
  • Greece has a 100 percent home record in the UEFA Nations League.
  • Finland has yet to concede a goal in the UEFA Nations League.

Greeks seek revenge in key clash

Finland won the corresponding fixture 2-0 last month thanks to a pair of strikes after the interval. Greece, which has two wins and two defeats from its four outings thus far, must maintain its 100 per cent home record if it is to stand any chance of catching Finland at the top of the group.

Anything less than a win for Greece, and Finland will be declared winners of Group C2. They have played just one match on the road so far, however, a 1-0 win away to Estonia, and Greece is a far stronger side – on paper, at least.

And it is indeed Greece that comes into this match as the favorite to pick up a win in front of its own fans. You can back Greece to take all three points at +110, with Finland out at +333 to maintain its 100 per cent record in the UEFA Nations League. A draw is priced in the middle at +210, but with Greece needing a victory, we are expecting a result one way or the other.

Greece to edge a close contest

These two sides look evenly matched from a technical standpoint, but the desperation of the home side and their need for points, not to mention home advantage, gives them a definite edge coming into this key clash. And while it is never easy trying to predict the exact scoreline of a match, a narrow 2-1 win for the Greeks is priced competitively at +850 and looks worth backing.

That in turn would allow you to back OVER 2.5 goals in the game, which comes in at +175, and both teams to score, which is priced slightly shorter at +125. However, if you are thinking of a way of trying to boost any potential earnings, then it is worth considering combo betting, where you can select various outcomes from the game at higher odds.

For example, a Greece win combined with both teams to score is at the much higher price of +450, while a home win coupled with OVER 2.5 goals in the game is at +300. You may also bet on the total number of goals in the match, with UNDER two priced at +137, two or three seeing that price drop down to +100 and OVER three goals rising sharply to +450.

Greece must make advantage count

And with this game so crucial for the home side, they must simply try to make every advantage count. In front of their own fans they will try to seize the initiative from the very first whistle, and you can back OVER 0.5 goals in the first 10 minutes at +450, with Greece priced at +800 to be ahead by the end of that time period.

A strong backline will also help the home side on their way, and you can back Greece to win to nil (without Finland scoring a goal) at +175. This is likely to be a tense affair won late on, and we expect Greece to score in the second half – an outcome you can back at just -125, while they are at +300 to score in both halves.

But who could get the goals? AEK forward Anastasios Bakasetas may well be their best bet, with the 25-year-old striker priced at +260 to score at any time during the game, while you can back him at +550 to net either the first or the last goal of the match.
