Rise in Performance
Technically, Greece still has chances to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar. The team needs 2 wins in the remaining two games but a flawless performance, however, does not guarantee that their task will be accomplished. Greece has already recorded an unexpected draw against Spain in the 1st Round of the Group Stage (1-1).
2nd Place is not an Option
Spain is competing with Sweden for 1st place in the group. Neither of both teams wishes to finish 2nd and face another tough opponent in the Play-offs for the World Cup. It is vital for Spain to take 3 points tonight. Of course, at the same time, Sweden should lose some points. We are expecting to see a solid performance by the Spanish selection today.
The team of Greece has been greatly improving during the last two years. The squad may not glitter with some world-class payers but the coach of the team is doing his job well as he managed to build a team with a distinctive style of play. On the other hand, Spain cannot afford to lose more points and will play this game as a final.
