Europe: World Cup - Qualification
Match start: 20:45 (GMT+1)
One of the most interesting matches that will be held on Saturday is the qualifier of the national team of Belgium at their home arena “Roi Baudouin” against the national team of Greece.
The history of the battle of these two national teams consists of 7 matches in which the current leader of the 8th European group H has gained only two winnings while the Champions of the EURRO-2014 counts 3 winnings over the Belgians. But as we know, the statistics of the football meetings unlike tennis is not crucial but has only indirect meaning.
The national team of Belgium
Here and now the most important is the present physical condition of the opponents and also their progress during the last 4 rounds:
Belgium– 12, Greece – 10, Bosnia – 7, Cyprus – 3, Estonia – 3, Gibraltar – 0;
Let us remember that after the French EURO-2016 there had occurred the change of the coach. And instead of dismissed Marc Wilmots the new coach of the reds now is the former chief coach of the English clubs Wigan and Everton - Spanish specialist Roberto Martínez.
All is clear about the reasons of this variant. As practically all the stars of the national team of Belgium – except the attacking halfback Radja Nainggolan and Axel Witsel, who has moved to China – are playing in EPL.
The national team of Greece
During the last 4 matches under the new coach Don Martinez the reds have gained 4 winnings in a row over the national teams of Cyprus, Bosnia, Gibraltar and Estonia with the total score 21:1. Now to Brussel came the main opponent of the royal team.
Let us remember that the last EURO in France the national team of Greece has missed due to the faults of “the great and the only one” Claudio Ranieri. Now the blue and whites are headed by one of the most experienced German specialist Michael Skibbe (Borussia D, Bayer, Eintracht). And thanks to this new coach the team very quickly became the bright favorite instead of obvious underdog.
The Champions of the EURO-2014 had managed to overplay the teams of Gibraltar (4:1), Cyprus (2:0) and Estonia (2:0) during the last 4 matches and shared the points at home match with the Bosnians (1:1).
And now the team of specialist Michael Skibbe came to Brussel and is ready to fight with the leader of the group. In its interview the best goalscorer of the guests Konstantinos Mitroglou has declared that the absence of the leader of the hosts Eden Hazard (Chelsea) really evens chances of the rivals on outcome success. And what do the bookmakers think about this?
