In a game from Group J of the European qualifiers, Greece hosts Finland at the Olympiako Stadio Spyros Louis in the capital Athens. This is a fine opportunity for us to take a look at this match in our soccer matches tomorrow. Are you ready to go?
For Greece this is a crucial game to keep the third place in the group. The Ethniki are currently third in the standings with 11 points, but just one point ahead of Armenia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. This means that the European champions from 2004 must beat Finland in order to be absolutely sure that they are going to finish third in the group.
Right now Greece are enjoying a run of two consecutive wins in the group. After their home win against Bosnia-Herzegovina in October, Johannes van’t Schip’s boys managed to beat Armenia in Yerevan as well. PAOK’s Dimitris Limnios was the player who scored the crucial goal which allowed the Greek team to go up to third place in the standings.
For Finland on the other hand this is a match with no meaning. The Scandinavians already celebrated their qualification for the Euro 2020. On Friday Finland beat Liechtensten with 3-0 at home, which means that they are officially part of the next European championship. Jasse Tuominen opened the score for the Finnish team, while Teemu Pukki finished the job with two goals after the halftime break.
For Finland this is going to be a historical first apperance at a big tournament. Never so far this team have qualified for an European championship or a World Cup. Everyone in Finland is celebrating right now.
That’s our soccer matches tomorrow prediction for the game between Greece and Finland. The visitors already did their job, so they can save some energy, but for the Greek side this game is really important. They will have the bigger motivation here.
