Cyprus vs Greece Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
One of the most exciting games of Group H takes place at Neo GSP Stadium in Nicosia, where the national squad of Cyprus welcomes Greece. The two sides are separated by three points with the visitors having considerable chances for reaching World Cup, while Cyprus need a miracle.
Cyprus are sitting in the fourth position in Group H with 10 points earned. Their form in the last five games stands at three victories and a draw and defeat apiece. In the last match they were bested by Estonia 1-0 which was a significant blow for them and their opportunity to play at World Cup. The hosts were only beaten by Belgium on the home turf – aside from the sole defeat, they beat Bosnia and Gibraltar while drawing Estonia. Despite Cyprus is a small country and were one of the underdogs in the group, they were playing quite well and if they snatched more points from the matches with Estonia, they could have been in a surprisingly well position to reach Russia.
Greece are in front of Cyprus in the third spot with 13 pts accumulated. They are rallying behind Bosnia & Herzegovina who have one point more and they will aim to overtake the 2nd position. Since the first position in their group is already reserved for Belgium who have already qualified for World Cup, three nations will fight for the second spot and the potential spot in the playoffs – Greece, Bosnia & Herzegovina, and Cyprus. The latter’s chances are quite low, while Greece and Bosnia both have similar chances for reaching the most prestigious international tournament.
Greece triumphed over Cyprus in the first outing between the two back in the 2016. Mitroglu and Mantalos both netted one apiece in the first half to secure the victory for their national team. Read our betting preview and make right decision on Saturday night.
