Match Preview

Finland (W3, L1), who have never reached a major finals, are targeting a fourth consecutive European Championship qualification match (ECQ) win for the first time since 1994/95. Encouragingly for them, they are unbeaten in seven prior home fixtures with Greece (W4, D3), while losing just once in their last ten home fixtures overall (W7, D2, L1).
Seven of Finland’s last ten home games have also seen them pick up a clean sheet,, which has also been the case in six of their last ten (home/away). Indeed, the hosts have lost just once in their last eight ECQs (W5, D2, L1) and are unbeaten in three home ECQs (W2, D1), further boosting hopes of another positive result.
In contrast, Greece have won just two of their last 14 ECQs (W2, D4, L8). Six matches during this run has seen Greece fail to score, but notably, 11 of their last 15 matches have seen at least one team keep a clean sheet.
Despite their current situation, Greece have been decent travellers for ECQs in recent years, losing just twice in ECQs on foreign soil since the start of 2003 (W12, D7, L2). Continuing the clean sheet theme, 13 of the 21 matches during this run have witnessed at least one team attain a shutout.
Players to watch: Teemu Pukki (FIN) has five goals in four club matches and three international goals in his last two matches.
Greece’s Vasilis Torosidis is the most experienced player in the national side (100 caps) and the top scorer (ten goals) amongst his peers.
Stat attack: Finland’s last four ECQs have all ended with a 2-0 scoreline.
There have been under 1.5 match goals at half-time in nine of Finland’s last ten matches.
Greece have never managed to score more than once in their seven away H2Hs.
