Finland vs Greece Preview
Greece was credited with the first chance to win Group F, but the truth is that they are one of the most overestimated squads at this Euro 2016 Qualification stage. Not surprisingly, the Greeks have lost the opening game and they are now trying to become the points on the road. Finland is the team blocking their way and the hosts have good reasons to be confident ahead of this fixture, following their back-to-back victories.

Finland vs Greece Tips
Greece didn't play any friendly games over the last two months, mostly because their players got involved in the World Cup 2014. They were on the verge of achieving a remarkable performance in Brazil, but were stopped in their tracks by Costa Rica.
In order to qualify for the European championship two years from now, the Greeks will need to fear the more offensive starting formation. It is obvious that defending with five players and hoping that one of their strikers will score on the counterattack is not delivering expected results. Home pitch advantage didn't help either and unless something changes quickly, it might be too late for Greece.
On the opposite hand, we have a team that has been struggling to win games at home, but performed much better on the road. Both recent victories for Finland were earned away from home, in Estonia and Faeroe Islands, with the Scandinavian team scoring five goals and allowing just one.
This kind of precise defense should come in handy against Greece, given the fact that their opponents rarely concede goals but they have a reliable backline. For Finland to remain at the top of Group F they need to avoid defeat in this fixture, because Greece and Romania will be the main counter candidates.
- Finland scored nine goals over the last four games, while Greece only managed to find its way to the net four times over the span.
- The head to head record favors Finland, with the hosts winning three times and drawing twice while the Greeks are yet to win on the road.
Finland vs Greece Prediction
Past performance can be used as a reliable indicator of what might happen next and with Greece seeking its first victory in Finland, it is worth backing the hosts. To mitigate the risks, punters are advised to take the Finland Draw no Bet, which enjoys odds above even value at Unibet.
