The Galanolefki were beaten by Turkey in a friendly last week, but they are definitely capable of making life difficult for Italy, who failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup finals. Greece recorded a routine 2-0 win over Liechtenstein in their opener, with the team coming from two goals behind to share the spoils with Bosnia and Herzegovina in Zenica. All eyes will be on Olympiako Stadio Spyros Louis when Greece and Italy face each other in the Euro 2020 qualifier.

Match Schedule

A close encounter is on the cards at Olympiako Stadio Spyros Louis and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. The Azzurri did well to beat Finland and Liechtenstein in front of home fans at the start of their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Saturdays showdown against Greece.

Don't expect a ton of quality, as it will come down to set pieces or maybe just a singular moment of magic. As a result, this might not be the most captivating match you've ever seen. Should that magic occur, you have to like Italy's chances. Both of these teams, if they are going to be successful are going to have to rely on strong defences. Expert Verdict: It's been a long, long time since these two sides faced off, but not much has changed.

Up front, the danger man will most likely have to be Kostas Fortounis. They also are very tough to stop in the opposition box as well. The Olympiacos man will have to step up and attempt to add to the six goals he has scored in 42 outings since they are without Mitroglu. Hes a real rock at the back, and when hes on song with Sokratis, it can be hard to get anything by them. The pride and joy of the Greeks is their defence, and at the heart of it is Roma man Kostas Manolas.

Greece were third in their UEFA Nations League group, following mixed results. They arent likely to earn a Euro 2020 place based on their results in that campaign, so qualifying automatically is their only hope. Right now the Greeks have to aim for second, with the belief that Italy are going to secure top spot after their strong start. However, the likes of Bosnia, Finland and Armenia will be rivalling them for second place.

In their last year, they have four wins, four losses, and a draw. They didnt play as well as they could have in the Nations League, and it meant they finished third behind Finland and Hungary in League C, Group 2. They have not won (or lost) two matches in a row over that time. At home, they have two wins and a loss in that span. The loss coming to Estonia inexplicably. But they have started qualifying fairly well so far and got a useful point on the road to Bosnia that might help tremendously. Greece have to be one of the most frustrating nations in the world of football. They can be downright brilliant or just awful, and that often makes them unpredictable, at best, to get a read on.

With four World Cup titles and one European Championship trophy, Italy remain one of worlds most successful teams and they have also finished as runners up at major tournaments on four occasions. The Azzurri have become famous for their result oriented football over the years which is perfectly suited for World Cup and Euro finals, so it is now a surprise when they fail to reach the final stages.

The Greeks lost the last three matches they played in all competitions. Furthermore, that win came against one of the weakest teams in Europe, and certainly the weakest national team in their group, Liechtenstein. Moreover, they won only one out of the last six games they played. The visiting team is in the disappointing form at the moment, with only 4 points on the fourth place Greece were the second favorites in this group before the competition started, but they are now on a brink of elimination, especially after losing 3:2 against outsiders Armenia at home. Now, they will have to win the upcoming match, which is easier said than done. By looking at their recent form and matches, I suggest you backing the hosts to win the upcoming game.
