Greece vs Kazakhstan

A place in the EURO 2024 playoffs final will be at stake when Greece and Kazakhstan go head to head at OPAP Arena in what is expected to be an interesting encounter. The Greeks are seen as favourites to win Thursday’s clash, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. In-form attacker Fotis Ioannidis is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts after scoring a brace for Panathinaikos in a 3-1 win over their bitter rivals Olympiacos, while West Ham defender Konstantinos Mavropanos should be the key man at the back.

The Kazakhs, on the other hand, recorded six wins in the EURO 2024 qualifiers, but eventually failed to secure automatic qualification for the showpiece tournament in Germany. Magomed Adiev’s men are not regarded as good travellers and that is probably the main reason why we are going to place our bets on Greece this time out.
