Spain vs Greece Prediction & Match Preview



25 March 2021 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET World Cup Qual

Buoyed by a historical 6-0 win over Germany, Spain will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Greece at Estadio Los Carmenes. 

La Furia Roja aim to kick off their World Cup qualifying campaign in style, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Greeks. 

Barca rising star Pedri has received his first call-up for the national team, while Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has been left out of the squad.

Athletic Club attacker Inaki Williams has been left out of the squad. Juve attacker Alvaro Morata is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts. 

Greece, on the other hand, were producing fine displays in the UEFA Nations League, with the team finishing the process in second position in the standings. 

The Greeks, though, are not regarded as good travellers, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Spain’s party in Granada.

Team News:

While one Premier League goalkeeper in Kepa Arrizabalaga has been dropped from the squad, Brighton & Hove Albion's Robert Sanchez has earned his first call-up, but he is unlikely to challenge David de Gea for the number one spot.

Sergio Ramos has suffered yet another injury but is included in the squad despite his sprain, although Inigo Martinez and Diego Llorente could start at the back if no risks are taken over the 34-year-old's fitness.

Barcelona starlet Pedri has also been included in the squad for the first time but may not be trusted from the first whistle, while Torres could once again be supporting Alvaro Morata - who boasts a goal every other game for Spain - in the attack.

While former Arsenal man Sokratis has seen his international career conclude, current Gunners defender Dinos Mavropanos has been handed his first call-up after impressing on loan at Stuttgart.

However, the more experienced Georgios Tzavellas and Kyriakos Papadopoulos may be preferred by Van 't Schip at the back, while Liverpool's Kostas Tsimikas will do battle with Norwich City loanee Dimitris Giannoulis for the left-back spot.

Kostas Fortounis is the top scorer in the squad with nine goals to his name, but his chances of hitting double figures against Spain are certainly slim, even if the inspirational Ramos does not start the match.

Spain possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Porro, Martinez, Llorente, Alba; Rodri, Thiago, Koke; Torres, Morata, Oyarzabal

Greece possible starting lineup:
Vlachodimos; Mavrias, Papadopoulos, Tzavellas, Giannoulis; Zeca, Bouchalakis; Limnios, Bakasetas, Fortounis; Pavlidis
