Cyprus games in recent years have frequently had a zero in the score. Up to five of their previous six meetings, which preceded this one, would have resulted in a loss if one had bet on “Both Teams to Score.”
Greece enters this game off of a 2-0 victory over Kosovo in the Nations League. Greece had 59% of the possession in that game and made 14 attempts on goal, scoring on three of them.
Giorgos Giakoumakis (71′) and Petros Mantalos (99′) scored the goals for Greece. In contrast, Kosovo made 6 tries towards goal but just one of them was successful. In recent matches involving Greece, it has been increasingly common for at least one team to keep a clean sheet.
It has occurred six times in their last six meetings, according to our analysis. Their opponents have scored just one goal over these matches, while Greece has amassed eight. However, we now have to wait to see if that pattern will continue in this upcoming game.
Cyprus vs Greece – Betting Analysis
Nikos Kostenoglou, the manager of Cyprus, will be relieved that his team is completely injury-free and prepared for this encounter, which means he won’t have to worry about their fitness.
The Greece manager, Gustavo Poyet, has no fitness concerns whatsoever going into this match because he has a completely injury-free bunch to choose from.
According to our assessment, Cyprus can undoubtedly get past this Greece team’s defence, yet scoring just one goal is unlikely to save them from giving up a few goals down the other end. As a result, we anticipate a very close game with a final score of 1-2 in favour of Greece. See what transpires in this case.
