This Sunday the qualifications for EURO 2016 begin and one of the most interesting matches promises to be Greece vs Romania. While Greece have scored more goals than Romania in their head to head matches, what the results show is that the wins are evenly divided between the two. Considering the fact that Greece have the World Cup experience behind the back it’s no wonder why William Hill backs them to win at 2.00.
The hosts have a few adjustments to settle in, as Fernando Santos has resigned from the manager position, after earning a good reputation with the supporters and increasing Greece’s winning percentage. Claudio Ranieri took over the Euro 2004 champions and his main mission is to qualify his team to the tournament from the first place. The following European tournaments saw Greece stopping in the quarterfinals, and in Brazil they bowed down in the last 16. Their main card is their defense, but they have become rather dangerous on counter attacks.
Romania come into the match against Greece with a personal vendetta after the defeat from the World Cup qualifying campaign with a team that needs to be rebuilt should they reach anywhere near the EURO 2000 result they had. Victor Piturca has some injury worries, as during Tuesday’s training Dorin Goian took a knock and might miss the match against Greece. To soften the blow he has called Bogdan Mitrea in case Goian tests show something more serious. The visitors have missed the European tournament that Spain won in 2012 and their presence on the European stage has been rather scarce, as they follow their tendency to start well the qualification, but then fizzle right before the finish line.
