Kosovo Preview – Playing in Pristina a big factor?

Taking on a Moldova team currently at its lowest ranking of 175 and which had lost its past seven matches really should have been a case of Kosovo, ranked one shy of their highest mark of 114, gently easing themselves into a Nations League group decidedly more taxing than the one previous. But if there was a marked difference between the two nations in the latest rankings, it ultimately failed to show on the scoreline.

Despite seeing more than two-third of the ball inside Stadio Ennio Tardini on Thursday – using this possession to pepper the hosts’ goal with just shy of 20 goal attempts, five of which found its target according to UEFA’s official website – all that Bernard Challandes and his team had to show for was a well-worked goal finished off by midfielder Benjamin Kololli. A goal which turned a shock loss into a frustrating 1-1 draw.

It only gets tougher from here on out, beginning with Greece, the highest ranked team in their section. Fortunately Kosovo retain a strong record in Pristina, losing only one of the last seven competitive home games (W5 D1 L1). That sole defeat coming in their final Euro 2020 qualifier against England when closing out a promising campaign, in which they almost pipped the Czech Republic into second, by losing 4-0.


Draw & Both To Score



Greece Preview – Thursday’s stalemate unlikely to be repeated?

Surprisingly, Greece recorded their first goalless stalemate for nearly three years, which is fairly remarkable for a team synonymous with dour, low-scoring affairs. In fact, Thursday’s uninspiring encounter in Slovenia was their fifth match in seven to produce no more than two goals. More significantly, however, it signalled the end of their longest winning streak since 2016.

Canadian coach John van’t Schip had guided the Greeks to three consecutive victories over Bosnia (2-1), Armenia (0-1) and Finland (2-1) prior to opening their Nations League account in Group C3 with a disappointing draw. Disappointing because it was they who dictated much of the action as well as carving out enough chances to merit all three points, thwarted each time by an imperious Jan Oblak in the Slovenian goal.

A similar performance in Pristina would surely see them go close to quickly rediscovering the winning trail. The Greeks boast an abundance of experience, with their squad comprising of individuals who ply their trade in some of Europe’s top leagues, and appear to have overcome their issues from a hugely underwhelming qualifying campaign for the 2020 European Championships.

Kosovo Vs Greece Betting Advice

With the difference between the two in terms of ranking hardly insignificant, it is up to Greece to make this apparent superiority count. Home advantage could count for even more, though: Kosovo have lost only once at home in seven competitive games (W5 D1 L1), although only the Czech Republic are ranked higher right now than Greece who, since the start of 2018, are three from nine in competitive away games (W3 D2 L4).


Kosovo Vs Greece – Key Facts

  • A 4-0 defeat to England in November 2019, during their final qualifier for Euro 2020, remains the sole home defeat in seven competitive matches (W5 D1 L1) for Kosovo.
  • Last Thursday’s 0-0 draw in Slovenia halted a three-game winning run for Greece, this coming on the back of no win in six competitive games (D2 L4).
  • There has never been a previous encounter between Kosovo (FIFA Ranking of 115) and Greece (54).


Predicting a potential winner clearly isn’t straightforward, even if Greece boast a wealth of experience as well as some improved recent form. Instead, look to the goals market. As while Greece aren’t famed for their thrilling, end-to-end brand of football, containing Kosovo won’t be simple. The hosts have scored in six of their last seven competitive home games, not to mention doing so twice during a 2-2 draw with Denmark last year. 1-1 Draw.
