This is the third match in the UEFA Nations League C group 2 for both teams. Greece beat Estonia 0-1 in their opening game and Hungary lost to Finland 1-0 away from home. Hungary and Greece then met in Budabest where Hungary won 2-1.

Form and Stats:

Greece has not been in that good form recently as they have won only two of their last five games. Both were 0-1 wins over Egypt and Estonia. If you go back to their last 15 games, they have only 4 wins (Cyprus and Gibraltar), 5 draws and 6 losses. Ten of those 15 games have ended with under 2.5 goals. At home Greece has won only three of their last 10 matches (Montenegro, Cyprus and Gibraltar), drawn three and lost four (Switzerland, Belgium, Belarus and Iceland). All their losses have come by 1 goal difference.

Hungary does not have that much better form either. The win over Greece in the last game was their first one in six game (1-1-4). In their last ten games they are 3-1-6 with wins over the Faroe Islands and Costa Rica and losses to for instance Luxembourg, Kazakhstan, Scotland and Australia. Five of those ten games have been over 2.5 goals. Hungary has a very bad away record as they have lost five out of their last six away games and drawing only with Belarus. This includes losses to Androrra, Luxembourg and most recently Finland. Their last away win was two years ago against Latvia in the World Cup qualifiers.

Team News:

Greece will be without their captain Vasilis Torosidis, AEK defender Marios Oikonomou, Cagliari defender Babis Lykogiannis and VfB Stuttgart forward Tasos Donis who are all injured. All of these players played in their last game against Hungary. Most likely line-up is GK : Barkas , DR : Bakakis , DC: Papastathopoulos , DC: Manolas , DL :Tsimikas . MC: ZECA , MC: Kourmbelis , MC: Fortounis , FC : Mitroglou , AMC : Pelkas, AMC : Bakasetas

Out of the team that played against Greece in the last match, Hungary are missing Zoltan Stieber and Daniel Salloi. Both players remained on the bench though.
