Gibraltar v Greece – Betting Preview

Friday night’s match between Gibraltar and Greece will be an opportunity for both teams to start their Euro 2024 qualification campaign on the right foot.

The remaining teams in Group B—France, the Netherlands, and the Republic of Ireland—make up the group, so no team can afford to lose their opening game.

Gibraltar Preview

In terms of the draw, Gibraltar got the short end of the stick, leaving Julio Cesar Ribas to concentrate on moving forward and earning at least one point from eight challenging games.

In a competitive encounter, Gibraltar hasn’t won since posting a 1-0 victory in Liechtenstein in October 2020, but they did draw 1-1 with Bulgaria in June of the previous year.

Moreover, Ribas’ team finished 2022 on a strong note with victories against Andorra and Liechtenstein in back-to-back domestic international friendly in November.

Team 54 at least has some confidence going into trying to take points off their most prominent opponents, despite the fact that those victories are unlikely to affect their fortunes in this specific group.

Greece Preview

Despite not holding any of his last six management posts for longer than 31 matches, Gus Poyet has had a relatively mixed managing career overall. Yet, the former player seems to be doing things correctly with Greece.

Poyet took over at the start of 2022, and his squad finished the year with six victories and one draw. His team suffered one-goal losses away from home against Montenegro, Cyprus, and Hungary.

The absence of a major international rival in 2004 for the European champions was advantageous for them as they rebuilt under Poyet and won their UEFA Nations League group.

With the exception of the loss to Cyprus, Greece won all five of its games, including back-to-back sets against Kosovo and Northern Ireland, to secure a playoff position at the conclusion of this qualifying round.

All things considered, that will probably be necessary, but Poyet will try his hardest to finish in the top two in the group.

1×2 Betting Odds

Let’s begin analysing the 1×2 market

Gibraltar has made an impression on well-known ground on a few occasions, claiming draws or hard-pressing powerful sides in defeat. Yet under Poyet, Greece seems to have turned a new leaf, which is why we think the visitors will win handily.

Given the gap in quality between the two sides, the home side is not given much of a chance with odds standing @ 35.00!

Greece to win to highly likely as they are the heavy favourites @ 1.09.

The market odds of a stalemate stands @ 11.00.

Total goals over/under

Let’s check the over/under scenario

The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 1.44.

While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 2.85.

Given the difference in levels between the two teams, expect the away side to win this one with supreme comfort.

So expect a few goals in this!
