However, Greece cannot be taken lightly. Their performance in the Nations League should not be underestimated. They won five of their six games to finish at the top of League C Group 2 with 15 points. However, Greece would be disappointed at only managing a draw in their last match against Malta. Meanwhile, Hungary are also heading into this encounter on the back of being held to a draw in their last game against Luxembourg. Prior to that, Hungary were placed in a difficult group in Nations League yet they performed brilliantly to finish second in League A Group 3.
