Greece will hope to continue its good run of form under new head coach Gus Poyet when they take on Malta in a friendly. The upcoming fixture will be nothing more than a confidence-building exercise for these two sets of squads since they both have failed to book a ticket to the upcoming World Cup. While Malta never looked like securing a place in Qatar, the same cannot be said for Greece. It is the second successive World Cup Greece have failed to qualify.

However, they have seemed to have found their confidence in recent games, going on an impressive run. In the Nations League, Greece topped League C Group 2 with 15 points from six games and suffered just one loss throughout the course of the tournament. They will undoubtedly head into this clash as the heavy favourites against a Malta side that has been struggling to find any rhythm. They finished second in League D Group 2 with six points from four games.

Possible Lineups

Despite Malta’s well-known struggles, they are heading into this fixture on the back of beating Israel 2-1 in September. Hence, they could very well go with more-or-less the same squad that helped them in that victory. On the other hand, Greece have left out some noticeable names such as Stuttgart defender Dinos Mavropanos, Liverpool full-back Kostas Tsimikas and Benfica goalkeeper Odysseas Vlachodimos. There are only two friendlies left to be played for both sides this year, hence a lot of rotation can happen in their respective lineups.

Malta possible line-up: Bonello, Pepe, J. Borg, S. Borg, J. Mbong, Kristensen, Guillaumier, Camenzuli, Teuma, Degabriele, Satariano

Greece possible line-up: Barkas, Rota, Tzavellas, Chatzidiakos, Kyriakopoulos, Bakasetas, Mantalos, Kourbelis, Masouras, Pelkas, Ioannidis
