Greece have a good chance to continue their recent good run of form when they face Malta in an international friendly. The Thursday night clash could very well turn out to be a one-sided affair since Greece are the heavy favourites on paper. However, the game is not played on paper and crazy things have happened in the past in friendlies. For both sides, only two friendlies are left to be played in this calendar year. Hence, they would be eager to end it on a high, thereby making this match an intriguing affair.

A lot of rotation could also be done with both squads in the remaining two friendlies this month, thus it will be difficult to predict how strong a starting lineup both sets of managers will name for this clash. Greece had a memorable Nations League campaign after finishing at the top of League C Group 2 with 15 points from six games. They won five times and lost just once in the tournament. On the other hand, Malta finished second in League D Group 2 with six points from four matches.
