Analysis and forecast of the match on the tenth qualifying day for Euro 2024 Greece – France (11/21/2023)
Club football took a break, giving way to the qualifying matches for the European Championship in Germany. On November 21, seven matches will be played on the tenth day of the qualifying tournament. In one of them, the Greek team will host France at the OPAP Arena in Athens. The kick-off is scheduled for 22:45 Moscow time.
In seven qualifying matches for Euro 2024, the Greek team lost to France (0-1) and the Netherlands (0-3 and 0-1). They defeated Gibraltar (3-0 and 5-0) and Ireland (2-1 and 2-0). The “Pirate Ship” occupies third place in the ranking. The difference with the Dutch team, which occupies second place, is three points.
The Greeks missed the chance to get directly to the final round, but they have a chance to enter the tournament through the cuts. The fact is that Gustavo Poyet’s team won Group C of the Nations League. In six games they only lost to Cyprus (0-1). We won all the other games.
The main asset of the “pirate ship” is a very well-coordinated defensive game. Only in 2 of the last 21 games in all official tournaments did he lose more than one goal: in the meetings with Sweden (0-2) and Holland (0-3). Furthermore, in both cases the Greeks acted on the road.
West Ham and Liverpool defenders Konstantinos Mavropanos and Konstantinos Tsimikas, as well as Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Odysseas Vlachodimos, deserve special praise. In clubs they rarely get playing time, but in the national team they are permanent leaders.
In the next match, the Greek defense will face a serious test of strength. France became one of the first teams to guarantee access to Euro 2024. In the initial six rounds of qualifying they achieved confident victories and thus won the group ahead of schedule.
This was not enough for Didier Deschamps’ team. Then they beat Gibraltar 14:0. The “Tricolors” established three unique achievements at once: a record for qualifying for the Euro Cup for the number of goals in one match, the largest victory in the history of the national team, as well as a victory with the largest point difference in the history of classification. for the tournament.
France became the first European team since 1967 to score 14 goals in a match. The main hero of the match was its captain Kylian Mbappé. He scored a hat-trick and had three assists. The striker broke the records of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi by scoring 300 goals before turning 25.
In addition, Mbappé rose to third place on the list of the team’s top scorers. In 74 matches with the national team, he scored 46 goals. Curiously, shortly before the game against Gibraltar, Kylian was criticized by PSG coach Luis Enrique. After the overwhelming victory in the last round of Ligue 1 against Reims (3-0), he publicly expressed his dissatisfaction with the footballer. This despite Kylian scoring a hat-trick.
However, Mbappé took the criticism correctly. This only gave the striker additional motivation. Didier Deschamps made fun of Luis Enrique after the game with Gibraltar. He said with a smile that he expected more from the forward, thus parodying the PSG coach.
The game against Gibraltar was also significant for 17-year-old Blues midfielder Warren Zaire-Emery. Having scored in the 16th minute of the match, he became the youngest scorer for the French national team in 109 years.
You can bet that the “tricolors” will beat Greece and the total is less than 3.5 in bookmakers with odds of 2.35. In seven qualifying matches for Euro 2024, Deschamps’ men only conceded one goal. With a high degree of probability they will win cleanly this time as well.
Prediction and bets for the Euro 2024 qualifying match Greece – France November 21, 2023
The Greek team has much fewer resources and worse results. However, at home this is capable of causing problems even for France. Often the “pirate ship” demonstrates a very disciplined defensive game. Despite the difference in category, in the first match the “tricolors” beat them by a minimal margin. Most likely, the next meeting will end similarly.
Tender: France wins and the total is less than 3.5 goals for an odds of 2.35.
