Greece is welcoming Belgium to a World Class H qualification of the Europe Zone. The match is tonight at 21:45 at the Karakakis stadium in Piraeus.
Greece's 2018 straight-run qualifiers have failed on Thursday when they made a zero draw against Estonia at home. Thus Belgium increased its lead on top of the top six points after winning 9-0 against Gibraltar.
The Greeks have 13 points in their assets in the second position with two more than the third Bosnia and Herzegovina, which will surely record three points in this round during their visit to Gibraltar. In that case, Greece is very likely to lose its second position, but their next two matches are Cyprus and Gibraltar, while Bosnia has a clash with Belgium.
Greece scored the fourth consecutive draw in the world qualifiers against Estonia on Thursday. They are unbeaten in the group with three successes and four draws, but such draws as against Estonia prevent them from having a better chance of winning the World Cup 2018. Our southern neighbors have no defeat at home in 13 consecutive world qualifiers and will striving for their good series of own terrain to continue against the strong team of Belgium. They made 1: 1 in Brussels in March this year, being even minutes away from victory, but Rommel Lukauu brought the "red devil" point at the end of the match.
Namely Lukaku will be the biggest threat to Greece on Sunday night. The striker enjoyed an excellent start of the season in his new Manchester United team, and on Thursday scored three goals in success over Gibraltar. Belgium also has no defeat in these qualifiers as it has six wins and one draw. The guests are in a much better shape and expect to win in Piraeus and secure the World Cup 2018.
