Football Bet of the Day: Greeks to suffer another tragedy

Greek football fans
Travelling Greece fans haven't had a lot to cheer lately

We're sticking with the EURO 2020 qualifiers, and Kev thinks that Armenia can win a battle of the strugglers against Greece.

"Armenia beat Greece 3-2 in Athens, and Greece's only away win in the qualifiers so far was in Liechtenstein."

Armenia can frustrate visitors again

We chose Turkey well before Christmas, and it was the wrong option. Iceland failed to keep alive their hopes of a top-two finish in the EURO 2020 qualifiers as they played out a 0-0 draw in Turkey last night, and the hosts qualified despite a surprisingly anaemic performance.

We'll head to Yerevan now, because Armenia are taking on Greece in a battle between two sides who have fallen well short of qualification. Armenia won 3-2 in Greece earlier in the campaign, and I think they can pick up another positive result.

Greece's EURO 2004 success, when they ground their way to an extraordinary tournament victory under veteran German coach Otto Rehhagel, seems like a lifetime ago. They qualified for the Euros in 2008 and 2012, and the World Cup in 2010 and 2014, but they haven't reached the finals of a major tournament since. In the Nations League, Greece finished third in their League C section behind Finland and Hungary, and they have only won two of their eight games in this qualifying section. Their only away win was at minnows Liechtenstein, who the Ethniki didn't even manage to beat in the reverse fixture.

Armenia aren't much better off, and they are without their star player Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but they won in Athens and also picked up an eye-catching 4-2 home victory over Bosnia-Herzegovina. They have only lost two of their last six qualifiers, and I think they can at least hold a very limited Greek team. I'll back Home and Draw in the Double Chance market at 1.758/11.
