Spain go into their World Cup qualifier against Greece on Thursday knowing that three points is vital if they are to top Group B.

They currently trail leaders Sweden by two points but as La Furia Roja are facing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and co on Sunday, progression remains in their hands.

Spain did well in the UEFA Nations League Finals last month, ending Italy’s monster unbeaten streak and pushing France all the way in the final. They will be confident of using that momentum to overcome Greece.

Here is everything you need to know about one of the standout matches of the international break…

When is kick off? Thursday 11 November, 19:45 (GMT)
Where is the match being played? Olympic Stadium, Athens
TV channel/live stream? Sky (UK), ESPN+ (US)
Referee? Szymon Marciniak
VAR? Tomasz Kwiatkowski

Greece team news

Greece manager John van ‘t Schip has two suspensions to deal with ahead of this one, with Pantelis Chatzidiakos and Anastasios Bakasetas – who is captain – both missing out.

Dinos Mavropanos – still contracted at Arsenal by the way – is absent too. Star left-back Kostas Tsimikas will be involved, though.

Ferran Torres

Ferran Torres picked up a foot injury during his side’s Nations League exploits last month and remains out.

He is one of several forwards not available for this game with Ansu Fati, Gerard Moreno, Yeremi Pino and Mikel Oyarzabal – who netted in the Nations League final – also absent. Eric Garcia is missing too, though on recent form he may not have played anyway.

Greece vs Spain predicted lineups

Greece: Vlachodimos; Androutsos, Goutas, Tzavellas, Tsimikas, Giannoulis; Bouchalakis, Siopis; Mantalos; Pavlidis, Masouras

Spain: Simon; Carvajal, P. Torres, Laporte, Alba; Koke, Busquets, Gavi; Sarabia, Morata, Olmo

These two sides have met 11 times previously with Greece tasting victory just once. That came back in 2003 in qualification for Euro 2004, which they would famously go on to win.

The pair faced off at that tournament too, playing out a feisty 1-1 draw in the group stages.

For the most part though, Spain have dominated, winning seven of the previous 11 matches in total. Saying that, the pair did draw back in March 2021 in the reverse fixture.

Greece vs Spain prediction

Spain will have learned their lesson from their last game against Greece when some poor finishing and a defensive lapse saw them drop two points.

This time around the stakes are high and we expect La Furia Roja to build on their impressive showing in the Nations League Finals and get the job done here.

Even with their lengthy injury list, Spain have more than enough attacking talent to cause Greece serious problems and the visitors will eventually break down the Greek defence’s typically-stubborn resistance.

Prediction: Greece 0-2 Spain
