    Northern Ireland set to hold Greece in the Nations League
    27/09/22 2335

    On Tuesday night, Northern Ireland will be looking to avoid relegation to the fourth tier of the Nations League as they travel to Group C2 leaders Greece in their last group game.


    The home side has already sealed top spot in the group and promotion to the second tier of the Nations League. Gus Poyet’s team has won four of their five games in the group. A 1-0 defeat in Cyprus last time out ended a run of four straight wins for Greece in Group C2.

    The defeat also ended a run of eight straight sheets dating back to the last campaign in the Nations League. The match in Cyprus followed a familiar low-scoring trend for Greece in the competition, as eight of their last nine games have produced under 2.5 goals.

    Greece has a respectable home record in the Nations League, winning five of their eight matches on home soil while losing just once. They have also kept seven clean sheets in eight games on home soil in the Nations League.

    The visitors made a slow start to their campaign in Group C2 and have collected just five points from their five group games. However, they are level on points with bottom place Cyprus, only out of the one relegation spot courtesy of superior goal difference.

    Northern Ireland has struggled to win on their travels in the Nations League, failing to win any of their last seven games in the competition away from home while suffering five defeats in the run.

    Their away games in the Nations League have been low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in five of their seven games on the road.
