The UEFA Nations League Group 2C sees group leaders Greece travel to Larnaca to take on Cyprus at the AEK Arena for the second to last fixture of the group stages. The visitors have already wrapped up the group and will be promoted to League B for the next edition of the Nations League after winning all four of their matches so far. Greece leads second-place Kosovo by six points and hold the head-to-head tiebreaker after a 1-0 away win was followed up by a 2-0 home win in their most recent outing. They’ll try to maintain their perfect winning record when they take on fourth-place Cyprus, who will be battling to avoid relegation to League D. The Cypriots have a 0-2-2 record in the competition, which puts them even on points with third-place Northern Ireland but trail on goal differential after scoring two and conceding seven in total.
Greece have clearly shown that they are a step above this level of competition and are certainly more in line with the talent level in League B. The Sky Blue and Whites have yet to concede in this tournament, keeping four consecutive clean sheets on their way to a 4-0-0 record. As per the DNA of the Greek national team, they haven’t been blowing teams away on the offensive side of the ball and their seven total goals is tied for the third-highest total in League C. They will certainly fancy their chances of making it five clean sheets from five when they take on a Cyprus side that they beat 3-0 at home in the reverse fixture. Cyprus has struggled to find the net in this competition, only netting two goals and being held scoreless in three of their four matches. However, the home defense has at least seen an improvement as Cyprus has only conceded two goals on home soil compared to five away from home.
