I'd say it's good. Sokratis' teammate Kolašinac had a minor injury so he missed Armenia game, but he should be ready tomorrow. Apart from that no other injury problems. All in all, our team is weaker than 2014. when we played World cup having only two class players now Džeko and Pjanić, but we will see what future brings. I know Greece also have some injured players, but that doesn't have to mean anything.

Hello. It has been a while since I last wrote here, who knew we would be in this situation again so soon?

Bosnia has undergone a transformation under new manager Robert Prosinečki who can certainly put up some impressive numbers to his name so far. Since Robert Prosinečki took over, Bosnia have only conceded 4 goals in the last 10 games, one of those being a 93rd minute deflection against Northern Ireland. The current team is much more organized, disciplined and defensively compact than the one Greece played in the last qualification campaign - the fact Bosnia has been promoted to Divison A of the UEFA Nations League is proof of this. However, Bosnia has lost its offensive touch and finds it harder to come to goals and chances than would have previously been the case. For example, the team only managed one shot on target in the game against Austria at home and that was the shot that resulted in the only goal of the game, giving Bosnia a 1-0 victory.

I expect a hard match tomorrow, it could go either way.

Greece has got to be one of the most wild car national teams out there. Probably why so many of us stick around after shocking campaigns. We can beat a world class Belgium and lose to Faroe Islands in the span of 1-2 years.

Very curious which Greece shows up this campaign. I have low expectations and usually Greece steps up when expectations are low. It's a paradox.

Greece tied Belgium on the 89th minute Lukaku goal but I get what your saying. We deserved that game if not for stupid 2nd yellow given by the ref to Tachtsidis. Greece get amped up for the bigger tests.

^ Yes I'm fully aware of the draw but both our games were very competitive against them.

this Bosnia game imo is make or break. It's tough because it's away game. I find out NT has a poor psychology but if we build momentum belief sets in.

the poor start vs. romania euro 2016 was very pivotal. I think our qualifying chances very much rest on this Bosnia game. if we get a draw or win then we have a very good chance to qualify. If we don't win I think it's a very serious uphill climb (even though it shouldn't be)

actually, if you ask me from the traditional top 8 NT giants who we'd have the best chance of beating I'd put Italy up there. (eg) Germany, France, England, Brazil, Argentina, Spain, Italy) 

Italy are traditionally a slowish defensive style and they rely on set pieces (they're very similar to us). They have more skill whereas we have more strength to muscle them off set pieces easily.

For me this is the make it or break it game for us. We lose we don't qualify for the Euros.. This game is HUGE for us... At the very least we need to come out with 1 point but should try for the win...

I'm reading that Donis will be the striker and Kolovos, Masouras and Bakasetas will challenge for the 2 wing spots.... Does this make sense to anybody??? why in the world wouldn't you use Donis on the wing and take advantage of his speed along with Masouras and Kolouris as a striker??  Can you imagine Kolovos and Bakasetas on the wing😳. I hope the Coach is smarter then this and I hope he learns from Bakasetas last match as he was the worst player on the field..

Final score aside, I want to see Greece play well.

Sometimes you play great and still get unlucky. I have not seen Greece too many good games of late. It's time to step up their game and show that they  belong. It's a long tournament.

I agree but it seems like he’s going to stick with Donis as the striker.. Also Mitro is out 100% so he is not an option.. I will be speechless if bakasetas starts in this game.

Donis isn't clinical as a single striker we'll lose or draw for sure if he does that

A draw for us would be like a win. If we can sneak out a victory then I think it puts us in a great position mentally going forward and into the match vs Italy where the team will be confident at home vs Italy and maybe Greece make it 3 wins out of 3. 

Our styles are similar so it will suit us just fine, not like going up against a speed filled side like say a France where we wouldn't fair well.

Bakasetas will not be able to counter as he has no speed  and he can’t pass.. overall he is s%$#!.. With Mitro out you MUST start Kolouris as a Striker and you need to put Donis on the wing with Masouras.. This by far gives us the best chance to win and actually create a few scoring chances.. I have a bad feeling after reading a few articles that we are going to see bakasetas on the wing..

So many formations being floated....I've seen Masouras - Koulouris - Donis.  I've seen Masouras - Fortounis (false 9) - Donis. Donis up top with fortounis right behind him. So basically, we do not know.

Makes me nervous to hear that Bakasetas will be playing winger. What is Anastasiadis thinking?

Yes even Agonasport said he was the worst player on the NT and he should not be considered for selection on the Ethniki in the future.

I hope Anastasiadis sees now that he is useless. He didnt play against Bosnia so I suppose the coach recognized his limitations. 😀

      UEFA Nations League format confirmed
      UEFA has confirmed the final competition rules and regulations for the UEFA Nations League, less than a year before the first match is due to be played on 6 September 2018. The new logo for the tournament was also unveiled following Wednesday's UEFA Executive Committee meeting in Nyon.
      All you need to know about the UEFA Nations League
      2018/19 UEFA Nations League: how it works
      The UEFA Nations League is a new competition that aims to ensure the continued success of national team football by replacing most friendlies with competitive matches and by allowing all nations to play against equally ranked teams.
      All 55 UEFA associations enter.
      The teams are split into four leagues, A–B–C–D, according to their position in the UEFA National Team Coefficient Rankings following the end of the European Qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup (as per 11 October 2017; play-off results will not be included).
      League A will consist of the 12 top-ranked teams. The next 12 teams will be in League B, the next 15 in League C and the remaining 16 in League D.
      Leagues A and B will each comprise four groups of three teams.
      League C will contain one group of three teams and three groups of four sides; League D will be formed by four groups of four teams.
      All draw procedures to be confirmed. Matches to be played home and away between September and November 2018 (teams will play four or six games depending on the size of their group).
      The four group winners of League A will qualify for the UEFA Nations League Finals, to be held in June 2019, with two semi-finals, a third-place match and the final. One host country will be appointed by the UEFA Executive Committee in December 2018 from among the finalist teams.
      The group winners in Leagues B, C and D will gain promotion and those who finish bottom of the groups in Leagues A, B and C will be relegated.
      National teams will thus either be competing to become UEFA Nations League winners, or be fighting for promotion and to avoid relegation.
      The League Phase Draw for the UEFA Nations League will take place at the SwissTech Convention Centre in Lausanne on 24 January 2018, when the new UEFA Nations League trophy will also be unveiled.
      Qualifying for UEFA EURO 2020
      Qualifying for UEFA EURO 2020 remains largely the same (with 24 finalists in all), although the European Qualifiers will now begin in the March after a major tournament instead of immediately in September (i.e. March 2019 in this case). No team will gain auomatic qualification as hosts (there are 13 host nations in all).
      Qualifying group stage (20 teams qualify)
      The teams will be split into ten groups of five or six, and the top two from each group will qualify for the final tournament, determining the first 20 places.
      Play-offs (4 teams qualify) 
      The last four EURO places will be won through the European Qualifiers play-offs, which will be contested by the 16 UEFA Nations League group winners (i.e. the four group winners in each of the four divisions).
      Each league will have a path of its own and each path will feature two single-leg semi-finals and one single-leg final.  The winner of each path will win a ticket to UEFA EURO 2020.
      If a UEFA Nations League group winner has already qualified via the European Qualifiers, then their spot will go to the next best-ranked team in their league. If a league does not have four teams to compete, the remaining slots are allocated to teams from another league, according to the overall UEFA Nations League rankings.

      Οι πιθανοί αντίπαλοι του Ολυμπιακού στα προκριματικά
       

       
      Οι πιθανοί αντίπαλοι στον τρίτο προκριματικό είναι οι εξής με τα τωρινά δεδομένα: Χάποελ Μπερ Σεβά (Ισραήλ), Αστάνα (Καζακστάν), Παρτιζάν (Σερβία), Ριέκα (Κροατία), Ρόζενμποργκ (Νορβηγία), Σλάβια Πράγας (Τσεχία), Χαφναρφιόρντουρ (Ισλανδία), Βιτορούλ (Ρουμανία), Ζίλινα (Σλοβακία), Ζαλγκίρις (Λιθουανία) 

      Οι πιθανοί αντίπαλοι στα play offs είναι οι εξής με τα τωρινά δεδομένα: ΑΠΟΕΛ (Κύπρος), Μάλμε (Σουηδία), Μπάτε Μπορίσοφ (Λευκορωσία), Μάριμπορ (Σλοβενία), Καραμπάχ (Αζερμπαϊτζάν). 

      Ο Ολυμπιακός φέτος (όπως και πέρυσι) θα έχει την υψηλότερη βαθμολογία σε αυτούς τους δύο προκριματικούς, καθώς έχει συγκεντρώσει την υψηλότερη βαθμολογία (64.580) την τελευταία πενταετία, ενώ δεύτερη (και αρκετά πίσω του) είναι η Σέλτικ με 42.785 βαθμούς.
