Mitroglou hasn't played much at club level looks out of sorts. At his best, he is our best striker.

The team will be set up differently in Sarajevo and I can see us playing cautious and using counter attacks. Donis will be handy on the counter. A draw won't be a bad result.

Siovas and Kourbelis were both good today.

Possible starters for Bosnia match

? 4 2 3 1

  • Vlachodimos
  • Bakakis-Soc-Siovas-Koutris
  • Kourbelis-Zeca
  • Donis-Samaris-Fortounis
  • Koulouris

Masouras sub

Has this squad been rumoured? Or is this what you want to see?

Also does anyone believe if Manolas or Sokratis would’ve done the same pass that Kourbelis assisted to Fortounis? I don’t think so.

Kourbelis and Siovas both deserve to start next game they were very under control at the back.

I'm guessing.

I think Anastasiadis got the tactics right with Liechtenstein, except for starting Bakasetas who has now gone 20 matches without a goal. Time to give Koulouris and Donis more chances in starting line up.

I can see him going with something like that. I think they will stick to a tight defensive game plan and just smother Dzeko and wait for an opportunity to attack and that's where Donis will give them problems. A draw would be great for us and a win is possible too especially with Sokratis in the back to shut them down. I was happy with Masouras effort yesterday and he created a lot of chances, he just needed to hit the target on a couple of shots. As I said just no Bakasetas in the lineup and on the pitch at any time please.

He should be there with the team in Bosnia just waiting for final green light from FIFA which should come tomorrow.

Is that guy any good? What does he bring to to the table to get called up?

He has 11 goals for Panionios this season, I have only seen him play a couple of times and thought he was decent. 

I doubt he will get playing time vs Bosnia..

The verdict is mostly against Bakasetas! Great, I agree lol 😀

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.

siovas and kourbelis (who's a cdm/cb) are both good ball playing cb's but sokratis and manolas are better defensively. sokratis and manolas usually just do conservative passes to the wings.

Looking around the other Euro qualifying groups like Group A which has England there with Czecks and Bulgaria, Kosovo would have been a great draw for us as I mentioned after the draw was held in Dublin. The Czecks looked like a total disaster losing 0-5 to England? Bulgaria are getting better but we would have been in the top 2. Also Group G would have been a dream group Poland, Austria, Israel, Skops and Latvia. Poland are a good side but nothing spectacular, Austria are in total shambles of late, and Israel are average we would have taken them. It would have been fun as well to take on the loser Skops and beat them. It would have been a lock to finish in top 2 in this table, most likely even first.

Agree but it also could have been a lot worse as we could have been paired in the Netherlands and Germany, Spain and Sweden, all in all we did get a group that at the very least should give us a chance to qualify. No excuses we need to finish 2nd in this group.

I think siovas and Kourbelis should start next game also. They didn’t do anything to lose their place. The team won. Take out Bakasetas and start Donis. Keep the rest the same. They did well.

I dunno it's cuz it was just liechenstein they didn't really have much threats. bosnia is a different animal. sokratis has shown he's capable of man marking dzeko out of a game. if he's 100% we gotta start sokratis

Starting Socratis is not even a question and if it is a question it’s a really dumb one.. If Socratis is healthy of course you start him.. you can build confidence from the Liechtenstein game but by no means can you judge how our defenders defended in that game..

Yes being drawn into the same group as Germany and Holland would have been the hardest possible draw.

Well In that case, you can’t really judge anyone else either right? I mean then you may as well not stop and say Donis scored. But it was only Liechtenstein. Which I’m sure 99 percent of the goalies in the world would’ve stopped. Vlachodimos can’t be judged either. He did nothing. You can say the same thing about every player. Can’t you?

sokratis donis and vlacho are in form and play at bigger clubs then siovas and kourbelis.

I never said Sokratis isn’t good enough to start. That would be ridiculous. Of course he is. I’m just a firm believer in rewarding players who have worked hard and have won. I like the saying if it’s not broken don’t fix it.

What does club team have to do with it? I would hardly call Stuttgart a big club.

Sokratis is one of our main players along with Vlachodimos, Donis, Manolas and Fortounis. They are at a higher level than most of our players so it shouldn’t be questioned. I agree with you though you shouldn’t really change a winning team. Also Kourbelis played well and should play again. I’d be disappointed if he was dropped.

The competition he plays against week in and week out is miles ahead. Getting marked by Hummels is different than getting marked by anyone in the superleague...

      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.
