Euro 2020 Group J - Armenia-Greece (15 November 2019, Vazgan Sargsyan Republican Stadium,Yerevan)

Recommended Posts

Armenia still has hope to qualify for the first time for a major tournament. Good opportunity for Van ‘t Schip to prepare the Ethniki under the pressure of a team that is eager to win.

Will be an interesting game given what this means for Armenia, they are a decent team and let's not forget, they beat us in Athens... whilst we are still experimenting, we finally saw the team play wonderful football against Bosnia and we finally won a game!

From what I understand, Vasiliadis will get a start, who will partner him is the big question as it looks very doubtful we will see the Galanopoulos-Kourbelis combo that worked very well against Bosnia. Suggestions it could be Bouchalakis... I think, this could unsettle us.

We have an array of attacking threats which is a nice change. Tsimakas will prob start LB and there is talk Koutris could start higher up on the left, otherwise, Mantalos or Masouras will start. 

Looking forward to this and how we perform, would be great to get some revenge and most importantly, get consecutive wins, will be a massive statement if we turn the tables on Armenia and Finland who made us look silly not long ago.

Ethniki are a young and talented enthusiastic team, they have a good structure and culture atm. They will continue the modern style of pressing higher up. This also improves our attacking game as well as creating immense pressure for the opposition.

Another thing, the Geradiko sells yeeroses either chicken or pork, both including chips inside, whereas, an actual Yeeros shop has lamb, beef or chicken. Why are they different ??

I see you're from Sydney... wonder if I have bumped into you at a Gyradiko in Bexley or Rosebery lol. The Gyradiko is the Greek style of gyro, Yeeros is the Greek-Aussie way, both very good, Victoria Yeeros king of the Y way.

Maybe my man..Victoria yeeros is great..there used to be a carpark across the road from there, and we used to eat there at the rooftop level on Sundays, years ago. Now its a highrise building.

There is Illawarra rd Yeeros too but Victoria is d'bomb.

Geradiko at Bexley is excellent too, glad I'm not vegan!

I know it’s off topic but Victoria yeeros is not as good as it used to be. There’s another one 5 minutes away it’s called the yeeros shop. That used to be good aswell. The Gyradiko in Bexley has declined aswell. There’s a new one opening in Ramsgate, hope it’s good. You can’t beat a yeeros from Greece. My brother has his own shop and all I got to say and without being biased is that he has the best yeeros in Sydney. 

Back on topic, apparently Donis, Koutris and Vasiliadis are set to start for this game. I’m very happy about this.

Van Schipster should eat a yeeros with tzatziki at a press conference to show his intent as the national team coach, as he expresses his views on a given match, no doubt about it, he would draw in everybody.

Despina's early prediction.. 3-1 Greece, based on new culture. She is definitely now out of control.

So it seems Anastasiadis F***ed up our chances against Estonia with his idiotic experimental team with Barkas Lampropoulos etc. (see last paragraph):

https://www.agonasport.com/agonasport-allnews/greece-have-very-slim-shot-at-euro-2020-qualifying-playoffs

(As it happened, I considered the same question on this morning and reached the same conclusions. To be fair I see literally zero chance for us now. Even a draw against the Estonians would have been more than enough to secure a position in the Nations League playoff.)

I guess even Skibbe could have squeezed out a draw against Estonia. He wasnt particularly keen on experimenting and he would have started our best players like Manolas, Papastathopoulos, Mitroglou.

If EPO would have had a little more patience with Skibbe... Who did ever thought of this last autumn? Even after a disastrous campaign, we were so damn close! Position #31 would mean we could compete in the League B playoff. A single extra point would have helped us through. F*** Anastasiadis and the mentally afflicted leaders of EPO. (I wasnt better or more clever: I was glad when Skibbe got the sack.)

Really? More Tziolis and Tzavellas? Really? Personally I'm glad it all played out as it did seeing as the NT is playing its best football in years.

Like I have said previously, the opportunities this team and federation have squandered in the last 5 years is ridiculous... and now we have to do it the very hard way again. At least JVS and co look to be getting the first and hard part right, we have removed complacent players and brought in high spirited players that care and we actually played great football against Bosnia. Every game means so much now and a win here would mean alot for our momentum

Van Schip is Phat!! He has got it goin on dawgs.. and we all thought we had to rely on Mykonos fc - players above mentioned. We needed a manager with backbone to show players and EPO who run this store!!  

I hope Alefantos is shadow boxing about now, ye, you want some more?!!!

      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.
