Both countries will be hoping to qualify for the World Cup though Spain will be expected to win this game considering their superior strength in depth and home advantage. However, the Spanish cannot afford to take Greece lightly.

Latest Greece results
Greece’s last result was a 0-0 draw with Slovenia in November.

Greece have scored four goals in their last four games.
Spain have a better side on paper. Moreover, Greece have lot played against top class opposition for a while as the Nations League pitted them mainly against mid-tier European nations. I expect Spain to coast to victory in this game and win 3-0. The Spanish will play attacking football, knowing that this game will present them with a good opportunity to claim three points.
Anytime goal scorers
Spain- Alvaro Morata. The most senior striker in the Spanish squad, Morata will be expected to lead the line for his country against Greece. He has 18 international goals to his name and this game presents him with an opportunity to add to his tally as he will be fed with balls from his midfielders.
Greece- Tasos Bakasetas- Greece do have the potential to frustrate Spain if the home side are not at their best. Greek captain Bakasetas will be expected to lead from the front and the Trabzonspor captain will be looking to trouble the Spanish defenders. If Greece do manage to find the net in this game, there is a good chance that the goal will come from Bakasetas who currently has two international goals to his name.
Our Odds and Tips In Detail
Spain have a better side with their players regularly being tested against the best in the world. The same cannot be said of Greece as the majority of their players play in mid-tier European leagues. Spain should easily win this game 3-0 and get their 2022 World Cup Qualification campaign started on a good note.
