The hosts suffered a 3-0 defeat to the Netherlands last time out, while their visitors were most recently in friendly action against Malta, losing 1-0.

Gus Poyet’s side had got off to the perfect start with successive victories over Gibraltar and the Republic of Ireland, but having now come up short against France and the Netherlands without scoring once, Greece have been demoted to third spot in the standings.

However, on account of their promotion to the second tier of the Nations League in 2022-23, Greece will qualify for the playoffs at the very worst, and only goal difference is separating them from the Netherlands in second place – however, the Dutch do possess a game in hand.

In addition, Greece enter Sunday’s game having gone unbeaten in their last four European Championship qualifiers on their own turf – winning each of their last three – but Poyet’s side are also without a home clean sheet at this stage of proceedings since 2011, offering Gibraltar a tiny glimmer of hope.

With five teams gunning for qualification in Group B, Gibraltar pushed their competitive woes to one side on Wednesday as they travelled east to face Malta, but all they had to show for their long journey was another defeat.

Four defeats of 3-0 scoreline to France, the Netherlands, the Republic of Ireland and Greece leaves Julio Cesar Ribas’ side rock-bottom of the Group B standings with a -12 goal difference, and they are one of only three teams still without a point or a goal in qualifying.

Gibraltar have only ever scored twice away from home in Euros qualifying – breaching Scotland and Poland’s backline in 2015 – and 390 spectators were in attendance to witness Ribas’ side lose 3-0 to Greece at their temporary Estadio Algarve home in March.

Greece Team News

Due to his red card in June’s defeat to France, West Ham United new boy Dinos Mavropanos was suspended against the Netherlands, but the 25-year-old is now back from his ban and should earn an immediate recall to the backline.

Panagiotis Retsos will likely be sacrificed to accomodate the former Arsenal man, while Kostas Tsimikas picked up a booking for handball last time out and is one game away from a ban.

Left-back Bernardo Lopes was forced off with an unspecified injury in the 57th minute against Malta, opening the door for Ethan Jolley, Jayce Olivero or Joseph Chipolina to return to Ribas’ defensive-heavy formation.

The latter’s brother, 40-year-old Roy Chipolina, continues to don the captain’s armband for Gibraltar and is poised to make his 70th appearance for his country here.
