In the minds of coaches
In a system 3-4-1-2, Vlachodimos firmly under the beams, trio and again in the defense was chosen by John Fant Schip, with Tzavella, Gouta and Hatzidiakos, while this time Bouhalakis has Mandalos by his side, Androutsos and Tsimikas had the right and the left side respectively. In the role of organizer, Pelkas behind Masoura and Douvika.
The guests lined up with a system 4-4-1-1. Muric was under the beams, in defense Vojvodina, Rahmani, Fazilji, Aliti from right to left – Schala, Losai, Berisha and Idrisi the quartet in the center, while Rasitsa had a free role behind Muriki.
Willing to play her game, having possession of the ball, but showing sluggishness, Ethniki entered the match and its first offensive efforts were left in the middle. In fact, the first good moment in the race, which came from Kosovo, with the fastest Rasitsa to find our defense open, but Goutas “cleared” the phase, chasing in a corner.
Ethniki really threatened in the 10th minute, with Bouchalakis sending the ball to horizontal beam with a shot from outside the area (with the right), while shortly afterwards Mandalou’s collaboration with Androutso could bring something very good, but the second cross was bad. At that time the possession of the ball reached 71%-29%, but these are the cases where the numbers do not tell the truth.
In the 28th minute, his foul Tsimika brought the second threat from the Greek side, while in the 33rd minute Greece touched the goal from Douvikas ‘header after Tsimikas’ cross, which sent the ball just outside. In the caps, Rasitsa suffered again the defense of Ethniki and his shot sent the ball just above the home of Mouric.
The more the first part reached its final straight, the more Greece increased its pressure and the almost collaboration between Pelka and Masoura (as well as the shot of Tzavellas shortly after), brought us to the brink of 1-0 at 41 ‘ . Which happened in 44 ‘, when o Pelkas made an excellent cross for Masoura who sent the ball into the net with a nailed head.
It was almost missing in its next opportunity for Greece to find 2-0 and in fact with the same protagonist. After Masouras missed a contact from a cross by Tsimikas. After a vacuum, Greece began to become threatening. He missed two great opportunities in a short time and paid for it. After in the 67th minute no one was found to push the ball into the net in the cross of Tsimikas and in the 74th minute Pelkas was defeated by Mouric, the. Penalty came.
In the center of Zegrova, he made the projection Rahmani and the ball ended up in the nets of Vlachodimos. Now, Ethniki had almost a quarter in front of them to take a new lead, but coming out recklessly ahead, they almost conceded a second goal, with the excellent move of Zegrova in 88 ‘, which emptied the whole defense of Greece, but he saw Hatzidiakos taking the bite out of his mouth, chasing him on the line.
