Saudi Arabia vs Greece Preview

Saudi Arabia vs Greece

Competition – International Friendly

Stadium РEstadio de la Cartuja

Date: 15th May 2018

Kick-off time – 18:30 GMT

Saudi Arabia will be looking for their second win over a European side in seven games when they take to the field for this encounter, while the Greeks who missed out on the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup will be looking to build a new team for their next competitive qualifiers.

Saudi Arabia have only beaten Moldova in their last six games against European opponents, and with some believing that they can get out of their World Cup group, they will need to prove how prepared they are with a win in this game.

With Greece using a domestic-only team, the Saudis have a good chance of getting the win they desire.

The Saudis have two wins, one draw and two losses from their last five games.

Mohammad Al-Sahlawi who has netted 28 times in just 37 international games will be looking to help them improve that stat here.

Greece have two wins, two losses and a draw from their last five games, and they will be led by defensive midfielder Alexandros Tziolis who has 71 caps already and plays club football in Saudi Arabia.
