Greece – Spain
The first of the two finals that the Spanish team will have to face to be in the Qatar World Cup in 2022 has arrived. Spain is playing in Athens against Greece, in a match that will decide the future of the two teams in this group.
Spain needs to win in Greece to guarantee a chance to finish first, regardless of other results. La Roja enters its last two matches in second place, two points behind Sweden and four ahead of third-place Greece. Spain’s final game is at home against Sweden. A win by Sweden at fourth-place Georgia on Thursday and a Spain draw will secure first place for the Swedes. Injuries deplete Spain’s squad. Among the absent players are Pedri González, Ferran Torres, Marcos Llorente, Gerard Moreno, Mikel Oyarzabal, Ansu Fati and Eric García.
It will be the seventh match for both teams in this qualifying round for the Qatar World Cup 2022, and the game will be played at 8:45 p.m. this Thursday, November 11, 2021. The Spyros Louis Olympic Stadium in Athens.
