Heading into the final game of the 2014 FIFA World Cup UEFA group stage qualifiers, Group G is set for a almighty and dramatic climax with Bosnia and Herzegovina and Greece tied on points in first and second place, respectively.

No other group is as tight, with Greece only lagging behind Bosnia and Herzegovina on goal difference.

Hosting bottom placed Liechtenstein in their final group game, Greece will look to do what damage they can to their rival's advantage, although with 17 goals separating the top two, Fernando Santos will instead need Lithuania to somehow take a point from Edin Dzeko and Co. for his team to come out on top.

Stranger things have happened in international football, but even if automatic qualification is now out of reach, Greece will still be looking to produce a strong showing against Liechtenstein to ready themselves for the playoffs where they may yet meet the likes of England or the Ukraine.

Not to mention, with their country wracked with social and political unrest, Greece's footballers will be seeking to lift their troubled nation with a glorious home finale to their group qualification campaign.

Team News

PAOK midfielder Kosta Katsouranis and Olympiakos defender Jose Holebas are both suspended, although with goalscoring on the agenda for Santos' team, the extra opportunities to field some of Greece's exciting youngsters may prove beneficial.

Sotiris Ninis and Ioannis Fetfatzidis could feature to spur Greece on with the likes of Giorgos Karagounis and Vasilis Torosidis bringing experience, balance and leadership to the lineup.

With information scarce, it seems that Liechtenstein have nothing to declare when it comes to new injury or suspension news.

 

Prediction

The Greeks will likely run up a hefty total about their hapless visitors, Liechtenstein, which would not be able to lift themselves from the Group G canvas even if they were to win in Athens, as they are stuck on just two points from nine games.

Latvia are currently in fifth place, but with seven points to their name, they would be safe even if the unthinkable were to happen for Greece.

Santos and his men will instead be wishing for such a fate to befall Bosnia and Herzegovina, which must slip up if Greece are to have any real chance at snatching automatic qualification themselves.
