Greece will have to work around two bans for this match, with Pantelis Chatzidiakos receiving a red card against Sweden and captain Anastasios Bakasetas receiving his second booking of qualification.
With Dinos Mavropanos ruled out of November’s games, Van ‘t Schip may resort to Dimitris Goutas, an uncapped centre-back who has already scored four goals in the Super Lig this season.
While Bakasetas serves his suspension, Petros Mantalos is expected to fill in in the hole, while Kostas Tsimikas could be called upon as an emergency centre-back in the hosts’ back three.
