UEFA Score: The battles of the opponents for the 17th place

Greece has found itself in a difficult position in the UEFA rankings having fallen to 18th place and now it is only in the hands of Olympiacos to be able through its course in the Europa League and the qualification against Eindhoven to give additional points to our country and to restore it. in 17th place and maybe even higher.

Of course, things are no longer exclusively in the hands of Greece, especially Olympiakos and its rivals in the UEFA rankings.

As we have already written the good thing is that Serbia (16th), Switzerland (17th), the Czech Republic (19th) and Croatia (20th) continue with only one team, also in the Europa League and during Monday they also learned their opponents.

In fact, we could say that the draws for the Red Star (Serbia), Young Boys (Switzerland), Slavia Prague (Czech Republic) were difficult and only the Croatians with Dinamo Zagreb have more chances for something good. Of course, everything will be judged on the field on February 18 and 25.

But let’s see in detail the draws that our opponents had in the battle of the UEFA standings.

Red Star (Serbia) – Milan (Italy)

Young Boys (Switzerland) – Leverkusen (Germany)

Slavia Prague (Czech Republic) – Leicester (England)

Krasnodar (Russia) – Dinamo Zagreb (Croatia)

Of course, what Greece wants from the “red and whites” is to have better results than the four opponents in the UEFA battle and if they can qualify. If this happens then Greece will be able to return to 17th place and look even higher at 16th depending of course on what the rest will do.

Greece can return to 17th place even if Olympiacos simply has better results than Young Boys in the next phase, even if it does not pass to the “16” but in this scenario our country will want the exclusion of all of the rest who have a difficult task after Monday’s draw.

The worst case scenario, of course, is for Olympiacos to be eliminated from Eindhoven and for everyone else to qualify. This will of course bring Greece even lower in the UEFA rankings.
