Kosovo invite Greece to Fadil Vokrri Stadium for FIFA World Cup qualifying action on Sunday.

Kosovo emerged victorious in their game against Georgia on Thursday thanks to an own goal from Davit Khocholava. After two straight losses, this was their first win in the qualifiers.

Greece have played two back-to-back draws in their qualifying fixtures so far and will be looking for their first win here.

They were in action against Switzerland in a friendly game on Thursday, losing 2-1 to the hosts at St. Jakob-Park.


Kosovo vs Greece Head-to-Head

The two teams have met each other just twice so far and they did not go head-to-head until 2020. They squared off in two UEFA Nations League C division fixtures last year.

Greece recorded a 2-1 away win at Sunday's venue in their maiden encounter while the game at The Olympic Stadium of Athens ended in a goalless draw a month later.

Kosovo vs Greece Prediction

When it comes to international games, home advantage matters a lot. Kosovo have been in good form in their recent fixtures but needed help from an own goal to record their first win of the campaign.

Greece were a little bit nervy in the friendly game against Switzerland but should be warmed up for this game. They have played back-to-back draws in the competition and this looks like a good chance to secure a narrow win.

Prediction: Kosovo 1-2 Greece
