Greece 0-1 Spain: Sarabia penalty puts qualification in La Roja’s hands

Luis
Enrique’s
side
took
advantage
of
a
surprise
slip
from
previous
Group
B
leaders
Sweden,
who
lost
2-0
in
Georgia
earlier
on
Thursday,
to
leapfrog
them
into
first
place.

Spain
had
never
lost
away
to
Greece
in
four
previous
meetings,
and
a
first-half
penalty
from
Pablo
Sarabia
increased
that
record
to
four
wins
and
one
draw.

They
will
book
their
place
at
Qatar
2022
if
they
can
avoid
defeat
to
Sweden
on
Sunday
in
Seville.

The
visitors
unsurprisingly
dominated
possession
but
created
little
early
on
against
a
well-organised
Greece.

The
home
side
thought
they
had
taken
the
lead
on
21
minutes
as
Giorgos
Masouras
finished
well
from
a
Thanasis
Androutsos
throughball,
but
the
Olympiakos
forward
was
offside.

Just
three
minutes
later,
Spain
were
awarded
a
penalty
after
Inigo
Martinez
was
felled
in
the
box
by
Dimitris
Giannoulis
following
a
corner,
and
Sarabia
sent
Odisseas
Vlachodimos
the
wrong
way
to
put
La
Roja
ahead.

The
hosts
needed
a
win
to
keep
alive
any
hopes
of
qualification
themselves
and
started
to
gamble
a
little
more
towards
the
end
of
the
game,
but
Spain
remained
relatively
calm
as
they
eased
to
a
vital
win
in
Athens.
