The latest match of Kosovo was against Greece on Sunday, with the outcome being a disappointing 2:0 defeat away from home. Being the host turned out to be of little importance in Kosovo’s recent ten encounters, with the sides performing on home ground triumphing on 4 occasions and the visitors recording four wins. The result was a draw in just two of the outfit’s most recent 10 clashes. One of Kosovo’s five previous meetings finished with more than 2.5 goals and two saw both sides finding the net. Kosovo managed to prevent their opponents from scoring on one occasion and they failed to net goals on their own in two of those. The total goals scored across the team’s last five outings amounted to 12.
