Panathinaikos vs PAOK
Apostolos Nikolaidis Stadium (Athens)
There isn’t a round of the Greece Super League in which we don’t see at least one derby match between big rivals. It is so because the league is very strong this season, with many great teams that will fight for the title until the end. Panathinaikos and PAOK are certainly among those teams and this match between them is one of the biggest derby matches in Greece.Get Your Sign-Up Bonus!
Panathinaikos lost in the last derby match against AEK in this stadium. Now they must repay their fans with a great match and a win. In the last round they won confidently against Asteras in an away match, but a win against PAOK is something else. Panathinaikos are in 3rd place with 12 points, 4 wins and a draw. Panathinaikos have a point less than PAOK, but also one match less played. They also have a match in the Europa League ahead of them against Maccabi Haifa but I believe that they will do everything to win in this match against PAOK.
PAOK also didn’t win in their first derby match in this season against their city rival Aris. However, they are in great form and currently in 2nd place in the table with 13 points, 4 wins, a draw and a defeat. Next week they also have a difficult match in the Europa Conference League against Eintracht Frankfurt. In the last round, they won confidently at home against last-placed Volos, but this match will require more strength, discipline, and wisdom if they want to get all 3 points.
Expert Betting Tips
Both teams are complete, there aren’t any major issues in the line ups, so the managers will play with their best players. These teams are playing really beautiful football this season, they are attacking and pressing a lot, and in this match they will both want to control the ball and we can expect big fight in the middle of the field. In their last 5 matches we saw BTTS in 3 of them, and as this season they are more offensive oriented I think that they will both score at least a goal in this match.
