Wednesday starting 15:00 Panetolikos AEK will meet in a match counting for the 13th round of Greek.
The home team ended 2016 with just a draw against supporters. In the match played in front of Giannina AEK remained in 10 men in the 10th minute after Aravidis C. P. shell has been removed and missed a penalty kick in minute 32. Then the hosts opened the scoring in the 67th minute by T. Pekhart and seemed AEK will end the year with a win. Unfortunately for their fans, Maboulou C. equalized in the 90th minute for Giannina + 4 ‘and the match was ended 1-1.
So AEK reached 5 games unbeaten and ranked 5th with a total of 20 points. Noteworthy is that 13 of these were obtained at home, and with the leader Olympiakos are unbeaten at home.
On the other side, Panetolikos are 9 to 15 points, 5 less than his opponent. Noteworthy is the guest band faced a few problems with the players. The central defender Miguel Rodrigues (7 games) is injured, while defensive midfielder Wilson Kamavuaka (6 games) and left midfielder Amr Warda (12 games and scored 4 goals) are away at the African Cup.
In addition, four players lately and have terminated their contracts and left the team. Here are defender Wouter Corstjens, Argentine midfielder Osmar Ferreyra (11 matches and a goal scored), striker Emmanuel Ledesma and striker main Toman (11 matches and a goal scored).
Most likely the heads of the Panetolikos will bring other players in the transfer period, but by then coach Ioannis Matzourakis have to deal with what is.
In these conditions I expect AEK in the first match of the year against supporters dominate this confrontation and to impose at least two goals. Quotas for this selection are declining, going from 2.30 to 2.00 and most likely will drop to game time.
