Monday, January 23, at 17:30, on “Zosimades Stadium” in Ioannina, Giannina meets PAOK in a match of round number 17 of Super League.
Giannina made a season than expected, being currently in 6th place with 25 points, six behind second ranked team, Panionios. In the previous round, it managed to make the most of home advantage and to impose even 1-0 in front of Panionios. Moreover, 14 of the 25 points earned Giannina came along eight confrontations at home, where he was defeated twice, 0-2 and 1-2 with Olympiakos Asteras Tripolis. Interestingly cashed four goals, all in those two defeats, which have six games remaining and brought points, ending with no goal conceded.
PAOK has a team that every year is aimed qualification in the European Cups, place set to meet Schalke in the Europa League sixteenths. Until then antreaza championship, occupying 7th place with 23 points, three less than ten would have if he received a penalty after a federal decision. It has two fewer matches than Panionios, the team ranked second and if you win three points can come from it. In the last round, PAOK and Levadiakos made workout, ranked penultimate team in front of which was won 3-0 and thus reached four wins in the last five rounds.
The two teams acquaintances well as delaying the beginning of the season made it round match play earlier this month when Giannina has produced surprise and won 1-0. Monday clash promises to be quite another, PAOK learning from that defeat and I think in the end is more likely to impose, with quality players in the squad.
