Panionios collapsed at the end of the season: the side has been failing to win since the 2nd of April across five consecutive encounters covering two draws and three losses. After the ending of the main stage of the Greek Super League, Panionios found themselves sitting at the fifth place in the standings with 52 points earned and 35-23 goal difference. In the first round of the Super League Play Offs “Istorikos” got 1:1 draw against Panathinaikos and at the moment they occupy the last fourth place in the group fighting for the participation in the EUFA Champions League next season. In 2017 Vladan Milojevic’s team recorded nine clashes on the road resulting in four wins, one draw and four defeats with the same 0:1 scoreline. Panionios’ no-win streak at away grounds counts for three games and has been lasting the 19th of March.
The upcoming opponents recorded two head-to-heads in this season both times ending with draws: 0:0 and 1:1. I believe that the rivals will demonstrate defensive football in the forthcoming clash as well, as it is typical for the modern Greek football.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 scored goals.
