Panathinaikos take on the visitors PAOK at “Apostolos Nikolaidis Stadium” in the gameweek two of the Greek Super League Play Offs. The match will be played in Athens on Wednesday, May 17th.
The main stage of the Greek Super League Panathinaikos finished at the third position in the table with 57 points earned, 45 goals for and 19 goals against. “To Trifylli” began its hunt for the place in the UEFA Champions League next season from 1:1 draw against Panionios which means that Eurocups’ battle for the side is all ahead. In 2017 Panathinaikos are simply unbeatable in front of their supporters recording 11 triumphs, two draws and not a single loss in 13 encounters. The team’s winning home run has reached eight clashes and has been lasting since the 8th of February. It should be noted that Panathinaikos recorded eight clean-sheets during their winning streak and, in general, the side managed to concede only one goal in 13 games played in face of its fans.

In the early May PAOK took the Greek Cup, consequently, the current season may be considered rather successful for the team. After the ending of the main stage of the Greek Super League, “Dikefalos Tou Vorra” found itself sitting at the second place in the standings with 61 points taken and 52-19 goal difference. PAOK started their performance in the Super League Play Offs from 0:1 defeat to AEK Athens FC at the home ground and at the moment, having gained two points, the side shares the second-third places in the table with forthcoming opponent on Wednesday clash. Generally speaking, it makes no difference for PAOK where to play either at their own ground or on the road as in 2017 the side recorded eight victories, three draws and two losses in 13 away encounters.
Panathinaikos and PAOK met four times in this season resulting in two home wins of each side: in favour of Panathinaikos with 1:0 and 2:0 scorelines as well as in favour of PAOK with 3:0 and 4:0 scorelines. I believe that the hosts will be able at least to pick up some points in the grudge fight.
Prediction for the match: Panathinaikos to win with 0.0 Asian handicap.
