Our full set of predictions, statistics and match poll for PAOK v Aris FC can be seen below (including the best match odds).
PAOK will play in this game following a 0-0 Conference League draw versus Slovan Bratislava.
It’s been all too rare in recent games where PAOK haven’t conceded. In fact, PAOK have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, leaking 8 goals on the way. Such a trend isn’t assured to follow through into this game, though.
Analysis of their past results shows that PAOK:
- have not lost a league tie with Aris FC in their previous 3 matches.
- haven't been defeated in their previous 3 league matches at home.
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to PAS Giannina in Super League action, Aris FC will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that match, Aris FC managed 62% possession and 10 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. At the other end, PAS Giannina got 8 shots at goal with 6 of them on target. Jan-Marc Schneider (5'), Nicolae Milinceanu (35'), Juan José Perea (54'), Rodrigo Erramuspe (71') and Ahmad Mendes Moreira (85') scored for PAS Giannina.
Apostolos Mantzios's Aris FC have managed to stick the ball in the net a total of 9 times in the course of their latest 6 matches. The overall goals that have been scored against them during that same period comes to 9.
Ahead of this meeting, Aris FC haven't won against PAOK when they have played them away from home in the previous 8 league matches. Not an away record to be proud of.
