Ricardo Vaz (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Kosmas Tsilianidis (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are unavailable for OFI Crete gaffer Georgios Simos.
Team News: Atromitos
Owing to a fully healthy squad available to select from, Atromitos manager Damir Canadi has zero fitness worries at all before this clash.
In this match, Atromitos must be fancied to put a goal past this OFI Crete outfit, however that may not quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We think that it’s going to be a close game with a 2-1 advantage for OFI Crete by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. We’ll have to see what happens.
