Atromitos, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 3-2 Super League success versus PAOK.

It’s not been often in recent games that Atromitos have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. It will be a concern for them that Atromitos have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 9 goals in the process.

OFI Crete boss Georgios Simos has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Ricardo Vaz (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Adil Nabi (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not able to play.
For this match, we think that OFI Crete will likely create enough chances to put one past this Atromitos lineup, but that possibly won’t quite be as many as they’ll concede.
We’re predicting a close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Atromitos after the 90. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
