PAOK arrive at Peristeri Stadium on Sunday for the Super League clash with home side Atromitos.
Our Atromitos v PAOK predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below - as well as the best betting odds.
Atromitos will be hoping for a better result following a 2-0 Super League defeat last time out to OFI Crete.
In that match, Atromitos had 46% possession and 11 shots at goal with 6 of them on target. OFI Crete had 11 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. Fiorin Durmishaj (7', 10') was the scorer for OFI Crete.
It has been seldom in recent games where Atromitos have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Atromitos have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 games, letting in 13 goals during that time. Historical results aside, we’ll just have to find out if such a trend will continue on in this match.
Pre-game facts show that Atromitos:
- haven't been beaten in the league by PAOK in their previous 2 matches.
- have not won at home in their last 4 league games. Things will have to change soon.
PAOK go into this match following a 1-3 Super League win vs Panathinaikos in their previous fixture.

PAOK have regularly broken through opposing defences leading up to this encounter, having scored 15 goals in their previous 6 matches. Having said that, PAOK have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 6 of those same outings.

Our thinking is that Atromitos are certainly able to score a goal against this PAOK side, although one goal possibly won’t be enough to avoid a loss.
We are therefore anticipating a very close game with a 1-2 advantage for PAOK at full-time.
