Full predictions, pre-match stats and user poll for PAOK v FC Copenhagen are shown on this page - along with the latest match odds.
PAOK are hoping to win again after their last result, the 4-1 Super League triumph versus Apollon Smyrni.
In that match, PAOK managed 71% possession and 12 shots on goal with 8 of them on target. For PAOK, goals were scored by Stefan Schwab (4'), Karol Świderski (67'), Giannis Michailidis (72') and Douglas (94'). On the other side, Apollon Smyrni got 2 shots on goal with 2 on target. Giorgos Pamlidis (14') was the scorer for Apollon Smyrni.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent games that PAOK have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The facts show that PAOK have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 10 goals in the process. We will have to see whether or not that trend will be continued on into this next match.
FC Copenhagen head into the game following on from a 3-0 Superliga win in the defeat of Vejle BK in their previous outing.
In that match, FC Copenhagen had 53% possession and 13 shots at goal with 7 of them on target. For FC Copenhagen, the goalscorers were Jens Stage (16'), Hákon Arnar Haraldsson (29') and Jonas Wind (63'). Vejle BK had 5 shots on goal with 3 of them on target.
FC Copenhagen have been a threat going forward in the lead-up to this encounter, scoring 10 goals in their last 6 matches. This doesn’t mask the fact that FC Copenhagen have been somewhat leaky at the back, having also been scored against in 5 of those same games.

Team News: PAOK
Sverrir Ingi Ingason (Knee Injury), Sidcley (Muscle bruise), Alexandru Mitrita (Muscle Injury), Douglas Augusto (Hamstring Injury) and Nélson Oliveira (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are unavailable for PAOK gaffer Răzvan Lucescu.
Team News: FC Copenhagen
FC Copenhagen manager Jess Thorup has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Rasmus Falk (Thigh Muscle Strain) and Zeca (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not able to play.
We feel that in this game, FC Copenhagen are capable enough to find the net against this PAOK team, but it probably won’t quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re expecting a close game with a 2-1 win for PAOK by the time that the referee blows the final whistle. Should be an interesting one.
