Team News: Ionikos
Ionikos manager Dimitrios Spanos has to currently contend with reduced team options. Dmytro Chygrynskyi (Tear in the abductor muscle), Spyros Fourlanos (Unknown Injury) and Theodosis Macheras (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be playing here. Dálcio cannot play in this game through suspension.
We feel that in this game, Panathinaikos should get the win and a possible clean sheet when they meet Ionikos, who won’t find it easy finding the net themselves.
We can therefore see a pretty comfortable 2-0 margin for Panathinaikos by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
