Fixtures featuring Ionikos have usually been entertaining affairs lately with a lot of goalmouth action the rule rather than the exception. Over their past six games alone, a total of 22 goals have been scored for both teams combined (at an average of 3.67 goals per game) with 15 of them accredited to Ionikos. That sort of trend isn’t assured to be carried forward into this next game, of course.
Ahead of this meeting, Ionikos are unbeaten in their previous 2 home league matches.
It is worth noting that Panetolikos have struggled for goals over their previous 6 encounters, recording the unsatisfactory return of just 4. In those matches, The Canaries have also seen the overall goal tally against them equal 6.

Team News: Ionikos
The Ionikos manager Dimitrios Spanos does not have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this clash owing to a fully healthy group available for selection.
Team News: Panetolikos
In an otherwise available squad, there’s only the lone fitness problem for the Panetolikos manager Yannis Anastasiou to be concerned with. Alexandros Malis (Achilles tendon rupture) misses out for this game.
We feel that Panetolikos should be able to put one past this Ionikos team, but it possibly won’t quite be as many as the goals that they could concede.
We reckon that it will be a close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Ionikos at full-time. Let’s see what eventuates.
