Team News: Larissa
Larissa boss Gianluca Festa has a full complement, with no fitness worries to speak of ahead of this match owing to a fully healthy group to pick from.
Team News: Lamia
Lamia boss Michalis Grigoriou has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Tyronne (Muscle Injury), Patrick Bahanack (Muscle Injury) and Theodoros Vasilakakis (Ankle Injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet. Lazar Romanic is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Our thinking is that Lamia will manage to score a goal against this Larissa lineup, but that possibly won’t be as many as they’ll concede.
We’re going for a very close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Larissa at the end of this one. It should be a decent one.
