Team News: Lamia
The Lamia manager Leonidas Vokolos will be happy not to have any fitness worries at all coming into this game thanks to a completely injury-free squad available to select from.
Team News: OFI Crete
From a largely full-strength group, there’s just a single fitness problem for the OFI Crete manager Valdas Dambrauskas to be concerned with. Giannis Theodosoulakis (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be in action.
In our opinion, OFI Crete and Lamia are both capable of scoring here.
There should be little in it, and a draw looks to be quite a realistic result. We’re therefore expecting a tight encounter with a 1-1 score draw when the referee blows the full-time whistle.
