Team News: OFI Crete
Kosmas Tsilianidis (Arthroscopie), Luc Castaignos (Unknown Injury) and Adil Nabi (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will be missing for OFI Crete gaffer Nikos Nioplias.
Team News: PAS Giannina
Thanks to a largely available group of players, there’s just the lone fitness issue for the PAS Giannina gaffer Argirios Giannikis to contend with. Antonis Ikonomopoulos (Bruised Acromioclavicular) won’t be playing here.
We’re thinking that PAS Giannina will do well to breach the defence of this OFI Crete side who will likely manage to score & go ahead.
We’re therefore seeing a very even contest with a 1-0 winning score for OFI Crete at the end of the match.
Hopefully it’s a good one.
