Due to a fully healthy group available to choose from, the OFI Crete manager Nikos Nioplias has zero fitness worries at all before this match.
Our feeling is that OFI Crete might well have a job on their hands to breach the defence of this Volos lineup who we think might well be able to grind out a win.
We therefore fancy a 1-0 victory for Volos at the end of this one.
