Our tips, poll and stats for Volos v Panetolikos can all be found here - along with the latest match odds.
Volos will be looking for an improved result here following the 3-0 Super League defeat last time out to Aris FC.
In that game, Volos managed 42% possession and 7 attempts on goal with 1 on target. Aris FC got 15 attempts at goal with 5 on target. Manu García (47', 60', 74') scored for Aris FC.
A recurring theme in more recent Volos games is the number of results with a nil in them.
Taking their prior sextet of clashes before this one, in as many as 6 of them a wager on BTTS would have been a loser.
Their prior results show that Volos:
- are unbeaten in the league by Panetolikos in their last 3 matches.
- are without a win at home for the past 2 matches in the league.
Previously, Panetolikos drew 1-1 in the Super League match with PAS Giannina.
In that game, Panetolikos managed 50% possession and 9 shots on goal with 3 of them on target. The scorer for Panetolikos was Frederico Duarte (82'). PAS Giannina got 8 shots on goal with 3 on target. Rodrigo Erramuspe (89') was the scorer for PAS Giannina.
It is worth noting that Panetolikos have suffered from a lack of goals in their past six games, contributing the unsatisfactory return of just 4. In those matches, The Canaries have also seen the collective goal tally of their opponents equal 12. Previous results aside, we’ll just have to find out whether such a trend will persist here in this match or not.
Head to head
Checking out their prior head to head duels going back to 07/03/2021, it’s been all-even between these two clubs with Volos winning 2 of those games, Panetolikos 2 and 2 being drawn in regulation time.
A sum of 13 goals were yielded between them in this period, with 7 of them for Volos and 6 belonging to The Canaries. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 2.17.
The last league fixture featuring the two was Super League match day 7 on 08/10/2022 when it ended Panetolikos 2-3 Volos.
On that occasion, Panetolikos managed 31% possession and 7 shots at goal with 5 of them on target. The goals were scored by Levan Shengelia (4') and Nadrey Dago (16').
At the other end, Volos got 15 shots on goal with 7 of them on target. Anastasios Tsokanis (27', 35') and Georgios Koutsias (78') scored.
The match was refereed by Konstantinos Katikos.
Team News: Volos
Anastasios Tsokanis (Bruise) and Symeon Papadopoulos (Cruciate Ligament Surgery) aren’t available for Volos manager Kostas Bratsos. Players who are serving a ban and are therefore ineligible to play are Jean Barrientos and Milos Deletic.
Team News: Panetolikos
Thanks to a largely available group of players, there is only the lone fitness worry for the Panetolikos gaffer Giannis Anastasiou to contend with. Michalis Bakakis (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Sebastian Mladen and Levan Shengelia.
We’re inclined to think that Panetolikos have enough to score a goal against this Volos side, however it probably shouldn’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re predicting both teams to score in a 2-1 winning score for Volos by the conclusion of the game. It’s a very tough call.
