Dimitrios Kourbelis (Tear in the abductor muscle) and Yassin Ayoub (Meniscal Injury) are not available for PAO gaffer László Bölöni.
Team News: PAOK
With a completely healthy squad to pick from, PAOK manager Pablo García doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this game.
Our feeling is that Panathinaikos will need things to go their way to register a score against this PAOK outfit who we reckon will emerge victorious.
We therefore see a hard-fought 0-1 winning score for PAOK at full-time.
Should be interesting.
