Team News: PAS Giannina
It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just a single fitness concern for the PAS Giannina boss Iraxlis Metaxas to contend with from an otherwise fully-primed set of players. Pedro Conde (Tear in the abductor muscle) won’t play.
Team News: PAOK
PAOK boss Răzvan Lucescu has to currently contend with reduced team options. Vieirinha (Unknown Injury), Omar El Kaddouri (Ankle Injury), Léo Jabá (Shoulder Injury) and Giannis Michailidis (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not able to play.
