Thanks to a fully healthy squad to pick from, the PAS Giannina boss Iraxlis Metaxas does not have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match.
It looks to us that Panathinaikos will probably be able to create a high number of chances and successful shots on target.
In contrast, PAS Giannina won’t find it easy to break down their defence but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be pulling one back during this clash, too.
Therefore, we are anticipating a fairly comfortable 3-1 winning margin for Panathinaikos when the full-time whistle blows.
