Brondby will face Panathinaikos in the second leg of the Europa League Play off. The Greeks have won the first leg with 3-0 after dominating all game, however their victory is rather circumstantial as Brondby played in 9 men after receiving 2 red cards, first in the 33rd minute. Brondby tried to limit the score defending most of the game but they made also a penalty and in the end received another goal. Frustrating match for an offensive team who is having a good start of the season in Denmark, being 1st with 4 wins and 2 draws, scoring 22 goals in 6 matches.


Brondby has defeated Scottish side Hibernian on penalties and then showed their strength against Herta Berlin managing to qualify at home after a stunning 3-1 (0-1 in the first leg) having all 3 goals scored in minute 52. That should be impressive. Last round in domestic league they have scored 7 goals in a win against Aarhus, even if their opponent was a weak one, they proved to have a tremendous offensive appetite. They have the Finnish striker Pukki in great form scoring 8 goals in 6 matches in the Superliga and also a hat-trick against Hertha Berlin.


Panathinaikos on the other hand will come in Denmark full of confidence after the first leg and I think it's quite logic that they will rather play defensive and trying to score on the counter. The same strategy worked just fine againt AIK giving them a double win with the Swedish side 3-0 on aggregate. They have good players up-front like Ibarbo, Berg, Wackaso and also the experienced midfielder Ledesma, the former Lazio player.


The Greeks have built a competitive team after a few struggling seasons due to the financial problems they had. It is likely to qualify here but even behind that comforting 3-0 advantage I don't think it will be easy as the Danish will fight until the end.


The championship in Greece has not started yet so the visitors may not have yet the best fitness and since I am expecting a nothing or all approach by the hosts I see them ahead of a tough game.


Scoring 3 against Hertha should keep the hopes alive for the hosts today and I see them score at least 2 goals. It will be hard to qualify but I trust them to make a good game. I see value in Brondby -1 AH.
