Lamia vs Panathinaikos by Demogorgon
●Sold Out expected in this match, full capacity at 4.500 though but still there is an edge for the hosts. Just 400 tickets allowed to the
● No H2H games between those two teams for the Top Division
LAMIA is a newly promoted team, which has one of the weakest rosters in the league, but still they managed to do quite well so far, gathering 7 points in their first 7 league games. They have 1 win (1-0) Panionios and 2 loses at home but both against top tier teams AEK (0-1) and Olympiacos (0-1) which is far from bad for a team of their caliber. The results though are rather flattering as they have several issues in their defense and they allow an average of 13 chances (shots on goal) to their opponents so far but they are rather lucky to keep their opponents low.
The difference between them and Panathinaikos is huge but due to absences and several other reasons, the gap is way smaller in this match. Still it wont be easy for the hosts to steal points here.
●They will miss important DM Anastasopoulos today, which adds to their already poor defensive efficiency.
PANATHIANIKOS is one of the biggest clubs in Greece but things have not been good for them for the past 3 seasons, only this time things got out of control. There are great financlial problems, (already sold their two top players during summer tranfer market and there are more to come). Yet they have one of the best rosters in the league and a huge fan base which supports them and better days are expected. In any given day, they would be considered as hot favorites at odds of 1,3 max in this game but since they have plenty of absences the bookies adjusted the odds properly. Good news is taht they scored a late winning goal in their last match (playing with 9) and it was a morale boost and momentum shifting result.
●They will miss AM luciano (4-0), ex-Boca striker Chavez (5-1), AM Altman (6/1), important DC Moledo (4/0), DM Sylla (4/0)
There is adequate cover for their absences, especially since we talk about a very weak opponent, so there is still value picking the visitors to celebrate another tough win today.
The thing is that Panathinaikos is a well worked team, they have good individuals for the current level and they are very efficient defensively. In this match they will look to defend well and hit with pace on counters. Considering the fact that the hosts are extremely poor in defense, i expect the visitors to have plenty of goal scoring opportunities and since they only have one striker available, Molins, who is going to play full 90' minutes, i find a lot of value at those huge odds of him scoring his second league goal today!
Of course i suggest picking Panathinaikos to win in live betting..
