OFI Crete vs Panionios by Tullamore
OFI has made some interesting additions to the squad. Zoro Kpolo, Luciano Galleti (former Olympiacos player is back in action after 4 years) and others, who seem ready to fight for their survival. On the other hand, Panionios will really have problems during the season. The team has many weaknesses, that start from the goalkeeper till the offensive line. The board didn't manage to attract any reliable players except for Mitropoulos (had a descent last season with Panaitolikos and later with AEK) and the future seems dark for Neosmyrniotes.
However this is the first game that "counts" for both teams and as long as we are at the early moments of the season, the teams are not expected to have developed any high level of chemistry. Home advantage is a thing to mention though. Panionios is an awful team on the road and this season won't differ from the previous one.
I think that OFI will find a way to score at least a goal, but i am not sure if the visitors will do the same. The biggest reason i am backing the home side is the fact that they seem to be more ready than their opponents, plus the feeling i have that Panionios will barely avoid the relegation this time. The price is good enough so i am taking it.
