I believe that Rovaniemi has big chances to score here for sure cause they prooved that they are net superior to last place and even other participant Honka, in finnish premier league. Not even Mariehamn couldn't stand a chance, and in my opinion Mariehamn is one of the biggest suprises and better prepared teams in Veikausliga. They drew HJK, won ex champions Inter Turku with no problems, drew MyPa and Jaro. This is only going for the finnish team, meanwhile Tripolis drew Pribram (czech 12th team) and los Dresden with 1-0. The only suprise for Tripolis was when they've beaten PAOK in super league playoffs but the championship playoffs were already settled (1st to CL and rest 3 to EL), it was well known that Tripolis couldn't stand a chance in CL. Not even PAOK reached 1st place and remained on 2nd with 10 points..and now remains the question about Panathinaikos team and all full-team changes since last 2 years, how did they managed to go for CL with those bad results in championship? PAOK was a better comrade for Olympiakos in my opinion. No injuries or suspenions but maybe 2 changes in defence cause Lluy and Panteliadis were booked.
Probable Asteras: Bantis, Lluy-Kiriakopolous, Goian, Sankare, Panteliadis-Kourmpelis, Usero, Kourbelis, Rolle, Bakasetas-Badibanga, Barrales, De Blasis, Zisopoulous.
RoPS probable: Sahlgren, Saxman, Obilor, Lahdemaki, Majava, Makitalo, Gay, Okkonen, Nyassi- Mbachu, Kokko-Lahtinen, Otaru.
