Levadiakos vs PAOK (By: Miyagi)
Levadiakos wasted a huge chance to get their first league win, after more than a month, against Panionios where they conceded a late goal (1-1, 95') and their morale took another major blow. Levadiakos, with the second-worst record in the league, is in relegation zone 6 points below the 'safe-zone' and they are currently under heavy pressure.
Important FW Sawadogo (susp.) and DM Omo (13/0) will miss this one.
PAOK comes from a heavy loss to BATE (1-3) at home in what was a very important match for them to avoid elimination from the EL. Things got pretty ugly after that loss, which was their 4th straight in EL, and there is huge disappointment among the fans with coach Lucescu being under pressure at the moment. Anything but a win today will make things a lot worse for PAOK at the same time that the heat is on, with Olympiacos in the second place just 5 points behind them.
PAOK will miss their captain Vierinha and important AM Pelkas.
Levadiakos has the second worst offensive record with 9 goals in 13 games. PAOK has the best defense of the league with 5 goals allowed in 13 games.
There is no room for mistakes for PAOK, as they want to sweeten the pill for their fans today, visiting one of the worst teams in the league. PAOK should get the win today, one way or the other, but the odds are too low. A good alternative is Prijovic, PAOK's top scorer with 8 goals in the league, to score the first goal today (or anytime @2.00 odds). In the last 10 games that Prijovic's scored, he did score the first goal for his team and considering the fact that PAOK get little to no help scoring-wise form the supporting cast and also the fact that Levadiakos will have a very hard time scoring a goal today, this is a calculated risk worth to be taken.
