Veroia vs Panionios by Isaiah
Veroia suffered a home defeat to the Greek Super League first game against Champions of Olympiakos, in a game that they had a very good appearance in general and lost the game in the minor details. The debut of the season was very good for the newly promoted Veroia, and they showed lot of positive actions, leaving promises for their future on the division. In Veroia they have lot of complains from the referees, as a regular goal was cancelled as offside.
However, the league continues and tonight they face Panionios at home again, and this time they want only the victory. New coach Chavos and his footballers are hopeful for a victory against Panionios, with their morale at high levels after the very good game they had against Olympiakos. Swiss Midfielder Damian Bellon served his punishment and returns to the main eleven, while defenders Cyril Kali, Santos Bezerra and defensive midfielder Serge Die are not ready yet.

Panionios won their first fixture to the league at home, after an episodic game against Aris with a score of 1-0, but finished the game with nine players, and there has been eight minutes of injury time.
Although they had serious problems to survive during summer after not getting license to participate to the league, the climate is good for their team after this victory. They played against Aris only with Greeks to their line up, most of them youngsters, but they managed to win this one. Anyway, there is lot of problems for them tonight. Main defender Miltos Kalaitzidis, main striker Leonidas Kampantais, and main defender Vasilis Lambropoulos are all out punished, while main midfielder Dejan Milovanovic, main left-back Rokas, main defender Suleiman Omo and main goalkeeper Giannis Siderakis left out of the squad again.
Both teams showed good in the league's premiere, but Veroia have the slight advantage against a Panionios side that will play defensively and will look counterattacks, with lot of youngsters to their squad, and lot of important players out.
