AEK Athens FC vs PAOK Prediction & Betting tips
With AEK Athens against the dethroned champion PAOK Saloniki, the showdown in the Super League increases for second place. This provides the chance to participate in the upcoming qualification for the Champions League. The guests arrive with a broad chest, as last weekend the first defeat of the season was inflicted on the new title holder Olympiakos Piraeus.
A doubly sweet success, because it not only brought important points in the mentioned fight for the runner-up title, but also prevented the trick of a season without bankruptcy for the kickers from the port city. A performance that PAOK still managed in the master season.
The home side once again had a clear 3-1 win in the recent game against defensive specialists Panathinaikos, expanding their series of victories to four games. For the upcoming duel in the Olympic Stadium in the capital, the tip on passable odds includes goals on both sides.
The double-headed eagles struck three times in the last away game against Panathinaikos. A strong performance because the opponent normally nailed the box efficiently. The win was extremely important because it kept the gap on PAOK.
Now there are still three points, with a slightly better goal difference. The route on the penultimate matchday is therefore clear: the longed-for second place could be conquered with a threesome. The recent appearances of the offensive are encouraging: For four games this has been like hungry for goals against Panathinaikos: At least two goals have always been scored.
An important guarantee for the offensive success is the Portuguese Nelson Oliveira. The former player from Reading or Swansea is unstoppable these days: The 28-year-old has been scoring continuously for three rounds, even winning a double in the derby against Aris.
PAOK did it! On the 34th matchday, the epic series of the new master ended. The kickers from Thessaloniki won 1-0, causing the new title holder to suffer a defeat for the first time this season.
However, the threesome was happy. The decisive goal was scored in the last minute of regular time, although not entirely undeserved, since the opponent surprisingly showed little will to win in a match with a lot of prestige.
The black and white, on the other hand, confirmed their away strength – no defeat in six rounds. Coach Abel Ferreira can mainly rely on his attack department in the guest appearances: together with the new champion Piraeus, she has the strongest record in the Greek House of Lords abroad.
Basically, the Apsromavri have been vulnerable since the restart: In the eight league games, only three wins and in the meantime a defeat in the semi-finals was conceded in the home cup.
