PRE-MATCH ANALYSIS

Three participants of the Champions League’s group stage are already known. Tonight another three pairs of teams will enter on the ground to define the strongest ones. In one of them two vice-champions will meet each other at Toumba Stadium in Thessaloniki. The locally based PAOK will face Benfica. The first leg ended 1:1 after late PAOK goal. Will these teams repeat that result in the rematch?

PAOK won the Greek silver having shifted the national giant Olympiakos on the third place. The Black and Whites earned sixty-four points after thirty games (twenty-one wins, four draws and five losses, 59 goals for and 19 goals against). The champion AEK had a six-point gap over them.

This year the Two-headed Eagle beat Asteras Tripolis 1:0 in the opening match. The Greek side reached the final round of the Champions League’s qualifiers by eliminating the Swiss runners-up Basel (5:1 on an aggregate) and Russian bronze medalist Spartak (3:2 on an aggregate).

Last year Benfica ended its champion way by losing to Porto. The Eagles earned eighty-one points after thirty-four games (twenty-five wins, six draws and three defeats, 80 goals for and 22 goals against). Actually they played three games in Primeira-2018/19 and sit on the third rank after two wins and a draw. Last Saturday the derby of Lisbon ended with a scoring draw 1:1.

The Portuguese vice-champion has eliminated Fenerbahce from the previous stage by winning at home and drawing at away.

Last week Benfica’s Pizzi has scored penalty after Fernandes felled. Warda has fired PAOK leveler after Varela has hit bar.

PAOK has no sidelined people. From Benfica three footballers will not play tonight due to the injuries (Castillo, Ebuehi, Krovinovic).

The home side has never reached the group stage. The away side is eyeing the ninth straight group stage. We expect an equal battle in the second leg. We believe, the attack will be the first priority for both rivals. Earlier they demonstrated their offensive abilities. We predict the same scenario in Thessaloniki and recommend to bet on both teams to score with an attractive coefficient of 1.98.
