Panionios Prediction – Can Panionios bounce back?

Following back-to-back defeats away from home at AEK Athens 5-0 and a 2-1 loss to Volos, Panionios will no doubt be relieved to be returning back to the more familiar surroundings of their Stadio Néas Smírnis for Thursday night’s clash against 2nd placed PAOK (at time of writing) where they’ll be keen to bounce back from these losses.

The hosts currently sit second from bottom in the Greek top flight and have picked up just 6 points from their opening 14 matches of the domestic season, thanks to both wins being recorded on home turf against Larissa and bottom club, Panaitolikos.

Prior to their two recent defeats, Panionios had put together a promising 4-match run without defeat in the Super League which included a 2-1 win away at Xanthi, the aforementioned win against Panaitolikos and draws with Aris and Olympiakos (both at home).

Panionios possess a home record that stands at 2-2-3 7/6 which isn’t too impressive but also isn’t the worst either; perhaps more importantly though, Panionios haven’t lost by a 2+ goal margin at home so far this season and this gives them a chance here.

PAOK Prediction – Can PAOK go top?

With Wednesday night’s action in the Super League being played beforehand, this may not be the case but as things stand, PAOK sit level on points with Super League leaders, Olympiakos in what has turned into a two-horse race for the domestic top flight title.

10 points separates 3rd placed AEK Athens and the two leading clubs in the Greek top flight before this midweek action, and PAOK still remain unbeaten so far this season, having collected 10 wins and 4 draws from their 14 matches played to date in this campaign.

PAOK have won 4 of their last 5 matches overall which includes wins over OFI Crete, Larissa, Xanthi and Panaitolikos, the latter being a 3-0 win away from home last Sunday, while their results away from home have also been solid this term as well.

An away record of 5-2-0 14/6 should be too good for Panionios in Thursday night’s clash but PAOK have won by a 2+goal margin on the road just once this season which was against the bottom club who have yet to register a win on home turf.


Key-Facts – Panionios vs PAOK

  • Panionios haven’t lost by a 2+ goal margin at home so far this season
  • PAOK have won by a 2+goal margin on the road just once this season
  • Panionios have lost by a 2+goal margin in just 1 of last 6 at home v PAOK/li>


Betting Tips Verdict

Panionios look to be a tougher proposition for PAOK who may well end up winning here but the margin should be closer.
