The other match in Group L concerns PAOK taking on BATE at the Stadio Toumbas as the betting tips continue on match day 6 in the Europa League.


PAOK will assume the role of party poopers and look to spoil BATE’s chances of making it through to the knockout rounds unless the hosts can rack up all three points here while scoring a few goals in the process.

The hosts have lost four of their five group matches so far in what has been a dismal campaign for the Greek side as they’ve fallen to defeats to Chelsea (home and away) as well as home and away losses to Videoton.

PAOK’s one success so far though came in a resounding 4-1 win away at tonight’s opponents BATE back on match day 2 and they’ll be hoping for more of the same again on Thursday night. The hosts have registered mixed results on home turf in the Europa League in recent times as they’ve won four, lost four and drawn once in their last nine matches at their Stadio Toumbas.

Forward Prijovic (8 goals) looks the main goal threat up front for PAOK.


BATE sit in second place ahead of this important final group match in Group L as they look to pip Hungarian club Videoton to the last remaining qualifying spot for the next phase of the competition.

Home and away wins over the aforementioned Videoton have been BATE’s only highlights during these group stages as they recorded a 2-0 win in Hungary and then repeated the same scoreline recently on match day 5 in Belarus.

However, in between times, BATE suffered three defeats on the trot with a heavy 4-1 loss at home to PAOK along with home and away defeats against Premier League side, Chelsea.

To make absolutely sure of their place in the knockout rounds, BATE must grab all three points here but having won just twice in their last 10 away matches, their progression hangs in the balance.

Betting Tips Verdict

PAOK sit bottom of Group L but are very capable of spoiling BATE’s ambitions here.
