by

Aris and PAOK will face each other tonight (19/3, 19:00) at “Kleanthis Vikelidis”, in the first major derby of the playoffs for this year’s Stoiximan Super League!

The match will be broadcast on TV by Novasports Prime, on the radio by News Bulletin 247 and… online by sport-fm.gr!

The host Mars comes to tonight’s derby being in 5th place in the standings with 40 points, while last week it prevailed 3-1 against PAS Ioannina, for the last game of the regular season of the championship.

With 12 wins, 4 draws and 10 losses so far this season, they are -14 against tonight’s opponent and effectively enter the playoffs to stay above Volos and grab the last European ticket, while they have won three of their last four games.

As far as the competitions are concerned, Tolis Terzis will not have the injured at his disposal Rs and Manu Garcia, while Hairovics, Marmaridis, Sgouros, Panagidis, Hatziioannou, Tanoulis and Karakasidis were also left out of the mission. Compared to the previous game, Odubajo and Etembo are back in the top 20.

The Mars Mission: Cuesta, Ciabanis, Fabiano, Brumbetz, Iturbe, Mateo Garcia, Darinda, Camara, Palma, Camacho, Doukoure, Gray, Piersman, Dabo, Mazikou, Odubajo, Etembo, Nkulu, Embakata, Christodoulopoulos.

On the other hand, Mr PAOK will enter tonight’s matchup wanting to start the playoffs mini-championship off on the right foot and keep his hopes of winning the title alive.

The “Two-Headed of the North” comes to the derby “running” 21 game unbeaten streak in the league and Cup, since he has also lost that derby with AEK at the “OPAP Arena” since the end of last October.

Last week he left the home of Volos with the double, easier than the final 1-0 shows, showing that he remains in very good playing condition in view of the highly demanding continuation.

In the competition, Rasvan Lucescu did not announce his mission, informing that he will take all the available footballers with him to “Macedonia Pallas”. Data will be left out Nasbergwhile his participation Ingason will be decided at the last minute. In case he does not succeed, Koulierakis and Kargas will be the duo in the center of the defense for PAOK. Lyrantis and Kurtic remain out.

In the two Derbies of Thessaloniki for this season, the two teams stayed at 0-0 for the first round at “Vikelidis”, while PAOK celebrated the victory with 1-0 in Toumba, thanks to Ingason’s goal.
