PAOK and Mars cross swords in Toumba (20:00, NovasportsPrime, News Bulletin 247, sport-fm.gr) as part of the 7th matchday of the Stoiximan Super League playoffs.
THE “bi-head of the north” is called upon to react after the latest results and especially after the heavy 4-0 defeat by AEK at the OPAP Arena, where he showed a bad face, making his worst appearance in this year’s championship. Lucescu’s team needs the victory more, since they are fighting with Olympiakos for the 3rd place, from which they are at -3 at the moment, while of course, a match against this opponent is never indifferent for PAOK.
THE Romanian technician will not have Douglas Augusto available as he has been ruled out after his recent injury, while Ingason is expected to be out (contusion). Kargas, who was expelled with AEK and at the same time it was decided to be punished by relegation to the B’ Team, has no right to participate. Ricardo and Kurtic will obviously be absent, Koulierakis and Lyratzis are back.
THE Mars achieved to a large extent with the last results the goal with which he entered the playoffs. That is, to capture the 5th place leading in Europe, as well as with the victories over Volos (0-3) and Olympiakos (2-1), in combination with the defeats of Volos by the “yellows” (0-3) and the Panathinaikos (0-2), after those from AEK (0-1) and PAOK (4-2), was at +7 from the Magnesia team. With a good result, he can also formally seal the top five.
The “yellow” they should not get carried away by the fact that they do not need the win as much as the home team and invest in the strong motivation that exists regardless of the conditions in such derbies. As far as the leave is concerned… At his disposal All of Terzi is Rupp, while on the other hand he cannot count on Odubajo, Brambetz and Manu Garcia.
