Struggle for three in PAOK, Baba knocked out for the first match with Hearts

In a triumphant way qualified for the playoffs of the Europa Conference League o PAOKwho prevailed with 3-0 of Hajduk Split in Tuba.

But in the “Two-Headed North” there is no room for celebrations, as the difficult premiere in the league with Asteras Tripolis is coming next Sunday, in Thessaloniki.

Apart from that, Razvan Lucescu saw two of his players go off with injury problems and a problem arises, not only for the upcoming match against Arkady but also for the first leg with Hearts which he will face in the next phase of the third UEFA competition.

Specifically, Mr Felipe Soares, ten minutes after entering the game, had to leave the field on a stretcher, and the Romanian coach replaced him with Ozdoev. The first estimates for the Portuguese speak of a quadriceps problem and will need to undergo teststo determine the exact extent of his injury.

In 78′, there was also a problem with Ali Samata, as the Tanzanian forward suffered some cramping that forced him out of the game, with Brandon Thomas coming on in his place. The doctors, however, were reassuring for the international striker.

After the end of the match against Hajduk, there was information that there is strong concern for Haris Tsingaras as well! The Greek midfielder came off in the 61st minute of the match, after being replaced by Filipe Soares, and there were even fears of a broken rib, and he is also expected to undergo tests.

Ahead of the first leg against Hearts on August 24, in Edinburgh, Lucescu cannot count on Baba Rahman, who was yellowed by Sacha Stegemann and, having completed three yellow cards, will miss this particular PAOK clash and he is available for the second leg on 31/8 in Toumba.
