Panathinaikos: Reinforced with Maccabi Haifa


To Panathinaikos they have already left behind the 2-2 draw against PAOK and everyone’s attention is turning to… Europe. On Thursday, the “greens” face in Israel the Maccabi Haifa (22:00) for the second matchday of the Europa League groups and with a positive result they will make a jump for qualification to the next phase or… even the third one that leads to the Conference League.

THE Ivan Jovanovich looks like he’ll have some extra options at his disposal. THE George Vagiannidis he will definitely be a member of the team and is not excluded from the lineup, even though he has been out of action for several weeks. The young right-back is vying for the position from Yannis Kotsiraswho has shouldered the full weight of the position during the talented ace’s absence.

Everything indicates that he will also be available Andraz Sporar, with a more likely scenario that he will come from the bench since yesterday he also increased his pace in training but he is not at 100%. Given that the Alexander Geremegev is off the European list, o Fotis Ioannidis is the undisputed favorite to be a starter, while as a solution from the bench the youngster can also be included in the mission Bilalif Sporar is deemed unprepared.

For sure the injured Aitor, Magnusson and Palmer Brown will be absent. The first alternative solution in the stoppers, behind the main Jedvai and Schenkefeld, will be Blacksmith who will be included in the mission anyway so that there is a sufficient number of Greeks.

It is reminded that he is off the European list, except for him Geremegev, Verbich, Zeka and Kleinheisler.
