Athanasiou: “Panathinaikos’ goal is one of the first two places – That’s how they will win in Haifa”


For… game six and his great opportunity Panathinaikou to ensure on the one hand the “exclusion” of Maccabi Haifa, on the other hand to take a step to conquer one of the first two places in the group, he spoke of his “air” News Bulletin 247 Nikos Athanasiou.

Panathinaikos has made a great start, if it weren’t for the three points with Villarreal and the +3 from Maccabi Haifa, we wouldn’t be talking about a great opportunity now. As soon as this data exists in tomorrow’s match, we understand that we are talking about a six-point match. If he gets it, in my humble opinion, Panathinaikos finishes Maccabi, with the difference of six points and one game in Athens. The third place leads to the knockouts of the Conference League but Panathinaikos’ goal is, after the very big victory over Villarreal, one of the first two places. Even if they get the one point, Maccabi is far behind, the only bad result is the defeat, because it puts the Israeli team in the game again. As an image of both teams, Panathinaikos is in a good mood, while Maccabi is a little affected by Barak’s departure. Through ball circulation and high pressure, he will come in to dominate and take the game“, he said among other things.

The station’s reporter also referred to diametrically opposite image of the “greens” and their opponent tomorrow in terms of their performance in each first half of the games they have given so far.

At the same time, Athanasiou noted that Aitor does not have many chances to be in the 20 of Panathinaikos tomorrow, but also that he does not know if Vagiannidis is ready to start in the 11, unlike Sporar, he will be available.
