With the foot stuck to the “gas”, the preparation of Panathinaikos is completed today in view of tomorrow’s match (03/01) with the opponent PAS Ioannina in Leoforos in the framework of the 16th game of the Stoiximan Super League.
The “greens” have been training hard since the first day of his arrival Fatih Terimwith the Turkish coach betting a lot on the psychology of the players in order for them to be ready for battle in every match with the aim of winning the title.
However, the experienced coach of the “clover” was unlucky, seeing in the first training session of the new year, two useful “tools” of the team were injured. The reason, of course, is Sebastian Palacios, who left New Year’s training with a sprained left leg and will be sidelined for around three weeks.
This means that the Argentine will not attend his two matches Betsson Cup with Olympiakos (10-17/1), nor in the interim derby with AEK (14/1) for the Stoiximan Super League. In addition to these games, the 31-year-old will miss matches with PAS Ioannina (03/01), Panaitolikos (07/01), while he will have a “road race” to catch up with Asteras Tripoli (21/1) and PAOK (28/1).
In addition to Palasios, knockout for the match with Ioannina has also been set Bart Schenkefeld as he suffered an ankle injury. At least the good news is about him Adam Cherin and Filip Djuricic who, after the minor problems they faced, returned to normal rhythms and are now ready for the “hot” January of Panathinaikos.
With these data, Mr Fatih Terim he is likely to line up with Brignoli in goal and Vagiannidis, Jedvai, Arao and Huancar in defence. Ruben with Vilena and Bernard will be in the center, while Aitor, Mancini, Ioannidis also have serious chances for the attack.
