Recommended Posts

The new Greek Super League season starts this weekend. PAOK come into this season as the reigning champions. Can Olympiakos go one step better and secure the title this year? Or will it be a dark horse such as AEK Athens, Atromitos, or Aris Thessaloniki? If you're thinking of betting on the opening weekend of action in Greece then let us know your predictions here! :ok

In Lamia the climate is not ideal, it has had many changes since last season and it will definitely take some time to get ready. Panathinaikos showed good evidence in the friendly and is rightly a favorite for the win. I expect Panathinaikos to be serious and conscious in the field and get the points of victory

Atromitos vs Larisa

It's finally here! The new Greek Super League season. Every team full of optimism and a range of fixtures that are too close to call. My focus this week is between potential title contenders Atromitos and mid-table mediocrity Larisa in a 4:45pm BST kick-off at the Peristeri Stadium in Athens this Sunday afternoon. Who will start their season with a win or will both sides cancel each other out?

Atromitos have made steady progress over the last few years and it resulted in them finishing in a respectable 4th place last season. Unfortunately, their run in the Europa League ended at the second hurdle. A convincing 5-3 aggregate win over Slovakian side DAC Dunajska Streda in the 2nd Qualifying Round was followed up by a disappointing 2-0 aggregate loss to Polish club Legia Warsaw in the 3rd Qualifying Round. Still, Giannis Anastasiou's side have tasted European competition once again and it's become a fairly regular occurrence over recent years. The hope is to go one better than the Europa League and finally break into the Champions League qualification spots.

Larisa will be a name familiar to British football fans with the club having been previously managed by Chris Coleman before he took on the Wales national team job. There has been a revolving door of managers over the past couple of seasons with seven managers taking the role since the start of the 2017/18 season. Michalis Grigoriou is the latest man at the helm and the ownership hierarchy will be wanting a better finish than their 10th place position last season.

Both of these teams have a philosophy based on a strong defence. Atromitos were impressive at the back at home last season and Larisa were no mugs on the road. I can see this being a war of attrition. I don't think there'll be much goal mouth action and it could well be a single goal that decides it. If that's the case then I have to back the home side to get that decisive goal to win the game.

Although it is still a start in AEK there is a need for a winning result today, because otherwise the club may have problems. Xanthi will be on the defensive line, so it is very likely that the match will be judged in the details, the few goals are significant.

PAOK wants to unleash the Panetolikos easily and quickly, as on Thursday it has to do with an overthrow. He is in good shape, unlike his opponent, who has not yet shown any samples. I'll bet on a few goals
