On September 11, as part of the first round of the Greek Super League, the PAOK – Larissa meeting will take place at the Tumba stadium in Thessaloniki. One of the contenders for victory in the championship opens the new season in the national championship with a match against a strong middle peasant. Will the favorite get three points or will the underdog give a serious fight?
PAOK , unlike all other Greek clubs, officially started the new season earlier. This is due to the fact that the team qualifies for the Champions League. In the second round, the team effortlessly dealt with Besiktas (3: 1), but it will only get harder further: in a few days, Benfica is ahead of PAOK, and if successful in the third round, the final meeting against Krasnodar.
In preparation for the season, the team played three friendly matches, in which they won over Volos (2: 0) and Panathinaikos (1: 0), as well as a draw in the game with Atromitos (0: 0) …
In the new season Larisa will be dangling in the middle of the standings, located not far from the relegation zone. Last season, the Cherry took ninth place, which generally suited the management.
The team also had three test meetings during the preseason. The results were for all tastes: they won against Trikala (1: 0), drew with Lamia (1: 1) and were defeated in the game against Aris (0: 1). As we can see, all the matches did not stand out for their performance. But today, the effectiveness is fading into the background, the result is much more important.
Last season, both meetings remained with PAOK (1: 0, 2: 1);
Larissa has not won or scored points in Thessaloniki since February 2007.

04/02/17 PAOK Larissa 20
02/01/17 Larissa PAOK 0: 2
10/26/16 PAOK Larissa 20
It is obvious that the guests will sit in a defensive position, set up a “bus” and will catch their counterpart on counterattacks. PAOK really does not like to play against such teams, it is not very comfortable for black-and-white to break into the defense with a minimum of space. Therefore, we expect to see a small number of goals scored.
Our forecast is total under (3) goals with odds of 1.70 from BC Leon.
