Analysis, previews and value bets on Super League Greece

Both teams looking to end their negative streaks

Giannina and Panthrakikos come from consecutive negative results. Giannina have the excuse of a very difficult schedule where they faced all the teams that are expected to have a top finish this season but I must admit I did not expect them to concede so many goals. On the contrary, Panthrakikos, is struggling for points and they are a top favorite for relegation having no wins after 8 matches. The preview and betting picks:

Analysis: PAS Giannina – Panthrakikos

Giannina took an early lead (4’) in the last home match against Asteras Tripolis (1-2) but their opponent managed to turn everything around with two goals at 39’ (penalty kick) and 81’. The performance of Giannina was good (total attempts 10-8) but I feel Asteras Tripolis was more determined for the win that day. Coach Petrakis decided to rest four key players in the following Cup match against Iraklis (1-1 at home). For one more time his team conceded a goal although they took the lead (1-0 at 76’, 1-1 at 78’).

Banned: Berios (DEF/7)

Injured: Lila (MID/3/1 goal, key player)

Pantrakikos was in control of the last home match against Xanthi (total attempts 12-3 and one attempt at the bar at 91’) but they failed to get a win for one more time (0-0). Their opponent concentrated on defense and got a point they did not deserve. Coach Eleftheropoulos stated he is confident the positive results will come. Panthrakikos also had a midweek away match for the Cup against PAOK (2-0). Their defeat was fair and they were probably lucky the home team decided to rest many key players.

Banned: –

Injured: Tzanis (FWD/2, key player)

Betting Pick: The win of PAS Giannina @ 1.55

In case you have not noticed it, Giannina may have problems in defense but they have scored in every match until now having faced all the top teams of Super League. I have written many times in the past they have a very good coach and I really cannot see how Panthrakikos can avoid a new defeat.

The performances of the two teams until now make me believe the handicap win of Giannina (-1.5) @ 2.65 is highly probable and a score of Over 2.5 goals @ 2.40 should be on the way, with or without the help of Panthrakikos.
