Coach vs. former player
I am under the impression that Match Day 11 of Super League will have some unexpected results this weekend. The average odds I see in four of the eight matches tell me that the bookmakers are confused and underestimate important background information. Things are not always as easy (or hard) as the odds show but we will see all of that in the previews published later on.
The match that stands out is the battle of Panathinaikos against PAOK at OAKA on Sunday. Mr. Rocha was assigned the difficult task of getting the Greens out of their misery. His first match will be against Mr. Donis, a former player of Panathinaikos, who was part of the squad that gave Rocha and the club one of the most amazing wins in their history (the away win against Ajax, 1995-96). Will Mr. Donis manage to get a positive result before the rivalry battle against Olympiakos at Toumba? This is a match we must watch!
