The Playoffs of the Super League are finally over and I must say that I was more optimistic that I should have been for great matches. The facts that nobody wanted the fourth place and that Panathinaikos had already lost their 4pts advantage after the end of the third match day made me sure that we would witness great matches with many goals. Unfortunately, I was so wrong. In the twelve matches of the playoffs we had 11 under and only two over 2,5 goals and in only 3 of them both teams scored. I am sure that most of the players were tired is this be an excuse? Anyway, the playoffs are history and we will hope to see better things next season.
- PAOK – Atromitos 0-1 (Fytanidis 12’)
- Panathinaikos – AEK 1-0 (Toche 62’)
PAOK – Atromitos
PAOK was unfortunate to see Fytanidis score again (he had scored in the overtime in the Cup match when Atromitos won PAOK in Toumba) in this important match for both teams. Practically the home team did nothing in the first half.
When the second half started, the home team showed up determined to avoid the early stages of Europa League. Atromitos’ players were defending massively and PAOK was unlucky enough to have three great chances (Athanassiadis 50, 72, – Stafylidis 76’) stopped by the goalposts.
Panathinaikos – AEK
The home team seemed to in control of the match in the start; they had a few chances, but nothing really dangerous. The best moment of the first half came from AEK at 16’ when Lyberopoulos scored but the goal was wrongly canceled by the linesmen as an offside.
The first good moment of the second half also belongs to AEK with a strong shot by Carlos that was saved by Karnezis. Panathinaikos managed to score at 62’ with Toche after a pass by Quincy. AEK had to press more and managed to be in control for the rest of the match. It was obvious that Panathinaikos’ players were avoiding any risks by defending patiently and trying to score again in a counter attack.
