Kick-off at 17:55 UK/ 18:55 CET

PAOK was surprised by the Hungarian side in the reverse fixture and this time the former Greek champions will be looking to take revenge for that home loss.

The hosts have been undefeated in 5 of their recent matches across all venues. There were 4 wins included in that run and 3 games had a score of over 2.5 goals in total.

The team who were named as Videoton, prior to this season are having a good domestic season in the Hungarian League also. They are 3rd at present with 6 wins in 12 games and tend to draw more games.

The reverse fixture at Greece was nothing short of a shocker. The team from Hungary took a 2 goal lead in the first half and successfully defended it till the final whistle. PAOK came out all guns blazing in the second half but the opposition defense stood strong but conceded a lot of fouls in the process which earned them 5 yellow cards as well.

The visitors are 2nd in the table below Chelsea who has already guaranteed a playoff spot. The team from Greece has never lost a game in the Greek Superleague and are on top of the table too.

Manager Răzvan Lucescu will have to assemble his best players to avoid yet another defeat against this opponents. His side has won 4 and lost 1 of their last 6 overall matches and are on a 10 game unbeaten streak on the road, which includes 7 wins also.

With three sides on equal points, this match is crucial to decide who goes to the playoffs along with Chelsea from Group L.
