PAOK vs Slovan Liberec
Date: Thursday 8th December, 2016
Kick-off: 16:00 UK
Venue: Stadio Toumbas, Thessaloniki.
PAOK earned the great opportunity to stay in the contest for the top two positions in the group C after a brilliant performance and a 2-3 win over Fiorentina at Artemio Franchi in the last round of the competition. Even though the team led by the Serbian manager Vladimir Ivic is far from the ideal form in Greek Super League where PAOK lost three matches in a row to drop down to 11th position after 10 rounds.
They Greek side are considered to be heavy favorites to take three points in the last match of Europa League’s group stage. And are most likely catch the much wanted second position in the group (in case of Fiorentina’s win or draw in Baku). The last weekend saw PAOK losing to Panathinaikos with 1-0 away from home.
Slovan Liberec are not enjoying the best season in Czech Liga either, since the team is currently sitting at the 13th position. Slovan are winless in last six league matches losing ach of the last three games on road. They could potentially catch the second position with a victory of two or more goals difference and with Fiorentina’s win against Qarabag, which is almost impossible scenario.
