PAOK vs Vidi
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 25 October 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Toumbas (Thessaloniki).
PAOK showed strength in the 1-4 drubbing of BATE in the second round. They are looking to capitalize on this victory win another three-pointer on Thursday evening against Hungarian champions Mol Vidi. A potential victory would catapult the Greek outfit to the second place given BATE have a tough trip to Stamford Bridge to make in this round.
The visit to Thessaloniki will, on the other side, likely be the last chance for the Hungarian side to keep the hopes of the knockout stage alive. They lost both games so far and are yet to find the back of the net in this term of Europa League. Nevertheless, we have to mention Mol Vidi did manage to offer a strong resistance last time out when they only lost 1-0 to Chelsea away at Stamford Bridge. Such showing will certainly affect team’s confidence ahead of the tough trip to Greece.

This will be the first ever head to head encounter between PAOK and Vidi.
PAOK vs Vidi: Prediction
PAOK are really enjoying a stellar form at the start of the season. They have an impeccable record with seven wins in seven league games and they will come into this in the highest of spirits after a demolishing 1-4 victory over BATE at Borisov Arena.
The Romanian manager Razvan Lucescu has a deadly attacking line-up with the likes of Aleksandar Prijovic, Leo Jaba and Dimitris Pelkas who were all on target in the mentioned thumping of Belarusian champions.
Prijovic continued to shine after the international break as his brace created a comeback victory away at Aris in a big Thessaloniki derby on Sunday.
Mol Vidi rebounded from a tough 3-0 loss to MTK by beating recently-promoted Szombathelyi Haladas 0-2 on the road at the weekend. They are the third-placed team in Super League after 10 rounds.
We have to fancy PAOK who are expected to be in control from the very go here.
