PAOK created a small sensation in the second round of Champions League qualifying last week! Opposed to FC Basel, eighth finalist of the previous edition, the Greeks have not done in the half measure: victorious 2-1 at home in the first leg and under the threat of a Swiss victory by a goal of away, they went looking for a convincing 3-0 success in Switzerland during the return match. So there are only 2 more steps to climb at the club of Thessaloniki to reach a phase of pools that he has almost never known, but it will take out the Spartak Moscow, second in the last Russian championship behind the Lokomotiv and him also tried to participate in its 4th LDC of the decade (2010, 2012, 2017)!
Our Bet Explained
In the previous round, PAOK had certainly imposed against Basel, but conceded a goal that could have been fatal at the end of the match (2-1 victory).
Spartak Moscow seems better armed this season with the Quincy Promes, Luiz Adriano, Ze Luis, Kombarov, Zobnin and the good course of the Russian selection at the World Cup. They will come to Greece to score!
5-1 on the whole of the two matches against Basel, the club of Thessalonica also has offensive arguments to make and will leave besides favorite for this match go! Russian nets should be shaking too.
On paper, it is the Spartak that is given a favorite to qualify but the Greeks have surprised their world in the previous round and the double confrontation could be much more indecisive than it seems.
Our prediction PAOK Thessaloniki Spartak Moscow
To imagine goals on either side between two close formations on paper is common sense. PAOK and Spartak can both qualify for the final round of the Champions League and the nets should be shaking on both sides!
Nice score of 1.82 for “both teams score”
