PAS Giannina vs Levadiakos
Competition: Greece Super League
Date: 24 February 2018
Kick-off: 14:00 CET
Last weekend I believed in PAS Giannina’s win at Platanias, that was one of my tips (2.87), but more than that, I expected them to score more than once, suggesting their “over 1.5” (3.40), adding that Pedro Conde alone could score twice. That’s exactly what happened, as the Spaniard sent the ball in twice in the first five minutes of the second half. The game was rather even in the first 45 minutes, but PAS were absolutely dominant in the second half, not just scoring three times (Berios added the cherry on top in the 86th minute), but allowing Platanias just one chance in the entire second half, and that, only in the 89th minute, with the score at 3-0. That was PAS’ third win in their last four Super League matches. They lost to PAOK, who, by the way, are the team reported to be interested in signing Pedro Conde in June. The Giannina side are 7th in the table, finally approaching the positions their roster… corresponds to. When they were 11th, 12th, I kept writing that their roster is much better than that.
Levadiakos were considered – by betting companies – favourites to beat Panetolikos last weekend at home, but I had little doubt to suggest the visitors’ win (3.10), and Levadiakos lost indeed, paying mostly for their goalkeeper’s clumsy attempts to stop Panetolikos players on two occasions. Epassy Mboka committed a penalty in the 36th minute, which came with a yellow card, same thing happened in the 55th minute, so Levadiakos not only found themselves 2-1 down, but also had to play with 10 players for more than half an hour. All in all, I have to admit, the Livadia side did much better than what I expected. They had a goal annulled wrongly early in the game (there was no offside), they scored, they had two free-kick shots on the post, and deep down they deserved a point last weekend.
