Atromitos vs Panetolikos
Competition: Greece Super League
Date: 12 January 2019
Kick-off: 18:00 CET
If for some reason you are following Polish football, you already know that Wisla Krakow are in serious trouble, very close to getting relegated to the fifth division. Several players left the club these last weeks, central midfielder Dawid Kort is one of those, and Atromitos is his new club. Very good choice by the 23-year-old, very good move by Atromitos as well, who, in Kort, find yet another reliable player for their midfield. Midweek, the Peristeri side threw a party at Apollon Smyrnis, won 0-3 in the first leg of their Greece Cup round of 16 tie, and have pretty much already qualified for the quarterfinals. Efthymis Koulouris scored all three goals, continuing with his incredible record this season. Be reminded, he is the Super League’s leading scorer, having sent the ball in 11 times. Atromitos are third in the table, on 28 points, 10 behind leaders PAOK, and two behind second-placed Olympiakos.
Panetolikos won three of their last four Super League games in 2018, and the one they lost, was a 2-1 at Olympiakos. That 0-0 with OF Ierapetra though, in the Cup, that left them out of the competition’s last 16, dampened their spirits. Only three Super League teams failed to make it to the last 16, and the Agrinio side were among them, not something to… be proud of. These last days, players came and left, players got sold and signed, so it may take them a couple of weeks to… get back on track. Panetolikos are 6th in the table, on 21 points, and at least one of their players, their regular goalkeeper, feels they have what it takes to finish in the top five and play in the Europa League qualifiers next season.
