PAS Giannina vs Asteras Tripolis
Competition: Greece Super League
Date: 14 April 2019
Kick-off: 18:00 CET
What a game in Giannina… A look at the table gives you a perfect idea what is at stake here; 13th-placed PAS are hosting 12th-placed Asteras Tripolis, with a two-point gap between the two teams. Giannina know they will not get a better chance than this to leapfrog Asteras in the table. Whoever finishes 13th, will have to go through playoffs to avoid relegation. Whoever finishes 12th, will play Super League football next season for sure. Keep in mind, there are more… horses in this race, it’s not a PAS vs Asteras thing exclusively; it is not an exaggeration to write that half a dozen teams will be watching the result of this match. Last weekend, Giannina lost 1-0 at OFI, which is partly why this game is SO crucial for them.
Asteras Tripolis still cannot believe they failed to beat Levadiakos last weekend… They were by far the better team on the pitch, created several chances, some big, but missed them all, with Levadiakos’ goalkeeper playing his… game of the season. Asteras wasted two golden points, but their situation is not… dramatic – yet. They have a two-point advantage over PAS, and three over 14th-placed OFI, meaning that if they draw in Giannina, they will spend at least another week above the relegation line. Mind you, next weekend they have another potential… final waiting for them, in Crete, against OFI, then they’ll face PAOK in a Cup semifinal, and last, they will host Panionios, hoping that by then they will have secured their stay in the Super League.
