PAS Giannina vs Levadiakos
Competition: Greece Super League
Date: 25 November 2018
Kick-off: 16:15 CET
PAS Giannina were drawing without goals at AEL Larissa two weeks ago, until left-back Mite Cikarski got sent-off, early in the second half. In less than two minutes, PAS conceded, and AEL’s second goal in the 76th minute pushed the game beyond their reach. It was their fifth defeat in their last six games (they have a draw as well). On seven points, they are just 14th(!) in the table. Good news for coach Giannis Petrakis is that formerly injured winger Giannis Mystakidis and striker Stefanos Athanasiadis are ok, available to play (if chosen). On another note, PAS are planning their winter transfer window moves, and according to reports they are willing to bring in three more new players, realizing that most of their summer moves didn’t have the positive impact they were hoping for.
Serbian central midfielder Marko Stanojević had scored super few goals the last three years, no goal for Levadiakos in his first three appearances (no surprise), but… somehow, he netted twice against OFI two weeks ago, giving his team a 2-1 victory. It was Levadiakos’ just second win in 10 matches, enough to push them above the relegation line. They are on seven points, as many as OFI and PAS Giannina, but with a better goal difference. According to reports, Italian coach Giuseppe Sannino was left unimpressed by defensive midfielder Pavlos Mitropoulos two weeks ago, and is willing to give Suleiman Omo a spot in the starting lineup. The Nigerian midfielder hasn’t started a game for some time now.

PAS Giannina vs Levadiakos: Head to head Stats
Just one win for PAS, two for Levadiakos, and two draws, in the last five games between these two in Giannina.
PAS Giannina vs Levadiakos: Prediction
I wouldn’t bet on this game. PAS have been very poor since the start of the season, and have earned just one point from their last two home matches, against… average rivals. On the other hand, Levadiakos have lost all five away games thus far, conceding usually two or three goals. I find it difficult to trust PAS to win the game, despite hosting such a weak (away from home) rival.
PAS Giannina vs Levadiakos: Betting Tips
If I absolutely had to bet on something in this game, I would go for PAS Giannina’s win, at 1.90, but not without many reservations.
