Skoda Xanthi (-0.5 A.H) vs. Panthrakikos - Preview

 This is a derby normally between two teams that are located in near by cities but I think they will follow completely different routes the current season. Skoda Xanthi should probably finish somewhere in the top middle of the table like they did last season when they finish 7th and took a European ticket since the two teams above them (PAS Giannina and Panathinaikos) couldn’t be granted a licence to participate in European Competitions. So exhibit A: Skoda Xanthi is healthy financially not owing money to every player or coach that has been a member of the team in the past few years. They have money but not that they spend that much, it is just that they recruit young talents that later sell them for a much higher price. This season they started preparing quite early, have played already 2 rounds in early Europa League’s qualifying stages (disqualifying Linfield and getting disqualified by Standard Liege) so they are in much better physical condition than their opponents.

Panthrakikos on the other hand is considered according to the Greek online bookie as the number one candidate to finish in the last place of the table. They lost many key players that helped the team to have a decent last season (most of all Papadopoulos that went to Atromitos) and with 3 teams going to Football League once the season will be over it will be hard to save themselves again.

The odds would be much lower if it weren’t the results of the opening round with Panthrakikos avoiding the defeat at Levadeiakos (in a very “strange” match with a “notorious” team that sells points quite easily though nothing was ever proven in the past) while Skoda lost 3-0 at Salonica against Paok that is of course the 2nd best team at the moment in Greece (and one step away from disqualifying Schalke as well). I see value for the hosts and personally if I was an oddsmaker the home win would be below 1.80!

Home win @ 2.04 Stake: 4/4
