The important stuff begins now
PAOK completed Super League their regular season with a goalless draw at Chania and they will start the play-offs with 0 points.
The match was mediocre, especially in the first half. Both sides were minding their defence and it took PAOK 43 minutes to create real danger in Platanias’s box, with a diving header by Ergys Kace.
The match opened up after the interval, as both teams went after a victory –had PAOK won on Sunday, they would have started the play-offs with one point in their tally.
With more space available, Platanias went for the opener but they came up against Panagiotis Glykos who made a spectacular comeback. Garry Rodrigues and Dimitris Pelkas tried their luck as well, but they weren’t able to break the deadlock.
Vladan Ivić’s troops are focusing now on the play-offs, aiming to make the most of an opportunity to turn things around and clinch a spot in the UEFA Champions League qualifying round.
Platanias: Kokkalas, Coulibaly, Vanderson, Selin, Banana, Gnjatić (84′ Pangalos), Dinas, Stanisavljević, Angulo (76′ Tsourakis), Goundoulakis, Milunović (67′ Ramos).
PΑΟΚ: Glykos, Tziolis, Mak, Chatziisaias, Malezas, Rodrigues, Cimirot, Tzavellas, Korovesis (90′ Charisis), Kace (62′ Pelkas), Kitsiou.
