Morning session and Wednesday’s schedule
PAOK are on the final stretch of their preparations for their second-leg encounter against FC Olimpik Donetsk. Players and coaching staff worked on their tactics on Tuesday morning in Nea Mesimvria.
Aleksandar Stanojević and his assistants lowered the intensity level of the session, in order not to strain the players ahead of the encounter against the Ukrainian side.
After completing their warm-up routine (jogging, obstacle course and passing on balance balls), they engaged in possession games of 5v2, practiced their finishing and engaged in 1v1 and 3v3 duels against big and mini goals.
Dorian Lévêque was the only absentee. He continued his physiotherapy program in order to recover from the calf injury he sustained in the friendly encounter against Anorthosis Famagusta FC.

On Wednesday, the pre-match press conference of PAOK will be held at 18:00 in Toumba Stadium, with Aleksandar Stanojević and a player representing the squad. The training session is scheduled to start at 19:30 in Nea Mesimvria, with the first 15 minutes open to the media.
