Countdown to Saturday
Intensity, passion, hard work, and an eagerness to return to action are the order of the day. Everybody in the PAOK camp are counting down the days until the team returns to Super League action.
The team’s preparations for the match against Atromitos in Peristeri on Saturday (19.09, 19:00) are in full swing. And, the tempo and intensity has stepped up a few notches as PAOK aim to put on another good performance.
Thursday’s (12.09) training included lots of tactical work but also with a heavy emphasis on physical conditioning. The final part of the session was particularly demanding and was devoted to high-tempo, competitive matches.
Fernando Varela trained normally without any issues, while Douglas Augusto and Omar El Kaddouri completed the main part of the program, and then went on to undertake some important fitness tests. Tomorrow, both players are expected to take part in the complete training session.
On Friday (13.09), PAOK will train at 10:15 at the Toumba and the team will depart for Athens in the afternoon.
