The squad for the match against Xanthi
The Super League reaches the half-way stage this weekend as PAOK welcome Xanthi to the Toumba aiming for another three-point haul to remain at the top of the table.
The preparations for the upcoming match were completed on Friday (06.12) morning with a training session at the Toumba. Abel Ferreira worked on fine-tuning the approach that he wants from his players against the Akrites with some tactical drills and work on set-pieces. The program began with a fitness-based warm-up and a game of piggy-in-the-middle, and ended with a game of two-touch.
The Portuguese coach has to do without the suspended Douglas Augusto, and injured duo Leo Jaba and Pontus Wernbloom.
The following 19 were selected for the match against Xanthi:
Paschalakis, Zivkovic, Varela, Matos, Rodrigo, Crespo, Giannoulis, Ingasson, Vierinha, Mauricio, El Kaddouri, Music, Esiti, Pelkas, Biseswar, Limnios, Lamprou, Akpom, Swiderski
