Nothing but qualification…
It’s only the second official match of the season and already the club is facing their first do or die situation. It could only be PAOK.
On Thursday night (27.07), at 20:30, PAOK welcome Levski Sofia to the Toumba for the second leg of the UEFA Europa Conference League’s second qualifying round. The 2-0 defeat in Bulgaria puts the Double-headed Eagle in a precarious position which requires them to… battle against the odds with the only goal on their collective mind being qualification.
The last training session was dedicated to the finer details regarding the tactical approach of the return match against the Bulgarians, while there was also a separate program made for set pieces.
Out of the match are Omar El Kaddouri and Nelson Oliveira, both of whom followed individual programs, as well as Giannis Michailidis, who continues his rehabilitation program.
In full, the players that the Romanian coach will have at his disposal are:
Z.Zivkovic, Kotarski, Lyratzis, Ingason, Kargas, Mihaj, Vieirinha, Rafa Soares, Tsaousis, Tsingaras, Kurtic, Schwab, Filipe Soares, Dantas, Douglas, Ricardo, A. Zivkovic, Konstantelias, Biseswar, Narey, Quagliata, Brandon, Koutsias.
