Emphasis on tactics
Two days before the second leg of the Greek Cup quarter-final tie at the “Apostolos Nikolaidis” and the Double-headed Eagle squad continue their preparation for the upcoming match, with tactics being in the foreground.
PAOK are aiming to seal a ticket to the semi-finals of the Greek Cup and everyone is fully aware that another difficult game awaits.
On Tuesday (24.01), training started with a warm-up and then some possession games. Then Razvan Lucescu worked with his players in the field of tactics, both in attack and defensive situations, while in the final part the players who were in the starting XI of the last match against Panathinaikos in the league followed a recuperation program, while the rest of the group played out a mini friendly.
Felipe Soares followed part of the training session and then worked individually. Omar El Kaddouri, Marios Tsaousis and Nicolas Quagliata did individual work on the training pitch, Thomas Murg did some running, while Jasmin Kurtic continued the special program that he has been following, and Lefteris Lyratzis worked in the gym.
On Wednesday (25.01) PAOK will train at 10:30 at the Toumba, and then in the afternoon the squad will depart for Athens on a charter flight from Macedonia Airport.
