Panathinaikos at 1.794 2/10
Today at 20:45, the 3rd qualifying round for the entry ways to the Champions League is on. An fascinating match concerning Motherwell and Panathinaikos is up on the timetable at the Motherwell’s stadium, Fir Park. Motherwell was 3rd last season, right behind Celtic and Sporting Rangers. Panathinaikos was 2nd, while Olympiacos saved the 1st place with 5 points of advantage. Numerous players have left the rows of Panathinaikos, but a lot of players also came to Panathinaikos. Panathinaikos sold: Ninis, Bjärsmyr, Cleyton, Kanté, Melissis, Owusu-Abeyie, Rudolf. While it was reinforced by: Fornaroli, Velasquez, Andre Pinto, Barbarouses, Sissoko, Sow. Panathinaikos’s functionality looked rather awful in the previously played friendly matches. The coach has to improve it in the today’s match. They’ve lost in opposition to Krasnodar 2-1 and played a draw with Eintracht.
Motherwell played pretty good in the friendly matches. Hamilton Academical was a piece of cake (3-0), while they’ve maintained to play a draw with Everton. Motherwell’s board haven’t been shopping for players this summer, but I think they still have room for improvement and enhancement of their squad. If they don’t do that, they’ll hardly do anything in Europe. The only player they’ve bought is Ramsden (defender), while 4 players left the club. For the Panathinaikos team, only Saunders (defender) will miss the match. I think Panathinaikos has much more players and better players than Motherwell, that’s why my bet goes on Panathinaikos.
