Super League Round 30 Preview

Although Olympiakos have wrapped up the league, all eyes look towards where the remaining teams will finish in the season.

Relegation Group

Panionios v Xanthi

Panionios sit last on the league table, but look ahead to a match against Xanthi. When it comes to head to head in this fixture, Xanthi have not won since 2017, giving Panionios confidence. Panionios have won two in their last five, as well as drawing two in their last five. Both sides pulled away with three points in their latest fixtures. Panionios want to escape the last spot, whilst Xanthi want to get closer to Volos, who are eight points ahead of them. A game with much meaning for both sides, expect goals.

Panetolikos v Asteras Tripoli

An even game head to head wise, with two draws coming out of the last five matches. Tripoli sit on top of the relegation group, whilst Panetolikos sit second last, so it is a game of contrasting form. Asteras have only lost one in their last five, whilst Panetolikos have lost two in their last five. The home side have established a fortress at home, not losing since January. Whilst Asteras Tripoli’s away form is in the middle in terms of excellent and awful. Although this is the case, Asteras Tripoli look like the clear favourites to win this game.

Volos v Lamia

Head to head wise, these teams have drawn two games with Lamia taking the edge with two wins. These sides sit one point behind each other. Lamia have not won away since early January, which could pose as a problem for the side. In terms of form, both these sides sit last and second last respectively. A win for either side will bolster their confidence and lead to a positive return of form.

Championship Group

OFI Crete v Panathinaikos

A shocking turn of events as Panathinaikos have not beaten OFI since 2015. However, OFI Crete are struggling with a three game losing streak. Panathinaikos have not won away since January. A game that will not affect league positions, OFI Crete sit 4 points behind ARIS and Panathinaikos sit 10 points behind fellow Athenian team AEK. Panathinaikos have drawn three of the last five, which has seen them drop plenty of points, but is confidence based on the season in which they have had. OFI Crete will be happy to come away with any point, as it will be a massive three pointer for a steady conclusion for their season.

Aris v PAOK

Three draws in the last five, and a winless PAOK in this fixture since 2018 delivers an interesting fixture. After Aris got knocked out in the cup, they are looking to bounce back with a win against fellow Thessaloniki side PAOK. The derby does not disappoint, with 10 goals in the last two matchups. Once again, a win for both sides keeps them firmly in the position they are in. However, PAOK must win in order to stray ahead of AEK, providing they lose. Will the derby disappoint? Or provide a handful of goals?

AEK Athens v Olympiakos

After realising they will face each other in the Greek Cup Final, this Athens Derby will sure be interesting. A 0-0 draw last time out, and both sides on a winning run of form, the game will surely be tight. AEK have not lost since the thirteenth of January, and Olympiakos have not lost since March. However, Olympiakos have the edge on AEK, since AEK have not won this fixture since 2018. AEK Athens will have all to play for in order to jump into second place, and a Champions League qualification spot. Olympiakos will look to extend the gap even more and try to make this season a record breaking one. Look forward to a thrilling Athens Derby.
