2017-2018 Greek Cup

Recommended Posts

The last two spots were decided today. Also Panionios managed to lose to indifferent Panageialeios and ended in second place instead of first.  

SEEDED TEAMS

OFI
PAOK
AEK
Atromitos
Olympiakos
AO Xanthi
PAS Gianna
Panathinaikos

UNSEEDED TEAMS

Platanias Chania
Levadeiakos
PAS Lamia
AO Trikala
Asteras Tripoli
Panaitolikos
Panionios
AE Larisa

We can't be drawn against Levadeiakos since they were 2nd in our group. All the other teams are beatable. Would like to stay away from Panionios, tripoli and Panaitolikos. Would not mind being drawn against Platanias, Trikala or Larisa.

Draw is on December 4. The Round of 16 games will be played in mid-December.

Here are the results of the draw:

 

Platanias - Olympiakos 
Asteras Tripolis - Atromitos 
Levadiakos - PAS Giannina 
Lamia - Panathinaikos 
Panaitolikos - AEK 
Trikala - PAOK 
Panionios - OFI 
Larissa - Xanthi

 

We shouldn't have any trouble. The most interesting matchups to me are Asteras-Atromitos and Levadiakos-Giannina. Panaitolikos vs AEK might be good, though I don't think Aetolians are having a good season.

They might be playing in the Football League but last year we faced them in GS of the cup with a 0-0 draw as a result. They beated Larisa and progressed. This year they drew with Kerkyra and Atromitos in the GS and advanced to the next phase of the cup. Will be a tougher cookie than it seems at first sight.

We should have no problem with Trikala. Specially with the second game being played at Toumba. I think we will secure promotion in first game.

I would not be surprised if we see one or even two big teams departing from the competition.

Care to make a prediction on which? Perhaps Lamia, if PAO's situation continues to deteriorate?

I had the two Athenian teams in mind, with Panathinaikos being the most obvious choice.

There shouldn't be a return leg this early in the cup. The cup is supposed to be full of surprises therefore having two games defeats the object.

Teams qualifying to the quartefinal:

PAOK
Atromitos
Olympiakos
AEK
Panionios
AE Larisa
PAS Lamia
PAS Giannina

Who do we want in Monday's draw? I would take Larisa or Lamia and hope for a Panionios - AEK/Olympikoas, Atromitos - AEK/Olympiakos or Olympiakos AEK matchups.

In order of who I'd WANT to play:

Lamia

Larissa

Giannina

Panionios

AEK

Olympiakos

 

I'm mostly just concerned about fatigue; keeping AEK and Oly apart from each other for this round would ensure that they're forced to play more games (which could benefit us in the league). I am confident that we have the depth we need either way, on the other hand.

We've been drawn to play Atromitos. Tricky draw no doubt. Wonder if our loaned guys will be allowed to play, no doubt atromitos will look for a loop hole saying it was only stated they would sit out league games. 

Olympiakos vs AEK so prepare yourselves for drama in that one. 
Panionios v Lamia
Giannina v Larissa 

First legs from the 23rd-25th of Jan with the return legs from the 6th-8th of Feb

I like how I missed them entirely in my list...

The official rule is that they can play our guys vs us. Since there is a gentlemen's agreement in the league, it might hold here as well. I know, not much of an answer...

Looks like atromitos just confirmed that they won't be playing our loanees vs us.

The Olympiakos - AEK matchup is good for the us as far as the Superleague is concerned.
