PAOK in Europe 2018-2019

Recommended Posts

Draw of EL is next. Starts in an hour. We are seeded and could face one of these (winning) clubs if we lose the tie against Basel:


Zorya Luhansk (UKR)
Hapoel Haifa (ISR) v FH Hafnarfjördur (ISL)
Viitorul (ROU) v Vitesse (NED)
Shakhtyor Soligorsk (BLR) v Lech Poznań (POL)
Nordsjælland (DEN) v AIK (SWE)

Hopefully the Swiss face either the Roumanians or Dutch (first game an away match).

To summarize today's draws.

If we eliminate Basel we will play Spartak Moscow in Qualifying Round 3 of Champions League. First game at Toumba on August 7/8. Return game in Moscow on August 14.

If we lose to Basel we will play the winner of Vitesse Arnheim - Viirtorul Constanta. First game away on August 9. return game at Toumba on August 116.

Unfortunately the two draws today were the worst for PAOK.

Spartak Moscow is a tough team and probably the strongest of the four available opponents. Would have preferred Slavia Prague. 

As for the Europa League draw we were unlucky as well, as we will most likely once again face a Dutch team. It is almost impossible for us (given the past history) to eliminate Dutch teams in European competitions. 

For that reason, it is quite important to eliminate Basel, so we can be guaranteed the Europa League group stage.

If we progress past Basel, we will play Spartak Moscow on 8/8 and 8/14. Home game first.

If only PAOK had not conceded that away goal, 2-0 would put them in great shape.

Don't know about that. We are quite capable of shooting ourselves in the foot from whatever position

Very true.

But we have to be objective guys. Basel played a shitty game, we had the possession etc, but what about big chances?

They had two, one in the 12th minute and one in the stoppage time of the first half and we had one similar with Limnios. Those were clear cut chances.

PAOK γερά!!!!!!!

Monday is the draw for PO CL (and EL). We will be probably paired with either the winner of Benfica-Fenerbahce or Standard Liege-that Dutch club. This because UEFA is avoiding Russian-Ukrainian ties.

Just got that conformation too. Has to do with the seeding-thing combined with the Rus/Ukr-thing. Only thing to draw is who plays home first.

Hope you can watch the game there, BT!

Worst potential draw for us, in my opinion. Benfica is nasty. Hopefully the Turks knock them out.

I don't think I can get to Lisbon, because I'll be in the Azores with my wife and 3 kids....but I will be in a bar, in Faial with my PAOK jersey on and brass knuckled in my back pocket, lol.

Είναι τόσο άδικο που πρέπει να περάσουμε τόσα μεγαθήρια για να μπούμε ομίλους και η ΑΕΚ έχει να κάνει βόλτα στην εξοχή. Μια ζωή στα δύσκολα ρε ΠΑΟΚ!

Does anyone know what would happen if there was a semifinal draw involving CSKA and Shakhtar? Would there be no draw as they would still keep them apart?

Fenerbahce would be "interesting". As long as we get through Spartak then I hope they beat Benfica.

Yes they would keep them apart. Happened a year or two ago in semis of EL. Only a final can't separate them, but then it is 100% sure on neutral ground. Only draw is for first home-leg.

Just shows you how stupid UEFA is. Let Ukrainian  and Russian teams face each other at neutral venues without fans. Problem solved.

If we beat Spartak we will be playing the first leg of PO CL away either in Lisbon or in Konstantinoupoli.

Fener are beatable.  Benfice are a level above.  Or rather, they were.  Not sure these days how strong they are.

We will see who we get.

Rather not the ex-commies but if so then bring on Dynamo Kiev (crap against the Dutch contender that must not be named) as UEFA forced us to play Benfica instead of an open draw which could have been overturned if Kiev indeed had to play Spartak Moscow.

As for possibly visiting the away games: Anderlecht, Eintracht Frankfurt and Dudelange.

Saw a fun draw simulator in another forum. https://draw.inker.fun/#/el/gs/2018

I got PAOK with Arsenal, Bordeaux and Vorskla Poltava. I think I try again ....
