CL–PO-L2: PAOK - Benfica Lisbon (29-Aug-18, 22:00 EEST)

Recommended Posts

HT 1-3

Completely nullified & dominated since we opened the scoring. 

 

Curse of the 1-1 - This will be the fourth time PAOK has failed to qualify after drawing 1 all away.

PAOK we're down 3-1 to Ajax at home, though that was in the 3rd qualifying round, manage to come back and tied 3-3 only to miss a penalty to deny victory.  Hoping for a comeback, you did it against Spartak Moscow.

PAOK is just not good enough. What's the long term goal here for European football... invest in academies, buy better players, what?

Going to take a miracle from here, but we now have nothing to lose given we are 3-1 down. Throw on Warda and Jaba and just run at them. If only Biseswar was on the bench hey

We haven't been good enough mentally, yes Benfica are a better team but we crumbled mentally after the first 20 mins. Will be interesting to see what this error does for Paschalakis confidence, he was in career best form. Remains to be seen if that was a once off or the true keeper shinning through. Would be a shame for all his great work to be brought down by a brain fade

I had Apollo Vaz messaging me saying it's not over. Little did he know that we have the curse of 1-1 away result and losing at home.

The defence is all over the place and I have no idea what Paschalakis was doing. I am cannot bare to watch Europa League again, it is such a terrible competition that only starts getting good from the Quarter final onwards.

Limnios should have been dropped for this game, does anybody know if his agent is Koutsoliakos?

Paschalakis has been great the last number of matches, but today he made a few massive errors in a game where you can’t afford even one.

Scoring so early probably did a major damage to us. Same thing happened against Ajax.

Spot on. Lack of composure in big games has caused as to self destruct yet again.

WTF are you guys talking about? We eliminated two group stage type CL teams so far in this campaign. One quite convincingly. Today we are facing one of the best European sides and it shows. We were never favorites in any of the six CL qualifying games. Much worse teams made the group stage just by going the easy champions route.

They are a better side @PAOKSYD but there is no real excuse for brain fades which led to 2 of the 3 goals. The 3rd goal can't do much we were ripped open by better play. There is a way to lose, in saying that there is still a half to go, grab an early goal and anything is possible. This team has showed heart and passion over this run, let's get back to that in this 2nd half

People can support the team any way they want, and have every right to be livid right now.

There is no way we can turn this game, but I hope we come out and get a respectable result.

The players lost their composure specially after the penalty.

Game is over. 

But were playing a top 20 team in Europe , im not blaming PAOK we have done well. 

 

This season is about winning the league , so we move forward.

You guys are happy with being thumped at home? For some context benfica lost all 6 of their group stage games last season, hardly the form of a "top 20 european club" Like I said there's a way to lose, just frustrating to see the same thing happen

Arguably the biggest game in PAOK's history and the team shits the bed at home vs a team that got smoked in the Champion's League last year. 

Doesn't matter how they got here, this is an embarrassment for Greek football.
