PAOK in Europe 2022-2023 (News, Draws, Rankings)


Recommended Posts

After the cup final it became official. PAOK will begin the European campaign in 2nd qualifying round of UEFA Europe Conference League. PAOK will be seeded in all the draws all the way to the group stage.

You can follow the seedings in ECL in this link:


We should not really have any problems in the 2nd and 3rd qualifying rounds, but in the playoff round we could end up playing against Fiorentina or Cologne.

Qualifying Round 2 games are scheduled for July 21 and 28.

Here are the teams we can draw on June 15th. Teams with a * are assumed to win their Q1-tie against an opponent with a lower coefficient. Before the draw subgroups are prepared. Last year there where nine subgroups. This means that one of the teams from the nine highest coefficients (Viking .... AIK Stockholm) will be a possible opponent. One from Maccabi Netanya ... Breidablik, etc.

We better avoid the Nordic countries with their up and running summerleagues. And Konya, Aris Limassol/Lemesos and the Polish participants.

Group 8



2 Rijeka (CRO)

3 Vitória SC (POR)

4 Čukarički (SRB)

5 Laçi (ALB) / Iskra Danilovgrad (MNE)



6 Djurgårdens (SWE)

7 Floriana (MLT) / Petrocub-Hincesti (MDA)

8 Levski Sofia (BUL)

9 Puskás Akadémia (HUN)

10 Racing FC Union Luxembourg (LUX)

The Swedes the real club to avoid.

The winner of the Floriana - Petrocub or Racing Union would be a good draw. Hopefully we can avoid Djurgardens. Given our luck however, that will be the opponent we will get.

The draw could have been better (Union), but also worse (Djurgardens).

If we really want to make our minimum goal (group stage), than we should not be worried about the caliber of the teams that were our possible opponents. If we don't go into the two games prepared both physically and mentally, than we will pay for it. Recent past (Ostersud) proves it.

Team list has been published. To me, the only surprise is Murg - but we have the right to make a few changes, and don't be surprised if Narey takes his place.

UEFA reveiled the pre-groups for the Q3 draw but they made a mistake (or epic fail as there was a fail in the champions path too) as we are in group 3 and group 5. I think we are in 5 as Basel and AZ are in group 3 too. 3 of the 5 topseeds in one group is not possible.

I like the unseeded in group 5 better btw.

Group 3
Basel (SUI) / Crusaders (NIR)
Tuzla City (BIH) / AZ (NED)
Royal Antwerp (BEL) / Drita (KOS)
Levski Sofia (BUL) / PAOK (GRE)
Pogoń Szczecin (POL) / Brøndby (DEN)
Dundee United (SCO)
Saint Patrick's Athletic (IRL) / Mura (SVN)
Seinäjoki (FIN) / Lillestrøm (NOR)

Group 4
PFC Zire (AZE) vs Maccabi Tel-Aviv (ISR)
Botev Plovdiv (BUL) vs APOEL (CYP)
Saburtalo (GEO) vs FCSB (ROU)
Gli Vicente (POR)
Wolfsberger (AUT)
Ružomberok (SVK) vs Riga (LVA)
Kyzylzhar Petropavlovsk (KAZ) vs Osijek (CRO)
Víkingur (FRO) vs Dunajská Streda (SVK)
Gzira United (MLT) vs Radnicki (SRB)
Gomel (BLR) vs Aris Thessaloniki (GRE)

Group 5
Twente (NED)
Molde (NOR) vs Elfsborg (SWE)
Rapid Wien (AUT) vs Lechia Gdańsk (POL)
Hapoel Beer-Sheva (ISR) vs Dinamo Minsk (BLR)
Levski Sofia (BUL) vs PAOK (GRE)
Lugano (SUI)
Kairat Almaty (KAZ) vs Kisvarda (HUN)
Aris Limassol (CYP) vs Neftçi (AZE)
Velež (BIH) vs Hamrun Spartans (MLT)
Racing FC Union Luxembourg (LUX) vs Čukarički (SRB)

UEFA corrected the info (messing up Levski and CSKA) on their website and as expected, Levski/PAOK are in group 5, CSKA Sofia/Makedonija are in group 3.

So it is one of:

Lugano (SUI)
Kairat Almaty (KAZ) vs Kisvarda (HUN)
Aris Limassol (CYP) vs Neftçi (AZE)
Velež (BIH) vs Hamrun Spartans (MLT)
Racing FC Union Luxembourg (LUX) vs Čukarički (SRB)

I’d rather avoid Kairat (as travelling some timezones ain’t fun) and Aris (for their name and they might just rise to the occasion as they play a club from the motherland).

I would also avoid Neftchi Baku. It will be hot in Azerbaijan in the middle of the summer. Hopefully we can avoid Lugano as they are the highest rated teams from the unseeded half. So in other words Velez or Cukaricki would be ideal.
