Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
PAOK and Lincoln Red Imps face each other in a David-vs-Goliath clash at Toumba Stadium. The Black and White Eagles face a match point as a win over Lincoln should see them book their place in the Conference League last 32. Even though PAOK are on a five-game winless run in all competitions, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise.
The rock-bottom side, on the other hand, suffered a loss in each of their five group games. The Gibraltar outfit have nothing to play for in Thursday’s clash, and we do not believe that they are capable of claiming a major scalp at Toumba Stadium. When the two teams met in Gibraltar earlier in the process PAOK recorded a 2-0 win over Lincoln Red Imps, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
