Our football match prediction:
Panionios will be looking to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to APOEL (last warm-up game) when they take on Gorica of Slovenia in the Europa League second qualifying round. It has been ten years since the Blue Reds last participated in the Europa League group stages and they are eager to regain their spot in the European competition. Panionios welcome Gorica at Stadio Neas Smirnis in the first leg and we predict that they are going to record a victory over the Slovenian side in Thursday’s football match. Gorica set up a meeting with the Greek side by beating Shirak of Armenia in the double-header, but they are unlikely to spoil Panionios’ party at Stadio Neas Smirnis. Miran Srebrnic’s men suffered seven defeats in last nine away games in the Europa League and they are widely expected to return home empty-handed from the trip to Greece.
