Panathinaikos vs Athletic Prediction 17 August 2017

Tournament: Europa League Qualification
Location: Apostolos Nikolaidis Stadium
Match date: 17.08.2017 at 19:30

On Thursday August 17 at 19:30 in the upcoming first leg game of the final stage of the Europa League qualification in Athens at the Apostolos Nikolaidis Stadium the local Panathinaikos play against Athletic from Bilbao.

The club from the capital Panathinaikos has already become the champion of Greece 20 times in its more than a hundred years history. Panathinaikos also won the national cup 18 times and in the Super Cup three times. They also took part in the final of the European Champions Cup. In the new season Panathinaikos only played two official games where they outplayed Gabala 1:0 and 1:2 in the Europa League qualification quarterfinal.

As for their guest, Athletic, they achieved much less than their competitors and first of all they won the league much less times. Anyway, the Basks have been taking part in the Euro Cups. In those competitions they have already achieved much more than Panathinaikos. They also started the current season in the Europa League semifinal where they outplayed Dinamo Bucharest in their two leg games 4:1.

The teams have never played against each other in their history. Panathinaikos are considered to be the outsiders of the upcoming match. The bookmakers think that Athletic are more likely to win even in their first leg away match. Yet, we aren’t sure that Athletic will manage to win, considering their performance in the away match against Dinamo in Romania. That’s why we think that the visitors will manage to avoid the loss in the upcoming match.
