Tip Reasoning

  • Five of PAOK’s six group goals have arrived in the first half.
  • Each of their two goals at home at this stage have come before half-time.
  • Nine of the 15 goals Lincoln Red Imps have conceded in this competition have come in the first 45 minutes.

Hosts have the incentive

After five matchdays, PAOK find themselves third in Group F on eight points, level with Slovan Bratislava but behind the Slovakian outfit on goal difference. They need to better Bratislava’s result away at group leaders FC Copenhagen and the Greek side will be confident they can as they host the pointless Lincoln Red Imps in Thessaloniki.

A vital point in a 0-0 draw in Slovakia leaves PAOK with a chance of making it into the preliminary knockout round. They are winless in five in all competitions but are well fancied to help their cause here with a victory and repeat their 2-0 win from matchday one where they won 2-0 in Gibraltar.

Gibraltar guests out of their depth

It’s been a campaign to forget for Lincoln Red Imps who made their full European debut this season. They have lost all five group games conceding 15 goals, three on average, and five goals across their two away fixtures.

It’s been a torrid maiden voyage on the continent and I expect their woes to continue against a PAOK side who will be hellbent on racking up a huge win. Despite a 100% record after six games domestically, Lincoln have been trailing at half-time in four of their five defeats in this competition and have lost each match by at least two goals.

60% of the goals they have conceded have arrived in the first half and that is why are prediction is for the first half to be the period with the most goals. With three goals conceded per game on average, I’m predicting a 3-0 win for PAOK and for them to get their business done early in this one.
