Europa League: Estoril vs Panathinaikos Betting Preview

In the second round of Europa League in Group E, Estoril will host Panathinaikos.


Estoril didn’t have the best start in this European competition and they are defeated in their first match against PSV 1-0. Their performance in domestic  Primeira Liga is far from good.

They have managed to win only once this season in Primeira Liga. Estoril have very solid attack, but their defence in not on the high level. They have the second worst defence, conceded 14 goals in 6 matches this season. Actually, the conceded at least one goal on every match this season in all competitions.

An important defender Bruno Miguel (3/2 d), midfielder Babanco (6/0 m) and striker Balboa (2/0 f) are all out.

Panathinaikos also lost in the first match at home against Dynamo Moscow 1-2, so this match is very important for them in order to keep their chances to go through in the next round.

They started solid at the Super League and lost only once this season (3-1-1). They are full of confidence after three consecutive wins.

The visitors will be without Spiropoulos (0/0 d), Mendes da Silva (3/0 m) and Berg (1/0 f).

Panathinaikos is in a better form, they have very solid team and I believe they could stay undefeated tonight.
