UEFA Europa League
CHE vs PAO Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The Greeks would be hosting Chelsea FC in the opening game of their group. PAOK Thessaloniki would want to take this as a fresh start to their Europa League campaign but they are up against one of the top teams from the English Top Flight. Not only is that, also adding to their woes their Europa League form. They exited the Europa League in the group stage the last time out and before that they made four consecutive appearances in the Europa League but got past of the group stage only in one occasion. So there would not be much hope in Greece but one can only wonder if this time things would be different. The fact that they only made it once to the knockout stage proves that they lack the depth in their squad to compete against top teams in Europe.
In their last clash against one of top flight European teams at home, they lost the game 4-1 to Benfica in the UEFA Champions League playoff round and now as they face Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea who had been in great form, it remains only a question of by how many goals would they concede in the 90 minutes of the game.
Chelsea might have fell short in the pre season games to Manchester City in the Community Shield final but have been a dominant force ever since in the English Premier League. With five straight wins in the five games they have played so far, Chelsea is one of the top contenders to win the English Premier League title chasing after Liverpool FC who has also kept a 100% winning record. Their last stint against Cardiff City saw them coming from behind to make the score 4-1. Though Sarri is expected to make some changes in the squad for this game but we are still backing the Blues to win this game given their current form at the moment and also the potential they have in their ranks. With a win in the Europa League’s first game, Chelsea would eye to lift the trophy along with the league title.
UEFA Europa League, PAOK Thessaloniki FC vs Chelsea FC is to be played at Toumba Stadium, Thessaloniki at 17:55 PM ET UK. A thrilling game awaits everyone and can be watched live on Sony LIV.
