Slavia Prague vs Panathinaikos Match Analysis and Prediction

Slavia Prague will welcome Panathinaikos to the Fortuna Arena on Thursday in the third round of the Europa Conference League playoffs.

The hosts saw off St Joseph’s in the previous round of the qualifiers, while the visitors will take to the field for the first competitive match this season.

Slavia Prague began their league campaign on the back foot through a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Hradec Kralove at the Lokotrans Arena.

Following a dull first half, Jindrich Trpisovsky’s side fell behind to Daniel Vasulin’s goal within 10 minutes of the second half which proved to be the difference between the sides.

Slavia Prague curently sit 13th in the league table after the opening round of matches and will be looking to get back to winning ways in their next league match.

However, a third-ever meeting awaits against a Panathinaikos side who have won each of the last two meetings between the teams which both came back in 2001.

Off the back of a seven-goal haul in their last home game, the Slavists will be seeking to turn on the style in front of their fans once again.

Meanwhile, Panathinaikos wrapped up their preparations for the upcoming campaign with a 2-1 win over Dutch side Volendam at the Apostolos Nikolaidis Stadium on Thursday.

Goals from Dimitrios Kourbelis and Carlotos Lopez in either half got the job done for the Greens in a tightly-contested affair.

Ivan Jovanovic’s side have now extended their unbeaten run to six matches across all competitions dating back to last season and have recorded five clean sheets in the process.

Ahead of the return leg in Athens later next week, Thursday’s visitors will be seeking to pick up a positive result away from home and give themselves of a good chance of progressing to the next stage.
