Head to Head


PAOK met Hearts for the first time last week, winning 2-1 in Scotland.

PAOK Thessaloniki Form


PAOK are undefeated in seven matches, winning five and keeping four clean sheets. They got past Beitar Jerusalem 4-1 in the Conference League qualifiers before defeating Hajduk Split 3-0 in the third round.

Razvan Lucescu’s side have had a perfect start in the Super League 1, playing their opening two games at home which resulted in a 3-0 win against Asteras Tripolis and 2-1 win against Kifisia.

PAOK Thessaloniki won 2-1 at Hearts in the Conference League play-off first leg. They fell behind early in Scotland but hit back through Stefan Schwab’s penalty before Andrija Zivkovic netted a 75th minute winner.

PAOK Thessaloniki Injuries


Midfielder Filipe Soares is doubtful with a strain.

Hearts Form


Hearts went undefeated in their opening two Premiership matches this season. They lost 2-1 at Rosenborg in the Conference League third-round first leg before a 3-1 home win sent them through.

Frankie McAvoy’s side thrashed Partick Thistle 4-0 in the League Cup but couldn’t use it in the Conference League play-off first leg against PAOK, losing 2-1 after Lawrence Shankland gave them an early lead.

Hearts returned to the Premiership with a 1-0 defeat at Dundee FC where they had 65% possession and 5-4 shots on target.

Hearts Injuries


Goalkeeper and captain Craig Gordon has a fractured leg. 

Centre-back Craig Halkett is out alongside midfielders Peter Haring, Calem Nieuwenhof and Beni Baningime.

Attacking midfielder Finlay Pollock and winger Barrie McKay remain out.

Verdict

PAOK have won four straight matches and have a 2-1 advantage here. Hearts are set for a tough match in Greece where I am backing the hosts to win to nil.
