The three-time champion of Greece did not retain his title last season, where they won silver medals and a ticket to the Champions League qualification.

The gap from the first Olympiacos was 18 points.

Benfica, like today's rival, could not hold onto their 37-th Portuguese title. For 34 rounds of the last championship, the "eagles" managed to get 24 wins and drew five times, which brought 77 points. The lead over the first Porto was five points.
The performance indicator of the “red” was 71 goals scored, 18 of which were scored by Pizzi and Carlos Vinicius.
In the Portuguese Cup final the "glorious" lost again, now to the reigning champion with a score of 1:2.
From the first minutes PAOK will try to impose its own game scheme on the enemy. Benfica are strong in attack and are unlikely to agree to a positional battle with the opportunity to bring the matter to a penalty kick, which means leaving the fate of the fight in the hands of chance.
In our opinion, today the Greek team is not able to break traditions, but given the trends and format of the competition, we prefer to play a bet on the total total, which is unlikely to exceed one or two goals today.
Our prediction is that the total is less than 2.5 goals and we bet on it using the 1xBet bookmaker's line with the odds of 1.90
