Lamia will be hoping to bounce back here after a 1-2 Super League loss in their previous game against Volos.
In that match, Lamia managed 52% possession and 5 shots on goal with 5 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Lamia was Miguel Bianconi (48'). At the other end, Volos got 6 attempts at goal with 5 on target. Anastasios Douvikas (24', 64') was the scorer for Volos.
Lamia have been quite ineffective in attack of late. Their sum of goals equals just 4 vs opposing sides over their last six fixtures. In those meetings, Kyanólefki have also seen the tally of goals scored against them come to 11.
In their last game, Panetolikos drew 1-1 in the Super League tie with Asteras Tripolis.

In 6 of the previous six games involving Panetolikos, a notably low volume of goals have gone in between them and their opposition. The overall average number of goals per game within that period works out to a paltry 1.83, with the number of goals averaged by The Canaries being 0.83. That pattern might not be carried forward into this game, of course.

Team News: Lamia
Lamia manager Giorgos Petrakis will be grateful to have no fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game with a fully healthy squad available for selection.

With a completely injury-free squad available to select from, Panetolikos manager Makis Chavos has zero fitness concerns whatsoever before this match.
We’ve got the feeling that Panetolikos certainly have the ability to find the net against this Lamia side, however that probably won’t quite be enough to avoid a loss.
We think that it’s going to be a close game with a 2-1 victory for Lamia after 90 minutes. Should be a good one.
