PANATHINAIKOS FORM GUIDE
Posted 05 December 2012 4:41pm
Panathinaikos have only lost twice - and changed coach - since our meeting in Athens in October.
That run includes just one loss in eight games in the Greek Super League and they sit sixth after Sunday's 2-1 win at Panionios GSS. The run also includes a fine win against second-placed PAOK.
In the Europa League, they are back in contention in Group J after a late equaliser against Lazio and then a 1-0 win against NK Maribor in Matchday Five.
They now need to beat us at the Lane in Matchday Six on Thursday night to progress - a point will take us through.
A few more facts...
