Panathinaikos and PAOK Progress in Europa League, Panionios Knocked Out
Panathinaikos and PAOK progressed to the play-offs of the Europa League after winning their second leg games against Qabala and Olimpik Donetsk respectively.
Panionios, however, was knocked out from the competition losing 1-0 for the second time in a week to Maccabi Tel Aviv in Athens.
Panathinaikos was clearly the better team in Baku and beat Azerbaijan’s Qabala 2-1 on the night and 3-1 on aggregate to emphatically avenge its elimination from the same competition two years ago.
PAOK successfully handled the 1-1 first-leg score from Ukraine and beat Olimpik Donetsk 2-0 at home on Thursday for a 3-1 total score.
The draw for the Europa League play-offs, which AEK Athens, AEK Larnaca and Apollon Limassol will also enter, is taking place on Friday afternoon.
