Venue: Stadio Verias, Verola
Kick off time: 15:15 hrs BST
Veria will be up against Kalloni at the weekend as two of the heavy-weights in the Greek top flight go to battle. The visitors are leading the home side on the table on 3rd place currently with just a point separating the two sides after 9 round of matches. Both teams are expected to be up for this clash which is sure to be a cracking game of football.
Veria’s form: W-L-W-D-D
The home team are coming into this upcoming game on the backs of a couple of drawn games. The side had drawn their games against Panionios FC and Ergotelis in successive weeks in November before the international break kicked in.
Prior to these two games, Veria had won a couple and lost a game to end the previous month. A 4-1 loss against PAOK Thessaloniki FC had come between a couple of wins against Levadiakos FC (2-1) and Ergotelis (0-2) on October 19 and 29 respectively.
Kalloni’s form: W-D-L-D-W
The visitors had won their last game against Panionios FC coming into this game. Kalloni had scored a couple of goals in the away fixture to make sure of the result heading into the break in the league.
Prior to that, Kalloni had last won a game on October 19 when a solitary goal proved to be enough for a win against PAE AO Kerkyra. Kalloni had drawn a couple of games against PAS Giannina FC and Levadiakos FC, both of which finished goalless, either side of a 2-1 loss at Asteras Tripolis FC.
Veria: Italian center-forward Nicolau Dumitru has scored 5 times for the home side this term with 3 of his goals coming in the league. The man is primed to find the back of the net in this crucial fixture.
Kalloni: Senegal forward Henri Camara will be the man who will be carrying the expectations of this team on Sunday.
The home side (1.8 at bet365) should prevail in this upcoming game for the simple reason that the visitors (5.0 at BetVictor) have not scored an awful lot of goals in the last five games. It is a disturbing trend and you do not win a football match if you do not score goals.
