My final pick for the day will be the most logical one: we simply need to opose slumping Olympiakos. Now it is obvious that their crisis is deep and their Europa League disaster last week will only deepen the problems. I think this is going to be one of the toughest derbies they played in the recent decade. Pana, after years of crisis, finally look strong again and they will be up for a kill.
Oly were once again some 10-12 points in front in the League and were looking strong in the Europe. But then things started to go all wrong, managing this season looks to be below par for suc han established Club and their results are the worst in recent years. Oly are still leading, but their advantage is now only 6 points and if they lose this, they could find themselves under pressure to win the title at all. They played four tough games lately and lost them all: against AEK, Panionios, PAOK and of course Besiktas. And Pana is the strongest after Turkihs Champions...
Also perfect for Panathinaikos is the fact they were able to prepare on this match. Oly played Europa League match three days ago while Panathinaikos were preparing the whole week long and for sure will have nore stamina and also motivation.
Panathinaikos will play with their best team while Oly will need to do some changes, taking all into account, I see Pana winning this: 2-1!
