The relegation battle is ON!
This is how the table looks at the bottom:
12. Levadiakos 28
13. Panionios 26
14. OFI 25
15. Kalithea 20
16. Akratitos 18
Three teams relegate. Kalithea and Akratitos are already down so that leaves one out of OFI, Panionios and Levadiakos.
Levadiakos (28 points) has the following games:
Levadiakos - Olympiakos
OFI - Levadiakos
If Levadiakos gets 4 points in the last 2 games, they are safe. The game against Olympiakos is of course not easy to win at all, and then travelling to Crete to play a direct relegation contenter away from home... It's really hard. Olympiakos should logically beat them but then, they might want to assist sending OFI down for obvious reasons. Don't think Sollied is going to accept that though but I don't trust him enough to control his team over that... However, I do think Olympiakos will win.
Panionios (26 points) has the following games:
Panionios - Iraklis
Egaleo - Panionios
Theoretically, they have the easiest schedule as both Iraklis and Egaleo have nothing to play for. However, Beos is a figure who is universally disliked so I don't think Iraklis is going to roll over and die... But with the other two teams playing each other, I believe winning one game is going to be enough and they'll beat Egaleo for sure.
OFI (25 points) has the following games:
OFI - PAOK
OFI - Levadiakos
OFI definitely needs to beat Levadiakos at home on the last match day. I'm not sure if PAOK will give them a game. We have nothing to play for but Dumitrescu is really arrogant and he doesn't like to loose, and PAOK is also full of young players who do not have yet the "I couldn't care less" mentality.
So two questions:
Who do you think will go down?
Who do you want to go down?
Personally, I dislike Levadiakos because they play horrible football. Both Panionios and OFI give me the creeps for different reasons (Beos and tsatsoi) but they're very historic clubs and it would be a shame if they got relegated. However, there is also the location thing (the less teams from Athens in first division, the better although Panionios would not be my choice to not be there...) so I'd prefer it if Panionios relegates.
But I believe OFI will be relegated. They won't beat Levadiakos on last match day and Panionios will win at least one game.
