Teams: Panathinaikos, Barcelona, Celtic, Argentina NT
Yes Andreas was very disappointing during the EURO, but that was actually good for us because we bought him pretty cheap. Ivancshitz is a quality player and had a good season last year in Greece. Peseiro (our coach last year) was a huge fan of rotation so we didn’t really have a starting eleven lineup. The problem with Ivanschitz is that, although he is quality, he’s somewhat inconsistent in his performances, he could have a fantastic game in a match and be invisible in the next one.
I don’t know if Ten Cate is going to use him as a starter, (he used at the game against Dinamo though) I don’t even know if there are going to be any starters in the midfield for Panathinaikos this season. Ten Cate uses a 4-2-3-1 formation with Andreas playing in the -3- of that, where the competition is pretty tough with Karagounis, Ninis, Salpingidis Rukavina, Christodoulopoulos also competing for 3 places. The advantage for Ivanschitz is that he’s the only left footed one.
