Xanthi could not get a positive result from Thessaloniki, lost 1-0 to Mars and also suffered a defeat at Pigadia on Sunday from Panathinaikos without showing anything different from what we know. He does not create, does not score, concedes at least one goal in each game and this one is enough to lose once he does not easily score goals.
Hosting OFI this time he also lost to Heraklion 0-1 from the Olympic middleweight, what I wrote above applies. If the Thracian team wants to claim something, it must score.
The Cretans are unrecognizable from Christmas onwards and make their own belly like all groups at some point. They may be disappointed at home as they only managed to beat Panionios away from Crete but one goal I think they can find.
Xanthi as a home team has a balance to say (4-2-4) and my opinion is that it will be able to score at least one goal that will help it not lose. To score one of the second and second goals I find it difficult and since they are 26 points and aim to play in the first half play-offs, my match seems pretty balanced and my rating is that there will be no winner.
