Football Bet of the Day: Greek defences to bear gifts

We're seeking Friday night fun in Greece

"Panachaiki have seen three of their last four league games feature at least three goals, and that's true of four of Platanias' last five outings."

Back Over 2.5 Goals at 2.285/4

After picking up three winners from four selections this week, Kev's hoping for an odds-against success in Greece.

Goals galore in Greece

Panachaiki v Platanias
Friday 03 January, 16:00

Morocco won the race to give us our first winner of the year, as Berkane's 3-1 victory over Khouribga landed an odds-against BTTS winner. I doubt the Moroccan Tourist Board will use that in their literature, but you never know.

Now we head to Greece for a second-tier clash between Panachaiki and Platanias, because I suspect there are some goals in store.

Panachaiki, or the Red and Blacks, finished fifth last term, but a recent slump has seen them lose ground in this season's promotion race. They have lost three of their last four games in the league.

Platanias were relegated from the top tier two seasons ago, and last term they finished second but still missed out on a return to the big time. This season they have been inconsistent, winning five games and drawing four in the league.

Four of Platanias' last five league matches have featured at least three goals, while Panachaiki have seen three of their last four outings in the second tier go above the 2.5 goals line.

I'll back Over 2.5 Goals here at 2.285/4.
