PAOK have favourable record against English clubs, but so are Chelsea against Greek opponents – expect both defenses to be tested

PAOK and Chelsea kick off their UEFA Europa League Group L campaign at the Toumba Stadium on Thursday evening.

The Greek giants have an impressive record at home against teams from England – winning one and drawing the other and they will be aiming to continue in that vein of form when Maurizio Sarri’s men visit.

Meanwhile, the Blues are enjoying a scintillating run of form in the domestic scene; winning every game they have played so far – and they have held their hosts to draws on both their previous two trips to Greece. Another stalemate at the end of 90 minutes in this one is valued at the price of (3.50) with Bet365.
