Panathinaikos will host Club Brugge in the first leg of the third qualifying round for the Champions League.
Panathinaikos this year seriously strengthened their team. They brought some very good players like Essien in Milan, Sanchez from Malaga, Thelander from Aalborg and Wemmer from Paderborn. And for this season they have big ambitions. The interest for this match in Greece is great and all tickets for this match are sold out. So it will be a hell of an atmosphere and we already know that it is very difficult to beat a Greek team on their home ground in the European competitions.
On the other hand Club Brugge has already started the season and no very good . They lost in the Super Cup final against Gent 1 – 0, and they are also defeated in the first round of the Jupiler League against St Truiden, 2 -1 . In addition to all this for this game they have many of injured players, so I think Panathinaikos can win this match
