Tough draw for Greek sides in Europa League group stage

Following Thursday night’s high, when all three Greek teams competing in the Europa League made it into the group stage of the competition, a harsh reality struck Friday as they found out who they will be facing next.

The draw in Monaco pitted Greek Cup winner Panathinaikos against Dutch league leader PSV Eindhoven, Portugual’s Estoril and Dynamo Moscow – all tough opponents for the Greens.

PAOK also had a challenging draw as the Thessaloniki side will have to play Italian team Fiorentina, Dinamo Minsk of Belarus and the winners of the French Cup, Guingamp.

However, Asteras Tripolis faces the most difficult task of all three Greek teams.

The Peloponnesian side will play Tottenham from the English Premier League, Turkey’s Besiktas, which narrowly failed to qualify for the Champions League group stage, and Serbia’s Partizan Belgrade.

The first games will be on September 18, when Panathinaikos will host Dynamo Moscow in Athens, PAOK will play Dinamo Minsk in Thessaloniki and Asteras will travel across the Aegean to face Besiktas in Istanbul.
