New Dinamo test for Panathinaikos

Panathinaikos is tonight expected to seal its passage to the third qualifying round of the Champions League in its second-leg clash with Dinamo Tbilisi in Georgia. Leading 3-0 from the first leg, the Greeks should be through to the next round, where they will face the winner of the Sparta Prague vs Sheriff Tiraspol clash. The Greens are hoping for a decent performance in the Georgian capital at 7 p.m. (Greek time) today, and possibly one more win. «This is a very different game to the one we played in Athens, as then we had to create moves and score goals, whereas now we can wait and respond, depending on the situation,» said Panathinaikos coach Henk ten Cate. «We want to score a goal and seal our qualification. What is most important is that we do not concede in the first few minutes; this will be our focus,» added the Dutch coach, before being asked about Brazilian star Gilberto Silva. «He has only trained with us for about a week, so we will see what we can do. Our aim is to have him ready for the next round,» he explained.
