Judging by the aroma coming from the shed every Friday, there's a few who would disagree with you!!!

They played rovers back in 2011. Different squad but their supporters are head cases. Thessaloniki would be a hardened working port city. Feck that!

This is the current UEFA 5 year club ranking for 2020 based on performances from 2015/16 through to the current season. Although PAOK are higher ranked right now, over the last 3 years Qarabag have 11.5 points versus 7 points for PAOK.


21 eq Ajax Ned 6.00 22.0 1.50 27.0 2.50 59.000
66 eq PAOK Thessaloniki Gre 6.00 8.00 1.50 3.00 2.50 21.000
69 eq Garabag Agdam Azb 3.00 5.00 6.00 3.00 2.50 19.500
126 eq Dundalk Irl 1.00 3.00 1.00 1.50 2.00 8.500
164 up Slovan Bratislava Svk 1.00 0.50 0.50 2.00 2.00 6.000
299 up Riga FC Lat 1.00 2.00 3.000

Assuming that it will be on skorlive.com, it will be interesting to watch the them play at home to Ajax tomorrow at 6pm

That's an awful unlucky draw, could've been so much better. But on the upside, theres a potential dream trip to Amsterdam for fans!!!!
Athens it will be Colly. And i a strange twist. If we had beaten qarabag and stayed in the champions league, our playoff round would be against the winners of PAOK / Ajax.
Dundalk Fc. First Irish club to win points in group stages of a major European Competition.

Well they beat Olympiakos and Panathonikos to the Greek championship so I would say yeah!

Anyone see the videos of when they won the league? Crazy feckers

Don't forget the holiday last min packages folks, this is party central, loads of deals out there, some even 'all in'.

Not too many holiday packages going next or near the north east of Greece though is there? Thessaloniki is not exactly Crete.

Once again (assuming it's PAOK, and makinghe huge assumption that it could be Dundalk!) it's not the most glamorous opposition and an awkward long distance away trip. But given the quality of teams in the draw it's probably not the worst in terms of giving us a glimmer of a hope of progress. Don't think they'd be as strong as Qarabag, BATE, Red Star
There was one extraordinary draw, with the winners of ​Ararat-Armenia or Saburtal vs Dudelange or Kalju. Shows the value of the Champions League drop-out route if you're lucky enough to get a handy draw.

This was PAOK reacting to their first title in 30+ years, incidentally

Can only assume they were excited about the prospect of being in the CL with Dundalk

Thessaloniki is the second biggest city in Greece. It’s a fantastic destination for a wkend break.
Lots of beach resorts in Northern Greece or Macedonia as they call it and not a drunk Paddy or Brit to be seen!
