The Xanthi vs. Larissa match will be played on Monday, October 8, at the Xanthi Arena, Pigadia. This is the sixth round match of Greek Super League. Xanthi is currently 9th on the table with 6 points, while Larissa is 10th at the moment, with the same amount of points.


  • Xanthi was defeated only once in their previous eight matches in all competitions. However, they recorded six draws during that period. Also, in seven out of those eight games we saw under 2.5 goals.
  • Larissa was defeated in four out of their last five matches in all competitions. In three out of those four defeats they failed to score a single goal.


In their previous six games we didn't see a draw and both teams recorded three victories each. It is interesting that home team won all six matches so far, and that visitors failed to score a single goal!


Xanthi is one of the best defensive teams in the league - they conceded only two goals so far. However, they are also one of the worst attacking teams in the league, with only four goals scored at the moment. Except for Panathinaikos, Xanthi didn't play against the best teams in the league, so the victory against Larissa is mandatory for them. If they lose this, Xanthi might even drop into the fierce battle against relegation.

Larissa is in a terrible form at the moment, and they are also in danger of dropping into the relegation zone. Their goal for the season is to avoid the battle against relegation and they would be happy with a point against Xanthi. Their biggest problem is scoring, since their attackers found the net only three times so far.
