PAOK will fight for the win that will secure them the qualification. It's a fact that PAOK can't be as ready as their coach would like them to be, but they have to play in one of the most crucial games of the season. A negative result may cause harm in their European journey and that's something nobody wants to see. Tumba's stadium is expected to be full and fans will give an extra push to PAOK's players.
On the other hand, Basel travel to Thessaloniki with plenty of problems. Many core players resigned from last year's team, while their substitutes haven't adapted in their new team yet. Team's moral is in a bad condition since in their last friendly games they were defeated 4-1 from Aarau and 5-0 from Feyenoord. These defeats may were in a friendly level, but they show that Basel have many problems that they have to solve.
Τhe ideal scenario for PAOK is a win with a score that will secure them a trip to Switzerland in a qualifying mode. Still a win will give them a lead despite from the final score. That's PAOK's minimum goal. They can take advantage of Swiss team's problems.
