So the draw for the playoffs took place today and overall I can't complain all that much. Take a look below to see who we'll be playing and when. Its worth noting that our first game against PAOK in Toumba will be played without fans.

1st Matchday (May 11th):PAOK AEK, Toumba, Thessaloniki

2nd Matchday (May 15th):Panionios AEK, Nea Smyrni, Athens

3rd Matchday (May 18th): Panathinaikos AEK, Leoforos, Athens

4th Matchday (May 22nd): AEK Panathinaikos, OAKA, Athens

5th Matchday (May 25th): AEK PAOK, OAKA, Athens

6th Matchday (May 29th): AEK Panionios, OAKA, Athens

Its a bit strange that all of our first three games are away but the way I see it is, if we can come out strong and get some results in the first three matches, then we have a good chance of finishing the playoffs in a good way.
