PAOK host Lincoln Red Imps at Toumba Stadium in Thessaloniki on Thursday in the final group fixture of the Europa Conference League.

The White-Blacks are currently third in Group F with eight points, as many as second-placed Slovan Bratislava, but a position adrift courtesy of inferior goal difference.

As things stand, the Slovakian outfit are going into the preliminary knockout round over PAOK, unless PAOK better Bratislava's result in the other game against Copenhagen.

If both sides win, it will come down to goal difference - Bratisvala are currently on +3 while PAOK have +2. It's tight.

The Greek side were cruising towards the knockout stages but taking only one point from their last two games hurt their progression hopes.

Răzvan Lucescu's side were beaten at home by Copenhagen on matchday four before a goalless draw against Bratislava in fifth round of matches.

Lincoln, meanwhile, have long been eliminated from the race, having lost all their group fixtures so far, conceding 15 times in total, including four each in their last two games.

They will be hoping to get a point on the board before closing out their campaign.
