Looking to make it two wins from two games in Group F of the UEFA Europa Conference League, PAOK play host to Slovan Bratislava at the Toumba Stadium on Thursday.

The hosts were denied an opening-day victory two weeks ago and will be looking to bounce back from that defeat.

PAOK picked up their third win on the trot last Sunday as they claimed a 2-0 victory over AEK Athens in the Greek Super League.

Prior to that, Razvan Lucescu's men picked up successive wins over Asteras Tripolis and Panetolikos after suffering defeat in their league opener.

PAOK now return to the UEFA Europa Conference League where they claimed an opening-day 2-0 win over Lincoln Red Imps in Group F two weeks ago.

Meanwhile, Slovan Bratislava returned to winning ways last time out as they claimed a 3-0 win over FK Senica in the Slovakian Superliga.

Prior to that, Vladimir Weiss' men failed to taste victory in each of their last four games across all competitions, picking up two draws and losing two.

Slovan Bratislava will now look to carry on the momentum and bounce back from their defeat against Copenhagen in their group curtain-raiser.
