Due to Greece’s UEFA coefficient ranking, only the fourth placed Super League club is guaranteed a Europa League berth for next season. However, if PAOK or AEK win the Greek Cup, something which appears very likely, then the team in fifth place will also be gifted a Europa League place. Atromitos are over the hills and far away in fourth position, but the second Europa League spot is very much up for grabs.

Incredibly, just three points separate fifth placed Xanthi and Levadiakos in eleventh. Both Panionios and Asteras Tripolis are level on points with Xanthi, while fallen Athenian giants Panathinaikos, PAS Giannina and Panetolikos are also firmly in the Europa League mix. Just to make matters even more tasty, plenty of the clubs mentioned above will play against each other during the final six weeks of the Super League season.

Current Super League standings between fifth and eleventh place:

5. Xanthi, 32 points
6. Panionios, 32 points
