PAOK’s Impressive Unbeaten Streak in Germany
PAOK drew away to Schalke in their second leg match for the UEFA Europa League Round of 32 and maintained their 36-year unbeaten streak in Germany.
PAOK have yet to taste defeat in Germany since September 16, 1981 when they fell to Eintracht Frankfurt 2-0 in the first round of the UEFA Cup Winners Cup.
Since then, the Dikefalos tou Vorra have played in Germany on four occasions, recording three draws and one win. PAOK drew away to Bayern Munich (0-0) in the 1983/1984 UEFA Cup, drew away to Schalke (1-1) in 2013/2014 UEFA Champions League qualifying, and most recently drew Schalke (1-1) in Gelsenkirchen on Thursday in their UEFA Europa League Round of 32 second leg fixture. Unfortunately for PAOK, the result was not enough to progress to the next stage of the competition.
The only win in recent years on German soil came in last year’s Europa League when they defeated Borussia Dortmund 0-1 in the group stages of the competition.
