In matchday 1, we already have a candidate for the worst match of the season as Xanthi and Lamia played to a goalless draw at the Pigadia. The result benefits the Superleague’s newly promoted side, who are favored to be relegated at the end of the season. It was a historic point for Lamia as they played their first game in club history in the Greek First Division, grabbing a point in a traditionally difficult stadium.

On the flip side, Xanthi seemed completely unready for the start of the SuperLeague season. The Thracian club are in dire need of an attacker after losing last year's second highest scorer in the Superleague, Hamza Younes. The hosts wasted the few chances that were presented to them and have until the end of the month to make enhancements to the roster.
