Three Greek teams will be in Friday’s Europa League playoff draw including PAOK, AEK, and Panathinaikos. PAOK and Panathinaikos eliminated Olimpik Donetsk and Gabala, respectively, in the third qualifying round while AEK was demoted to the Europa League after falling to CSKA Moscow in Champions League qualifying.

Out of the three sides, PAOK will be the only seeded team while both Panathinaikos and AEK will be unseeded and will have theoretically tougher opponents. Panathinaikos just missed out on being seeded as the Prasini will be the highest ranked unseeded team in the draw.
