PAOK FC will take on EA Guingamp for a place in the UEFA Europa League round of 32 on matchday six, with little to separate the sides standing second and third in Group K.

PAOK will progress with a win and bow out with a draw or a defeat.

Guingamp can afford to draw in Greece, since that would leave them with a positive head-to-head record against PAOK.
