In the 2007-2008 season Panathinaikos played for 49th consecutive time in Greece's top division, Super League. They also competed in UEFA CUP and Greek Cup. Season started with Jose Peseiro as team manager. In summer of 2007 many players left the club including Igor Bišćan and Victor Sanchez who hadn't fulfilled the expectations of Panathinaikos' fans with their performance. On the other end the return of Giorgos Karagounis after four years pulled the spotlight and considered one of the most important signings of the 2007 summer transfer window. Panathinaikos also signed Brazilian midfielder Marcelo Mattos from Corinthians, Dame N'Doye from Academica, Josu Sarriegi from Athletic Bilbao and some other players to help the team win its first championship in four years and celebrate the club's centesimal anniversary in the most appropriate way.

The championship began with Panathinaikos collecting seven points in the first three matchdays, having already played two derbies against Olympiacos (0-0) and PAOK (2-0).
