From the start of the season, we did not believe that Alki had any chances to survive this season, but now they have earned 10 points from their last 5 games and they are playing pretty good. AEL is still in the title hunt and a win here would move them just 1 point behind leaders APOEL.

Alki team news:

Alki is not going to climb so much that they would threaten the Top-6 but they are earning points from the bottom-6 teams with a good rate. They also earned a valuable 0-0 draw against Anorthosis in the last game, but they did get a bit lucky there with the Famagusta team missing a couple of clear chances. Still they will go into this game with good confidence and with feeling that they can get something here. Alki lost to AEL 5-1 in the first half of the season, but that was when their defense was not as organised as it is now. They have conceded the most amount of goals in the league (29), which is an average of 1.93 goals per game, but only 5 in their last 5 games. They have also scored the least amount of goals (12), but 8 of those have come in the last 5 games. Alki will miss only Marios Elia from this match due to suspension.

AEL Team news:

This is a match that AEL should and must win, if they want to keep pace with leaders APOEL. AEL has not been playing as well as they did at the start of the season, despite winning 4 out of their last 5 games. They beat Pafos in the last game 1-0 but needed a spectacular strike from Makris to do it. As a positive note, they managed to keep their first clean sheet since they beat AEK Larnaca 0-1 on the 3rd of November. Since that game, they had played 6 games where they had conceded 16 goals. It has only been by the thanks to their offense and a bit of luck that they have not lost more games. AEL will be without Kyriakou, Mytides, Benitez, Zdravkovski, Adamovic and Joan Roman.

Prediction:

Both teams to score is the main pick.
