Alki almost coasted through to the 2nd Division title last season and they will want to survive in the 1st Div this season. The level difference between the divisions is huge and all promoted teams basically have to get themselves a new squad in order to compete. It is always a gamble on what players you choose and if you choose wrong, you will be relegated.

Players in: MF Chafik Tigroudja (Les Herbiers), DF Abdelaye Diakite (Siracusa), GK Rafael Quinones (Ormideia), MF Jean-Baptiste Pierazzi (Paris), FW Adrian Patulea (Pafos FC), MF Bilal Hamdi (Sedan), FW Radoslav Vasilev (Septemvri Sofia), DF Panayiotis Loizides (Omonia Aradippou), MF Andreas Hapeshis (APOEL U21), FW Alpha Toure, DF Kyriakos Aretas (APOEL), GK Giorgos Tasouris, MF Petros Psychas, MF Marios Andreou, DF Marios Koshias, DF Christos Kallis, DF Bernard Onganga Itoua

Players out: MF Andreas Sofokleous (loan return to Omnoia), MF Demetris Christaki (ASIL), FW Andreas Papathanasiou (Onisilos Sotira), FW Roman Davigny (DF Christos Kallis), loan return to APOEL), DF Johan Letzelter (released), GK Martynas Matijoska (released), MF Pablo Suarez (released), DF Stavros Nicolaou (ASIL)

There is a tight group between teams 10-14 but we feel Pafos, Doxa and Ethnikos have a bit more quality than Alki, so Alki will be the last team to relegate directly.

Prediction 13th.
