This is a big derby game between two teams fighting for the top positions. AEL and APOEL both have 26 points but APOEL has played 1 game less. They are 4th and 3rd espectively but AEL has played 2 games and APOEL 3 games less than leaders AEK who have 35 points.

AEL lost last week in the Cup to Ayia Napa but in the league they are 6 games without a loss with 5 wins and 1 draw. They have the best defensive record in the league with only 7 goals conceded in 13 games. Offensively they have gotten better. They have scored 17 goals but 10 of those have come in the last 5 games. They have a 5-1-1 home record this season losing only to FC Pafos. They have all players available.

APOEL finished their Champions League campaign last week at Wembley and they can now focus completely on the Cypriot league and the defense of their title. They started a bit slow in the league but are now on a 5-game winning streak with a 19-3 goal difference in those games. They are currently 4-2-1 in their away games but their record against the big teams so far this season has been poor. They beat Omonia but have lost to both AEK and Anorthosis so far. They need to start winning these big games if they want to retain their title. APOEL has all the players available with the exception of the long term injured.

Last season the teams met 4 times in the league with AEL winning the first one at home but losing the other 3. In the Cup both games ended in a draw with APOEL going through on away goal.

Prediction:

AEL has been a good team recently and they have met tougher opposition than APOEL. This should be a tight game so under 2.5 goals is our main pick. AEL Double chance is another.
