Aris has been in the relegation fight for the whole season but are better than their current position would suggest. Anorthosis is still undefeated and fighting for the title. They have been playing above expectations this season.

Aris has only managed once win the whole season and it was against bottom club Ethnikos Achnas. They have lost their last 3 games and in the last round they had a bad last minute loss to fellow strugglers Nea Salamina. Their biggest problem has been in scoring goals as they have scored the least amount of goals from all teams, only 10. Defensively they are better than some of the other bottom teams but it is the goals scored that count. At home they have gotten the majority of their points with a 1-3-3 record. Against other big teams they drew with APOEL and Omonoia at home but lost to AEK and AEL. The situation that Aris has led to some players leaving this week. Marco Aurelio, Medjedovic, Nicolita, Alexe and Joao Leonardo. On top of these Youssef is a doubt and Ionita is suspended. Christoforou is also injured. This means that there will be a lot of changes in the line-up.

Anorthosis is 2nd in the standings at the moment and they are still without a defeat. They have a 8-4-0 record and they have won their last 4 games. Defensively they have the 2nd best record with only 9 goals conceded in 15 games. Their offense is not as good as some of the other big teams with only 22 goals scored in those 15 games.  Away from home they are 4-3-0. Anorthosis will be without Palanca and Giorgos Papadopoulos.

In the first match Anorthosis won 1-0. Last season Anorthosis won both games also. The last time Aris won was back in 2014.

Prediction:

Anorthosis is just a slightly too big of a favourite here despite all the missing players that Aris has. Aris is desperate for points and their performances have not been that bad. Main pick though is under 2.5 goals but still considering Aris +1 Asian Handicap.
