You could consider this as a relegation battle fight as both teams are newly promoted and in Cyprus, newly promoted teams have a hard time staying up. Despite their “Newly promoted” status, their performances have been encouraging. Olympiakos has made several good defensive displays and they have been beaten only once in their opening six games (1-4-1). Alki Oroklini might not have won since their opening round match against Ethnikos Achna but since then they have faced three big teams in Omonia, APOEL and Anorthosis and played very even games against all of them.

We expected Olympiakos to be our main candidate for relegation after they did not strengthen their team much after last season in the 2nd Division but their performances have been good at least defensively. So far they have met three of the big teams having first lost to AEK, they drew with both Apollon and Omonia. They will need to improve on their offense and ball possession a bit more as they cannot count on counter attacking style against all opposition. Also, draws will not be enough for survival. Olympiakos has all players available for this match.

Alki invested a lot more since their promotion and they have gotten some good players. They do not rely just on counter attacking as they have good, creative players up front who can score also. This month will be very important to Alki as they face 3 teams who are also fighting to avoid relegation and they will need to get at least a couple of wins out of those to improve their chances of survival. Alki will miss only Vasiliev from this match.

Last season both teams won the away game against each other. They also played a friendly during the summer which Alki won 2-0.


Alki has more offensive options and Olympiakos cannot just defend here. Away win.
