AEL got their first win against a “big-6” team in the last round where they beat Omonoia. Now they will have to do it again against a much better team. Both teams are fighting for European spots for next season so this should be an interesting match. It was less than a month ago when these teams met at the Tsirion with Anorthosis winning 0-1.

AEL team news:

The reason why AEL is not in the title fight is because they have not been able to win the big games. Like we wrote earlier, their win against Omonoia was their first this season. The biggest reason for this is that they have not been able to find a balance between defense and offense. In the beginning of the season, their defense was the best in the league but they did not score goals. They then got some new players into their offense and started to score goals. Unfortunately their defense was no longer that solid. Now they have a new head coach in Dusan Kerkez and with the win over Omonia, the atmosphere has improved. At home AEL has been very good this season with a 8-3-3 record. For this match Avraam is a doutbt.

Anorthosis team news:

Anorthosis suffered a bad 1-2 home loss to Apollon in the last round. They are therefore already 10 points behind leaders Apollon so their title hopes are pretty much gone. They are 3rd now and with most likely the Top-4 going to Europe, they just need to keep AEL behind them in order to qualify. A draw would not be a bad result for them. On Wednesday they played Apollon again at home in the cup and drew 1-1. They might be a bit more tired in this match compared to their opponent. Having said that, Anorthosis is still undefeated in their away games this season with a 8-6-0 record.  Anorthosis will miss Struna from this match. Also Douglao is a doubt. If he cannot play, he will be a big loss for them team having played 23 out of the 28 games in central defense.
