Big derby game between league leaders Anorthosis and title favourites APOEL. Anorthosis is on top of the league with 36 points and APOEL is 6 points behind them in 4th place but APOEL has played 2 games less.

Anorthosis is still undefeated this season with 10 wins and 6 draws. They have a very good defense but their offense has only the 6th best record in the league with 24 goals in 16 games (1.5 per game). At home they are 5-3-0 this season. Against the other “big” teams they have a 1-4-0 record beating APOEL and drawing all the other games. Anorthosis will miss their key defender Schildenfeldt due to suspension. He is a big loss for the team.

APOEL has not been at their best this season but they come to this match after a 8-game unbeaten run (6W 2D). They are 4-3-1 away from home this season with their only loss coming against AEK Larnaca. They have played only 4 games against the “big” teams this season with a 1-1-2 record losing to Anorthosis and AEK and drawing with AEL and beating Omonoia. APOEL did lose to Anorthosis early in the season but they are better now so the match should be close. APOEL will be without Ioannou, Rueda, Milanov, Vinicius and Waterman from this match.

Anorthosis won the first match 0-1 at the GSP. Last season the teams met 4 times with APOEL winning twice and twice the match ended in a draw.

Prediction:

This should be a tight game which APOEL should not lose. Schildenfeld missing from the Anorthosis defense is a big loss for them. APOEL to win is the main pick.
