AEL saw their 12-game unbeaten streak to come to an end on Wednesday as they lost 2-1 to leaders APOEL. They are now 5 points from an Euro Cup position. Omonoia lost also on Wednesday to Apollon 1-0 and they are now 4 points behind AEL and only 5 points ahead of Doxa for that important Top-6 position.

AEL is one of the best home teams in the league as they have lost only once all season (0-1 Pafos). They have won 6 and drawn 3 with a goal difference of 15-3. Their game plan has been to keep the defense solid. This has been needed as their offense has not been scoring that many goals. During this transfer window they have focused on this by acquiring some offensive players in midfielder Manuel Torres from Greuther Furth, Forward Denilson from Chinese club Zheijang Greentown and Spanish forward Joan Roman from Braga B. At the same time striker Arruabarrena left the club. It will be interesting to see if this changes the playing style and if they can score a bit more goals. AEL will miss some key players though in this match with both Lafrance, Mesca and Soares suspended.

Omonoia played on this same stadium just on Wednesday and lost 1-0 to Apollon. They will now want to do better as they need points desperately if they still want to get back to the Euro Cup fight. They are 4-2-4 on their away games so far this season. They have played only two away games against other Top-6 opponents and they have lost both; 5-0 to AEK and 1-0 Apollon. Omonoia will miss both main central defenders William Soares and Katelaris due to suspension.
