This match s played unusually on a Friday because APOEL will have an important Champions League match against Tottenham on Tuesday. Aris is without a win from their first 4 matches and are 13th. APOEL has 3 points from two matches and are 10th.

Aris had invested a lot for this season and they did not want a similar start as they had last season but so far it has not worked out as they have 2 draws and 2 losses from their opening matches. To be fair though, they have played 3 matches away from home and against top opposition Anorthosis and AEL 1-0. In the last round they came back to equalize on added time 3-3 against newly promoted Alki Oroklini. In their only home match this season they drew 1-1 with Nea Salamis. If you do not count the last round match against Alki, Aris´ defense has been pretty solid against top opposition. Against AEL they also managed to have some good chances but against Anorthosis they did not. Aris will get back Ngolok and Radu for this match.

This is a difficult match for APOEL. They have a glimmering match against Tottenham at home on Tuesday but at the same time they lost to Anorthosis in the last round and they cannot afford to lose anymore points so early in the season. APOEL will still miss from this match Efrem, Ioannou, Bertoglio and Oar. Winger Sallai might be rested in this match.

Since 1996, Aris has never been able to beat APOEL. Last season APOEL beat Aris 5-0 at home and 0-3 at Tsirion. The last time Aris managed to get even a draw at home was in 2007.

Prediction:

APOEL should win this match but there is value on the under 2.5 goals. Aris has been able to defend well against Anorthosis and AEL and could do it again here.
