This is the first big Limassol Derby of the season. AEL is 5th with 6 points from 3 games and Apollon is 8th with 4 points from two games. Both teams play at the same stadium so there is no home advantage.

AEL has started their season the same way as they did last season which is with a lot of 1-0 results. Their defense is good and they beat Aris and Doxa 1-0 without too many problems. Against AEK in Larnaca they were able to keep AEK from scoring chances but were unable to do anything to an amazing free kick and they lost 1-0. Their biggest problem is their offense. They do not create enough chances and when they do, their forwards are not putting those chances in. AEL will Brazilian midfielder Arthur from this match after he got a red card in the match against AEK.

Apollon has played only two matches in the league and they have not played that well. They drew with Olympiakos in their opener and were behind against Ermis for the most of the match but came back to beat them 4-2. They have a real treat for them next week as they travel to Goodison Park to face Everton in the Europa League. That is where they have played well this season earning a draw against Lyon in their last match. Apollon might have one eye in that game but a derby is a derby and important to fans. As good news, Apollon will get back winger and Captain Papoullis and central defender Angeli back from injury list to this match. The only one actually missing is the Apollon head coach who will watch the match from the stands after his expulsion in their last match against Ermis.

The Derby games have been tight. Last season both teams won their “home” game and the two others ended in a 1-1 draw.


The value is with the home team here. It is a Derby game and anything can happen so 1X and under 2.5 goals are our picks.
