Title chasing Apollon will host the biggest relegation candidate Ethnikos Achna. Apollon is currently 4th with 19 points from 9 games and Ethnikos Achna is bottom with only 5 points from 12 games.

Apollon lost on Thursday to Lyon 4-0 and they also lost their chance to get into the knock out stages. This was also the first match where they failed to score a goal this season. That is a run of 20 games that has come to an end. They play nice offensive football but that comes with a cost of sometimes conceding goals. In their 21 games (All competitions), they have kept only 4 clean sheets. Apollon is currently the best home team in the league having won all their 4 games so far with a 14-4 goal difference. Anton Maglica was taken off injured in the Lyon game and he is out for a month. They do not miss any other players.

Ethnikos Achna is last in the league which was to be expected. They have played better than expected but just have not gotten more points than 5. They are waiting for January to start as they can then sign more players who could help them stay in this league. They hope that they would not be that far behind when that happens. Ethnikos will miss from this match Iluridze and Eduardo Pincelli. Their top scorer Nikolai Kipiani is a doubt.

Ethnikos has been a tough opponent for Apollon in the last couple of seasons. Last season this match ended 3-2 with Ethnikos leading 0-2 already with Apollon scoring twice in added time to win. The match in Achna ended 2-2. The last time Ethnikos beat Apollon at the Tsirion was in 2014.

Prediction:

Apollon to win but both teams to score is the main pick.
