This is another big Derby game and it might determine a lot how this Championship round playoffs will go for both teams. AEK is 10 points behind leaders APOEL and a loss here would certainly take away their chances for the title. Anorthosis is 7 points behind the leaders but a loss here might also be too much. Anorthosis has been a tough opponent this season for AEK. They drew the first match at AEK Arena and then beat AEK at home.

AEK has been the best home team in the league and the only team that has not lost at home this season. They are 10-3-0 at the AEK Arena. If their away form would have been even a little bit better, they would be fighting for the title still. It has been the inconsistency on their away games that has caused them a lot. They dominate at home but away from home they concede easily. Out of their 24 goals that they have conceded, 17 have been away from home. At home the same number is 7. AEK played in the Cup during the week but beat 2nd Division team PAEEK easily 7-0. AEK will be without top goalscorer Taulemesse, Tryols, Murillo and Tete from this important derby match.

Anorthosis has been a very good defensive side all season. They have conceded only 17 goals in 26 matches with only Apollon having a better defensive record. Their biggest problem in the beginning was scoring goals and because of this, many of their matches ended in a low scoring draw. In January they acquired Michal Ďuriš and he has already scored 5 goals in 5 games. With this goal scoring threat, Anorthosis could be a big player in this title fight. Anorthosis is also still undefeated in their away games this season and they are coming straight from a 0-1 win against another big team, AEL.

Prediction:

Anorthosis seems to be in better form that AEK but it is a difficult place to play at the AEK Arena. Under 2.5 goals is the main pick with Taulemesse also missing from AEK.
