This is the big match today where two teams who have had a poor start to their seasons meet each other in Larnaca. Anorthosis got knocked out of Europe already in the first qualifying round whereas APOEL got knocked out at the playoff round on penalties. Also the league has not started that well for either team at least performance wise.

Anorthosis beat Doxa 0-1 in the opening round but has then failed to beat any of their following games against FC Pafos (1-1), AEL (0-1) or bottom club Alki (0-0). Anorthosis has had huge problems in scoring goals and this also led them to sack their head coach Ronny Levy at the end of September. Against other Top-6 teams at home Anorthosis had a 2-5-3.

APOEL beat Ermis and Nea Salamina away from home by one goal but in both games their performances were below par. Then the big shock came as Doxa beat APOEL 2-5 at the GSP stadium and just showed what big problems APOEL is having defensively and offensively. APOEL then also lost last weekend to AEK Larnaca the Cyprus Super Cup on penalties. Against other Top-6 teams away from home APOEL had a 6-2-2 record.

Both teams are struggling with goals a bit so main pick is under 2.5 goals. A draw is very close as neither team will want to lose this match.
