APOEL leads the league by 1 point difference to both Limassol sides Apollon and AEL. They now have a chance to extend that lead to 4 points against relegation threatened Alki Oroklini. Alki is currently 10th with a 6 point gap to bottom club Ermis. The teams met earlier in the season with APOEL winning 2-4 in Larnaca.

APOEL dealt really well the fact that they missed their best player Moussa Al-Tamari for the past few games. APOEL has won their last 7 games in the league and last 9 considering all competitions. The atmosphere in the club is good again after a poor start to the season and the belief is there that they can yet again win the league. At home, APOEL has been especially dominating. Since their 0-0 draw against AEL, they have won their last 6 home games where they have only conceded 1 goal and that was against Apollon. The goal difference in those 6 games has been 20-1. Every single of those matches was won by at least 2 goals in each. APOEL will miss Ioannou due to suspension and most likely De Vincenti and Al-Tamari also.

Alki Oroklini had a really tough start to the season and even though they have improved, they are not yet out of the woods. In Cyprus, a 6-point difference can easily be caught. Alki has failed to win in their last 3 games. They drew with Anorthosis and lost to AEL 1-3. Their poorest performance was against FC Pafos in the last round where they conceded 3 goals to draw 3-3. They try to be defensive away from home, but most often it just results them not scoring. Their 2-4 win over Ermis was an exception as both teams play at the same stadium. Acosta and Starokin are doubts as is also new signing Weeks.

Prediction:

APOEL to win to nil is the main pick. It will be at least by 2 goals.
