With a full “arsenal” against Mars
APOEL football players returned to training today (16/11) with the team starting their preparations for the match against Aris. The “blue and yellow” are already three points above the team from Limassol and their only goal is to maintain their absolute streak even with the resumption of the championship. In fact, with a win against Aris, they will increase their difference to +6 from the “light brigade”, an extremely “tempting” scenario.
The team is in excellent playing condition and the break should certainly not stop them. her amazing run so far. Instead, the football players had time to rest and recharge their batteries to be ready for the continuation of the championship. In the 5 matches remaining for 2023, APOEL has 3 derbies with Aris, Omonoia and Paphos.
In the competition data, the “Galazokitirnoi” count all football players for the upcoming derby at “Alfamega” except one. Lucas Villaphanes was injured in the match of the 10th match against AEK and was left out of his team's previous match against AEL. The Argentine suffered a hematoma in the quadriceps with the time of his absence not yet specified. His condition will be evaluated these days, however his participation in the match against Ares is extremely doubtful.
From there on, Ricardo Sa Pinto will create his “plan” with all the other footballers at his disposal. However, the most likely scenario is that the Portuguese coach will not make many changes to his original squad.
