APOEL: Pay for bad management

Must read

This time Vladan Milojevic did not make the right moves

ΑΠΟΕΛ: Πλorρωσε την κακor δια χεΙριση

APOEL did not manage to start with a victory in its effort in the final phase, staying in a 1-1 draw with Omonia in a strong game with passion and intensity, which with better management in the 2nd half he could have won.

In the 1st half the “blue and yellow” played quite well, they seemed determined to win and were focused on the plan. They had 62% possession, won 5 corners against none of their opponents and had 4 finals (3 on target) against (2) typically the home team. They managed to take the lead and go into the second half with excellent conditions.

In the second forty-five minutes, APOEL was not good at all and instead of finding a way to reach a second goal, they accepted the draw, losing the first points in the second phase. Omonia became more aggressive (up to the 79th minute they made all 5 changes), took risks and forced APOEL to defend to maintain their lead.

Here we believe that Vladan Milojevic is responsible. The game management was not what it should have been. We praised the Serbian coach many times because he deserved it, but this time, his moves on the “chessboard” of the derby, we believe were wrong. It happens to the best coaches sometimes that they are not on their day. This in no way detracts from their value.

The three players in midfield looked tired but he took too long to make his changes which, when made, did not help. He put in Dhvali (85') and played with a trio in defense. It didn't work out for him and he paid for it with the equalizing goal 1 minute later. From the extremes, APOEL was not as creative as other times. However, Marquinhos and Dogala remained on the bench and could help for a second goal.
