Donio's terrific ball at 1-0 was one of the highlights of the match
Apollo achieved a great victory on Monday afternoon, beating AEK 2-1 at the “Alfamega” stadium, in a game with a shocking finale.
A major player for Antone's team was Amr Warda. The Egyptian created his side's first goal and scored the second in stoppage time, prompting the crowd and his coach to erupt in wild celebrations.
Apollo put on a spirited display and managed to get a great result, despite playing with one less player for almost a half. Justifiably, Warda was the player who stole all the lights, but Donio also had an important contribution. The razor ball he made towards Ward in the 63rd minute was one of the highlights of yesterday's match. Ganezos ran and entered the area, managing to get the “rebound” on Pitta's shot and score for the Limassol team.
With his victory, Apollon “locked” his presence in the first group, at the same time reducing the difference from Aris and Paphos to a single digit number. Certainly, the difference between the two teams is quite big, however the “blue and white” will make their effort in the 11 remaining games and wherever it comes out.
However, since there are another 33 points on the table, Apollon he will try to exhaust all the mathematical possibilities he has to claim a European ticket, although his mission is extremely difficult.
