What logic says about Mario Jurčević
Good and bad news were hidden in Apollo's official update regarding the wounded before Paphos. As Fanourios Constantinou reported to SPORT FM 95.0, Yurcevich and Kmrenchik are considered normal, Psychas and Sagal remain out (after the new interruption he will return), while Kol remains doubtful.
With these data, we expect that we will have at least one change in the central area, as it seems that the Argentine will be on the bench at best. Spoliaric is the favorite to take his place, however should Vladan Milojevic opt for a more attacking approach then we may see Perez flank Hambo and Valbuena. However, as we wrote in our previous report, the Israeli is also claiming the position of the French midfielder due to the management of the experienced ace. So one possibility is to see a trio in the midfield with Hambo, Danilo and Perez…
Regarding those who are definitely available, Krmenczyk is expected to start from the bench, since Marques does not come out of the lineup, while we cannot say that the same applies to the left end of the defense. The Slovenian full-back has been a key option for his position since the start of the season and once he's fit… logic says he'll be back in the starting XI. Indeed, Malekkidis left a positive impression against AEZ, sending the message that he gives depth to the roster, but in reality the former Osijek footballer has the first say.
Of course, all this is nothing but scenarios, with each one… having its own probability of confirmation. The final say undoubtedly belongs to the Serbian coach, who continues to keep his cards closed, so we will have to wait until match day.
