The “blues” won but… did not convince
Apollon beat Karmiotissa yesterday 1-0 at the “Alfamega” stadium, in a match where Vladan Milojevic made his debut on the “blue” bench. The Serbian coach has been in Kolossi for a few days, he saw the team's problems and will try to fix them.
Bad lies, the “blue” won yesterday but did not impress anyone game point. The solution came through a “magical” free kick by Mathieu Valbuena, who showed his quality and gave Apollon his first three points this season.
Subsequently, the Limassol team surrounded the area but could not threaten effectively. Apart from some long shots by Kostake, who in general had a good presence, there was a clear problem with the final pass and also the finishing of the footballers.
Yes, Apollonas was better than the Polemidia team, but with the fragile 1-0 until the end he almost paid for his missed opportunities. If they didn't have Leuwenberg on a good night, maybe the equalizer would have come, since there were also gaps in the defense, with Karmiotissa threatening and the Dutch goalkeeper making some crucial interventions.
So, in his camp Apollos should take full advantage of the break and work on all the areas that need improvement. Vladan Milojevic will get to know his players better with the aim of the team being improved upon the resumption of the league.
