Omonia: Gela has explanations

Must read

Looking bad and annoying the world

You are coming off a wide win with a positive showing in the premiere. The game begins with the best omens. You're just ahead at 2'. You equalize, but you lead again with a two-goal difference until 75', (may Andronikos Kakoullis be well), but you end the match with a loss of two points! And all this with thousands of people on your side who were there because they love the team, believe in it (although it hasn't given it any strong sign in the matches so far) and are eagerly waiting for the victory.

Note that Omonia yesterday played its seventh official match of the year, while Karmiotissa even had a new team in terms of material, played only two. Karmiotissa fought hard, tied the match and deservedly got the point.

 All this shows not just a team lacking personality but something worse. A team with a lack of self-confidence. How else to explain the “turnaround” of a game where they were favorites and even after twice securing a lead in the score?

All that has been mentioned is not a technical issue. They are broader ones that come from incomplete team building. Yesterday, Omonia was bad in midfield. The blocking function was insufficient – zero tensions, lost duels – while the medium-range central backs were constantly exposed to the opponents. In general, Omonia was a vulnerable team. The moves from the bench helped, but the essence did not change.

As for the statistical side, Omonia had 54 percent of the ball possession, 11 final attempts with 4 on target and Karmiotissa 12 finals with 11 on target.

The… gela not only deprived the team of two points, but also “alienated” the fans who were waiting for the second consecutive victory. In the end they erupted in rants against the management.

“Today we have this group of players and we have to improve it.” Sophronis Augusti.

The “bet” of the “greens” is to cover the gaps in the roster in an ideal way.
