The substitutes of the punished and optimism with Panagiotou
Omonoia managed to get the victory in the derby with APOEL, however it also brought losses. The “greens” will go to Limassol to face AEL with two very important absences, since two footballers are suspended.
Specifically, Simic and Bashirou after the red cards they received in “eternal” will be absent from Saturday's derby at “Alfamega”. So Sofronis Augusti will have to prepare his plan without these two players who so far stand out in the season.
As for the midfielder from the Comoros, it is expected that Charalambous will be in his place, who had very good presence in the last derby. Kousoulos will be placed next to him, while it is possible that Alexander Franson will also get his first competitive minutes.
The void left by Veliko Simic is likely to be filled by Loizou, who is counting down to his return. in the basic shape. Nevertheless, it is not excluded that Zachariou will find himself at the right end of the attack and it is exclusively the decision of Augustis which of the two he will choose.
One thing that the Cypriot coach can smile about is the return of Nikolas Panagiotou, who was absent from the team. The Cypriot defender is slowly getting back into regular training and has started preparing for his return.
Of course it will take time for the international stopper to fully recover, but the fact that he will be training with the rest of the team is hopeful message.
