Even the most optimistic friend of Omonia, until a few weeks ago, might not have believed that his team will be the only one in mid-April that will be firmly in the contention of both domestic titles. And yet, with the improvement presented by the greens, competitively and psychologically, since the time that Giannis Anastasiou took over the responsibility of the technical leadership, they manage to hold fast.

After the obvious victory in the first leg of the semi-finals of the cup against Aris (3-0), in Limassol, they are in arms with their third consecutive appearance in the final of the competition, so that they have the opportunity to maintain the achievements (s.s. . took the title in this particular institution the previous two years). At the same time, the Nicosia team, being in third place in the standings, four points behind the leader APOEL and three behind the second-placed AEK, retain hopes of climbing up to the highest podium in the standings.

The fora with Anastasiou

A typical example of the change that Yiannis Anastasiou brought to Omonia are the matches against Aris. A team that, in seven consecutive games, the shamrocks did not win once (Five times Aris won, two draws), with the Greek technician they found a way to drag out the “Light Brigade”. In the debut of the 51-year-old coach on the bench, they prevailed at the “Alphamega” stadium with 2-1, to make it three with two hat-tricks in a few days. Last Saturday Omonia won 3-0 at GSP for the championship and on Wednesday another victory came with the same score in Limassol for the cup. More generally, under the instructions of Anastasios, Omonia, in a total of eight games in the two competitions, has six wins, one draw and one loss.

Before the rematch of the cup next Wednesday (17/04), Omonia is called upon to maintain its chances for the best, passing victoriously from “Antonis Papadopoulos” in Sunday's match (14/04, 19:30) against Rectification. The greens will seek the third consecutive success in the meetings with “Kyria” (both were in GSP), but they had not won in the last two visits to her stadium. In particular, they had lost at the stadium of Larnaca in the match of the first round of the regular season, as well as in their only meeting at “Antonis Papadopoulos” last season. It is important for Omonia to get the points, not only to continue the hunt for the leaders, but also to maintain the positions that give a European ticket, since Aris is just one point behind them.
