The fact that Anorthosis goes to the last match of the league without having a European ticket secured, you can say it is a failure. If he does not succeed, we will talk about the absolute patratrak. This will be the case if a team that started with the goal of doubling stays out of Europe, in a year, in fact, with five European tickets.
Once its team Famagusta did not get the double at the headquarters of APOEL (1-1), not only did not enter the position of “driver” for the second place leading to the Champions League, but, in addition, will play its exit to Europe in the “final” with on Mars, which will be held next Saturday (21/5, 19:00) at “Antonis Papadopoulos”.
If nothing else, the blue and whites go to the match that will judge their entire season with two big advantages. On the one hand, at home, on the other hand, they are comfortable with a draw thanks to the +2 from the “Light Brigade” in the standings. This does not mean that Timur Ketspaia's team will play for “X”, as in this case the chances of “pressing” it will be increased.
The Georgian coach is finally called upon to leave the words about a more wronged team and so on. (only he and his players are responsible for the fact that although there were clear possibilities the team is not higher) and to do what is necessary, so that in the last match of the year the “Lady” gets only her third victory in the playoffs , to play for the third consecutive season in Europe and to claim its second “stuck” participation in a group stage – even from the difficult “path”. Difficult, as in case the combination of results that will send it to the Champions League does not come (APOEL defeat by Paphos, AEK does not win against Apollon) will play in the Conference League (from the second round) and will need three qualifiers to enter in a group, without having a second chance in case of exclusion. In view of the decisive match with Aris, Ketspaia does not count on the punished Korea and Novotny, with Risvanis expected to replace the Cypriot defender in the starting lineup.
