The fact that this year's championship is characterized as competitive and full of surprises, was evident from the first games. Teams that you expected to be furious did not perform as expected, while others that were theoretically… underdogs, made the fans applaud them.
The current opponent of AEL was not characterized as an outsider, but neither was it a champion. However, no one expected that Aris would be at the top of the standings and the biggest surprise. He may have invested a lot in the summer, but he comes from the 2nd Division. And what with it; He showed how he can make the surprise and why not look the elite of Cypriot football in the eyes.
Kerkez knows all this and prepared his team accordingly. Tonight (19:00) in the afternoon, as a typical home team, AEL hosts the greens of Limassol with the aim of returning to success. The draw with Ethnikos and the way it came, hurt everyone in the blue and yellow edifice and there is no room for new losses. AEL will have the opportunity with a possible victory to overtake Aris in the standings, since they are separated by two points.
At the same time, the players of Dusan Kerkez will have the opportunity to react after the loss of points they had with the National, something that will help them in the match and psychologically.
Individual defense mistakes are the main factors that need improvement. Besides, these were paid by AEL in the draw with the Achniotiki team. As for the games, Euler's absence is certain, but no spectacular changes are expected in the lineup compared to the last game.
