The new transfer acquisitions of AEK, Tomovic, Espinosa and Giursko, are making a road race to raise their level of physical condition, so that they are considered ready to be thrown into the “battle” with the resumption of the championship. Three players intended for key players, who were acquired in the last days of the transfer window in order to fill the gaps observed in the team in the match of the premiere with Doxa.
Tomovic and Espinosa played in most of the last friendly with ENP, however the intensities of a friendly match are completely different compared to the tensions that will exist in the upcoming derby with Omonia. Except for the unexpected, the Serbian stopper and the Spanish midfielder are expected to start as key players against Omonia.
On the contrary, the Hungarian winger Giursko was judged unprepared and did not take time to participate in the last friendly. His readiness will be clear in the coming days. Thiago, who has been suffering from a fracture in recent weeks, is also racing to catch the derby of the 2nd round. The 34-year-old midfielder did not play in the match of the premiere, not even in the two friendly matches with Aris and ENP. That is why it is considered extremely difficult to manage to cover the lost ground and to be completely ready by next Sunday.
As for the newly acquired right back Rosales, he did not take part in the last defeat of the National Venezuela from Peru with 1-0, staying on the bench. The last game with the national team of his country is next Friday morning (10/9) against Paraguay away. It is considered impossible for Rosales to return to Cyprus in time and to be included in the mission of AEK for the match with Omonia. Logically, Tandy will take the place of the right back.
The one who stood out in the two friendlies that took place due to the interruption of the championship was Konstantinos Anastasiou. The 22-year-old midfielder, who played as a substitute in the match of the 1st matchday with Doxa, had some impressive actions in the two friendlies with Aris and ENP, sending the message to David Katalas that he is entitled to more opportunities in the continuation of the championship.
