With Anorthosis he achieved a magical overthrow, three days later Apollon fell “victim” of overthrow in the derby with Omonia and suffered his first defeat away from Limassol in this year's championship. The blue and whites entered the match strongly, scoring goals from the locker rooms. Nevertheless, their supremacy lasted until the middle of the half, essentially until the moment they conceded the equalizer.
Maybe things would have turned out differently, if the goal phase of Juste's goalpost had been scored at the beginning of the replay. The day before yesterday, the most dangerous creative player was not allowed to do many things, but he did them damage. When Letsiaks managed to press an area, having control of the ball and with the help of luck, he sent it into the net from the collision on Salai. Then, only in one phase with Dignini, the blue and whites seriously threatened Fabiano's home.
Of course, there was bitterness left in Apollon, as the coach Giannis Petrakis also mentioned, since at least he deserved not to lose. It is not a relief that he came down with several absences in the GSP. The coach, however, “won” a player, Katelaris, whom he included in the starting lineup for the first time since taking over. He was used as a cutter and, if nothing else, showed that he can respond better to the position of “six”, than Kyriakou and Denic.
The day before yesterday, Petrakis made Dabo key, the Senegalese was not as pressing towards the opponent's defense, as in the previous derby with Anorthosis. He showed again that Dignini scores with half a chance, who reached the nine goals in the championship. We also note the use of Gakpe as a change in the last minutes, despite the fact that he will probably be called for a contract termination in the near future. For the match with Ethnikos, tomorrow in Dasaki, the only player who will definitely return is Matei. Gianniotas has no right to participate, while Papunashvili may be on the mission.
