With Simon's stamp, AEK acquired an “identity” and the right to fight!

From a position of strength, at least from Anorthosis, which is considered one of its main competitive teams in this year's marathon, AEK enters the playoffs. Not only because it opened the margin of difference from Famagusta to +8 (it will become +5 if Anorthosis wins the postponed game with AEZ), but also because the yellow-greens regained, at least according to the current data, an advantage in the event of a draw.

It was yet another professional victory for Ran Ben Simon's band. It took her about 15 minutes of AEK to adjust to the system change on the Anorthosis side. And she got lucky with Chiko's great chance in the 13th minute. From then on, she equalized the match, but creatively she had problems, since she lacked good ideas, while the suffocating pressing exerted by the blue and whites made it difficult for the Larnaca team to develop.

In the replay, the goal of Pere Pons (3rd this year in the league for the Spanish midfielder) at the beginning of the replay gave (also) a psychological advantage to AEK, who put pressure on Anorthosis wanting to take advantage of the momentum to “clean up” the game with a second goal. She created the chances, but found in front of her an excellent Arboleda.

1-0 remained until the end, with AEK in the last stages being more cautious and throwing Ben Simon into the “battle” and Tomovic, shielding the rear of his team (he played with three stoppers in the last quarter).

It is a victory (the 12th in the last 16 league games) with multiple benefits for AEK. In addition to its great ranking importance, it is at the same time a success that gives good psychology and confidence to the team in view of consecutive derbies in the playoffs. With Simon, he acquired an “identity” but above all the right to fight for it.

After the home defeat by Apollon, AEK showed character, scoring two consecutive important victories in derby games in the space of three days. !
