Giannis Pittas continues to expand his scoring record (the previous one was in the nine goals with the Union in the 2018/19 season) and in the Apollon derby with AEK he scored his 12th goal for the current season.
The 24-year-old ace of the Limassol team even climbed to the top of the league scorers 'table, where… he lives with three other players, his Apollon teammate Nicolas Dignini, Anorthosis' Giorgi Kvilitaia and Doxa's Berat Sadik.
And the longer Pittas continues his… violin, the less strange it will seem to us the possibility of ending the season with a Cypriot top scorer. Something that has been happening for 18 years!
The last time the top scorer of the league was a Cypriot was in the 2002/03 season, when Marios Neophytou scored 33 goals with the Anorthosis jersey. A number that, incidentally, was not surpassed (nor… approached) by any of the foreign players who emerged as top scorers since then.
However, Apollon is one of the teams (along with Omonia) that after 2003 emerged as the top scorer several times, specifically five. In three cases it was Sosin (2004 with Cosley, 2005 and 2006), one Mrdakovic (2011) and the last one Sangoi (2014 with Monteiro and Tagapajumi).
So you say Pittas to break the κατε “establishment” of foreign top scorers or will he be beaten by one of Dignini, Kvilitaia, Sadik (with whom he is equal), Triskovski, Mae, Valakari, Wagner, Shasi (who follow)?
