Our tips, poll and stats for APOEL v AEK Larnaca can all be found here - plus the latest match odds.
APOEL will be looking for another win after a 3-0 First Division victory against Ermis Aradippou.
A recurring feature of more recent APOEL games is the high number of scores with a nil in them.
Taking their prior 6 matches before this one, in as many as 5 of them a bet on BTTS would've been a loser. That aside, time will tell if the trend might be maintained in this match.
Coming into this meeting, APOEL have not beaten AEK Larnaca in their last 7 league matches.
After suffering a loss in their previous game against Enosis Neon Paralimni in First Division action, AEK Larnaca and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
The strike force from AEK Larnaca have struggled for goals in their past six clashes, contributing the disappointing return of only 4. In those fixtures, Kitrinoprasinoi have also seen the collective goal aggregate of their opponents equal 8.
A look at their previous results shows us that AEK Larnaca:
- haven't beaten APOEL when they've played them away from home in the last 8 league matches. A very poor set of away results, indeed.
- remain undefeated by APOEL when having played them away from home in the previous 4 league games. Travelling fans have really enjoyed these clashes.
Head to head
Inspecting their past head to head clashes dating back to 16/02/2019 shows that APOEL have won 0 of them & AEK Larnaca 3, with the number of drawn results standing at 3.
In all, 9 goals were yielded between them during those clashes, with 2 from Thrylos and 7 being from Kitrinoprasinoi. That’s an average goals per game of 1.5.
Team News: APOEL
APOEL manager has a full complement, with no fitness worries at all ahead of this clash thanks to a completely healthy group to choose from.
Team News: AEK Larnaca
Due to a mostly full-strength squad, there is just a single fitness problem for the AEK Larnaca manager Imanol Idiákez to contend with. Abraham González (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here.
Our assessment here is that AEK Larnaca could find themselves struggling to get anything against this APOEL lineup who we think will end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore predicting a very even match with a 1-0 winning score for APOEL when the full-time whistle blows.
Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
