Team News: AEK Larnaca
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just the sole fitness concern for the AEK Larnaca gaffer Panagiotis Giannou to contend with thanks to an otherwise robust set of players. Nikos Englezou (Appendicitis) is sidelined.
Team News: Aris Limassol
Aris Limassol boss Nicos Panayiotou has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Kévin Monnet-Paquet (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Mariusz Stepinski (Achilles tendon surgery) will miss out on this game.
For this match, we think that Aris Limassol would be disappointed if they were not to breach the defence of this AEK Larnaca lineup, although that may not quite be enough to prevent defeat.
We’re tipping a 2-1 winning score for AEK Larnaca at full-time. Could easily see this go either way.
