The only name on the scoresheet from Olympiakos Nicosia was Fiorin Durmishaj (71').
Games featuring Olympiakos Nicosia have proved to be quite lacklustre encounters recently with a drought of goals becoming customary. Over their past six games, a miniscule aggregate goal total of 6 has been yielded between both them and their opposition at an average of 1 goal per game.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Olympiakos Nicosia:
- have not registered a win against AEK Larnaca in their previous 3 league games.
- are unbeaten in their previous 2 home league matches.
- have not won at home in their last 5 league games. That's never good.
AEK Larnaca will go into this game following on from a 4-3 First Division win against Aris Limassol in their last fixture.
For AEK Larnaca, the goalscorers were Omri Altman (33', 65'), Rafael Lopes (35') and Imad Faraj (90'). Karol Struski (20') and Yannick Gomis (27', 78') scored for Aris Limassol.
A sequence of hard-working displays by the AEK Larnaca defensive unit has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 4 from their past 6 clashes in total. Over that same period of time, their forwards have scored 10. It will be interesting to find out whether or not that trend can be sustained in this game.
Looking at their past form shows that AEK Larnaca:
- have not emerged victorious against Olympiakos Nicosia when they have played them away from home in the previous 4 league matches. Not good.
- have not been beaten in their last 5 league matches away from home.
