An interesting characteristic of recent Atromitos games is seeing a zero in the scoreline.
From their previous sextet of clashes leading up to this one, in as many as 5 of them a bet on both teams scoring would have lost. Regardless, we will just have to wait and see whether the trend might persist in this upcoming match or not.
