Team News: Aris FC
The Aris FC boss Apostolos Mantzios doesn’t have any fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash owing to a completely injury-free group to choose from.
Team News: OFI Crete
From a largely available squad, there is just the lone fitness worry for the OFI Crete gaffer Nikos Nioplias to be concerned about. Miguel Mellado (Knee Injury) misses out for this game.
Our assessment is that Aris FC will most probably stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
At the same time, OFI Crete will not find it easy to score but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be converting at least once.
Accordingly, we see a fairly comfortable 3-1 victory for Aris FC at the end of the 90 minutes.
