Our Lamia v Larissa tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below - along with the latest match odds.
Lamia go into this fixture after a 0-0 Super League tied result versus Skoda Xanthi.
For their opponents, Skoda Xanthi got 5 attempts on goal with 1 on target.
Lamia have struggled with their forward play in recent times. Their ‘goals for’ figure stands at just 3 against opposition teams during the course of their previous 6 fixtures. In those meetings, Kyanólefki have also seen the tally of goals against them come to 5. With no two games being the same, we will just have to wait and see whether that trend might be maintained in this next game or not.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Lamia:
- have not lost a league tie with Larissa in their previous 5 games.
- haven’t won at home in the past 2 matches in the league.
In their last game, Larissa drew 0-0 in the Super League match with Panionios.
In that match, Larissa had 64% possession and 11 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Panionios got 5 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target.
In as many as 5 out of the previous 6 clashes featuring Larissa, at least three goals have been struck. The overall average number of goals per match within that time is 2.67, with the number of goals averaged by Larissa equalling 1.17.
Taking a look at their past results, Larissa:
- have not won against Lamia in away games against them for the last 2 matches in the league.
- are without an away win for the past 10 matches in the league. What a terrible run of away results.

Team News: Lamia
Miguel Bianconi (Knee Injury) and Tyronne (Adductor problems) won’t be playing for Lamia gaffer Giorgos Petrakis.
Team News: Larissa
Due to a mostly full-strength group, there is just a single fitness worry for the Larissa gaffer Michalis Grigoriou to be concerned with. Marko Nunic (Knee Injury) misses out for this game.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Larissa will need to apply a lot of pressure to find the net against this Lamia lineup who we think should score one, at least.
We’re therefore anticipating a 1-0 advantage for Lamia at the conclusion of the game.
We’ll see what happens.
