AEL Limassol compromised with their presence in the relegation group and their main priority until the end of the season is the Cup where they qualified for the semi-finals. However, in the final round of the regular season, they suffered their first defeat at the city’s new stadium from their „eternal” rival, Apollon Limassol (0:2). They are +14 points from relegation places with 1 game less, and coach Janevski has some problems with absence. Due to suspensions or injuries Muriel (20/0 first goalkeeper), Mirallas (16/2 suspended), Makris (15/2), Panteli (14/0 suspended), Medojević (10/0), Dewaest (5/0 suspended) and Andreou (3/0) are out of the squad. Olympiakos Nicosia climbed to 16 points in the last game of the regular season. As underdogs, they welcomed Paphos and won a big point. There is faith to stay in the league, and coach Sergidis can count on three key players Kyriakou (21/0), Kah Fabrice (14/2), and Alceus (6/0). They are a tough team, undefeated in the last 3 rounds (only 1 defeat in the last 6 matches), and against a bit relaxed AEL Limassol, can take a positive result.
