  • Competition: 1. Division
  • Date: 23rd January 2023
  • Kickoff: 15:00 UTC / 16:00 CET
  • Venue: Alphamega Stadium

It is a top-six clash in the Cyprus 1. Division as fourth-placed Aris take on sixth-placed Apollon at the Alphamega Stadium on Monday. The home side have 16 wins and draws from 19 games played, which is one of the best numbers in the league and that is exactly the reason why they remain within ten points of the other top-three sides of the competition. But, lagging by just two points behind Aris, Apollon have 14 wins and draws under their belt too. The visitors may not have scored as many goals as the other top-six sides of the league, but have conceded just 14 times in this time frame which makes them the fourth-best defensive side in the Cyprus top flight. The biggest talking point of this match remains Aris' home form though. The fourth-placed giant has failed to win six of their nine home games this season, which is shocking as teams usually perform better in their own backyard. Apollon have a real chance here to get a positive result, if not all three points.

Aris Limassol vs Apollon Limassol Betting Pick #1: Draw

Aris have failed to win their last eight games in all competitions now. The visitors, Apollon too, have failed to win four of their last five away games in all competitions which has put them in a tough spot coming into this tie. Overall, neither side has the confidence to go all out for a win in this game while both are risking a place in the top-six if they drop all three points too, with a defeat. We believe that this game will end in a 1-1 draw with both sides happy to see this game out with points being shared between them.

Pick #2: Under 2.5 goals

It is pretty clear that these are two really struggling sides meeting at the Alphamega Stadium this Monday. So, it will be really improbable that any of the teams will really dominate all the exchanges in this clash. Moreover, while Aris have seen under 2.5 goals in three of their last five games and Apollon have seen the same trend in three of their last six games played in all competitions, we will be picking under 2.5 goals as another great prediction for this tie, with 1-1 being the ideal scoreline.

Aris Limassol Team News

Aris made three big signings this season to reinforce their top-four hopes. Striker Mariusz Stepinski has settled really easily in the starting eleven after arriving from Hellas Verona on a loan earlier this season. He becomes the highest-valued player to play for Aris in the last three years, with his incoming loan deal. Another player who regularly starts for the hosts is a defensive midfielder, Julius Szoke. The experienced 27-year-old midfielder joins in from Ironi Kiryat Shymona on a permanent deal, worth €200k, which is a bargain considering his value has shot up to over €900k with his recent performances.

Players to watch: Aleksandr Kokorin (5 goals and 3 assists), Leo Bengtsson (5 goals and 3 assists), Shavy Babicka (4 goals and 2 assists)

Apollon Limassol Team News

Four-time domestic champions, Apollon Limassol, made a few signings too, this summer. While most of them were just backup options for their reserve team or the bench, there is one player they have got on a great deal just a few weeks back. Left-winger Amr Warda comes in on a minimal fee of €120k, which is eight times below his actual worth of €1 million as per transfermarkt's official website. The 29-year-old Egyptian has thus become the highest-rated player in the visitor's overall squad, rivalling number nine Ioannis Pittas for the left flank spot.

Players to watch: Ioannis Pittas (6 goals and 1 assist), Bassel Jradi (3 goals), Ezekiel Henty (2 goals and 1 assist)
