The last match of the Cyprus League 2nd round saw APOEL losing another 3 points unfortunately after losing 1-2 from long-time “rival” Omonoia. A very bad result which finds our team in the 4th position of the leaderboard with only six more games in the Playoff stage ahead of us.
This was another game where APOEL played determined and missed great chances. The first half saw both teams remain scoreless with an important substitution for our team however. Right after Chiotis’ injury at 19’, Mirosavljevic had to leave the game after a serious injury with Papathanasiou taking his place.
The second half started great for APOEL as right in the first minute Papathanasiou opened the score, raising the players’ spirits of course. At 60’ however, after a tragic mistake by our team Omonoia scored the equaliser goal making the score 1-1. The game continued in fast paces with both teams seeking the goal. This unfortunately came for Omonoia at 89’ leaving our players unable to react in time.
