Promising Results

We’ve had a few friendlies so far this pre-season, and so far the results have been encouraging. The results of our three friendlies have been a 0-0 draw against Skoda Xanthi, a 7-1 win against Ilisiakos, and a 5-0 against AE Diminiou. Of course, we have to keep in mind that the opposition we’ve faced so far has been rather easy to get by, I still see some promising signs from the results. I’ve attached a video below from our last game, showing the goals and some of the highlights, and I quite like what I see. It seems like they’re having fun out there, and aren’t afraid of taking some chances. Nice to see some of our usual scorers from last season (Bresevic and D’Acol) on the score sheet, as well as some new faces, including Helder Barbosa, a promising Portuguese player we signed a few weeks ago.

We have a few more friendlies coming up, including games against Niki Volou and Larissa, as well as a very exciting friendly against Roma in Athens. I’m obviously quite nervous for the friendly against Roma since it will be anything but an easy game, but it will be great to see our players against a world class team such as Roma. Its worth remembering that AEK has some history with Roma, considering we have played against each other in previous European games, as well as the fact that Dellas played for Roma and was one of their star players at the time.
