AEK 4-1 Chania

Nice to see a high scoring game again, this time thanks to two goals from Anakoglou as well as another two from Lambropoulos and Aravidis. The win, our 13th of the season, leaves us very comfortably in first with 41 points, 9 points ahead of second placed Panachaiki.

It was nice to see a promising final match before our mid week Cup game against Olympiakos. Possesion during the match was 58% in our favour, and we managed to get 14 shots (though Chania managed a respectable 8 shots as well). Anakoglou, probably rightfully so (I didn’t get to watch the game… again), won MVP of the match. AEK365 also gave decent ratings for Anestis, Bakakis, Lambropoulos, Rovas, Barbosa, Brecevic, and Aravidis.

Worth noting from today’s match was that our newest signing, promising Nigerian striker Macauley Chrisantus played a few minutes towards the end, and though he didn’t have enough time to make much of impact, it was nice to see that he’s already fairy comfortable and ready to play.

Also worth noting from this weekend was that our basketball team managed another impressive victory, this time beating Panionios away 78-94. We’ve made a few very impressive signings so far this season and they all seem to not only be making quite the impact, but I get the feeling they’re enjoying playing for the team and the fans. Its really quite nice finally seeing our Basketball team having some respectable performances for the first time in quite a while. The next big test for the team will be against first placed Panthinaikos. Won’t be an easy match by any means, but I’m hoping we can be as much of a challenge as possible for the Greens.

Just a matter of days until the match with Olympiakos! I’m nervous, but also extremely excited. It’s been far too long that we’ve seen a real derby for AEK.
