AEK 2-1 Apollon Smyrnis

It wasn’t the easiest of games, but it all ended well for us in the end as we got the three points courtesy of goals from Barbosa and Soleidis.

We outplayed Apollon by managing to have 67% of the total possession and 15 shots (with 10 on target) compared to 5 shots for Apollon with only 2 making the target. Unfortunately though, as is so often the case with football, one goal was enough to turn the match around and force AEK to make something happen under pressure. Apollon’s goal came just after the start of the second half, with the score still even at 0-0. A well placed pass met the feet of Angulo, who managed to shake off our defense and made his way around an out of position Anestis.

Thankfully though, we were ultimately able to respond thanks to a well taken shot from Barbosa who managed to catch the rebound after Chrisantus’ had his shot blocked by Apollon’s keeper.

We managed to finally seal the deal after a nicely taken shot by Soleidis. Honestly I’m not sure if he was going for the shot, or possibly attempting a cross, but if he indeed was going for the shot, he did well to catch the keeper off guard.

Iraklis managed to win their game against Panachaiki, which keeps them in first place with 16 points, though we also have 16 points. Third placed is Larissa with 6 points, and Apollon in fourth with 4 points. Its safe to say that with another win or two, we will have pretty much all but made certain our place in the first division for next season.

    Sounds like Melisanidis blasted the players for their disappointing performance so far during the playoffs
