AEK: The second must win his match against Aris before the week that will decide a lot

A single victory for AEK in “Kleanthis Vikelidis” over Aris to remain in first place and prepare for the most decisive week in the title struggle. Matias Almeida's possible plans.

the Eek The previous two times during the season he went up to Thessaloniki to face him Mars He didn't leave with a smile. First that 1-1 result in the cup that ended on penalties with the Union flag of elimination, then that 3-3 result at the end of stoppage time with a penalty kick, a result that dropped AEK from the top in the last match. Regular season. Will it be the third and… toxic to yellow and black?

Given her tomorrow's match Eek It's what we say Must win, as was last week's match against Aris again at OPAP Arena, with Al Ittihad back to their winning ways and on top. Next week there are two decisive matches with Panathinaikos inside and PAOK However, they will have a lot to do with in the title race, which means that for Almeida's side there is nothing more to do than a Klianthi Fikilidis double to maintain the lead.

Almeida himself admitted in his statements that tomorrow's match against Aris and the next two matches are crucial for AEK to repeat the title. “Pelado” does not count the fact that Stankovic and Livia Garcia were left out of the field, and Mokoudi, who left during the week without rest from training, was unable to overcome them, unlike Amrabat, who succeeded in entering and was placed at the disposal of the Argentine coach.

Almeida's plans are questionable because of the management that needs to be done. At the back, Athanasiadis will be in goal, on the left is Hadgisavi or Pilios, and on the right, Sidibe occupies the position with Rota and the pair of goalkeepers, Vida and Kalens. In midfield, it remains to be seen what changes might be made in relation to last Sunday's match in New Philadelphia. Pons, Eliason and Zuber should be considered “safe”. In midfield, Johnson, Szymanski, Pineda and Ljubicic are all vying for a place, while Amrabat is a candidate on the flanks who could be used if Jačinovic does not start.
