“Olympiacos is better than AEK Athens, but now it is far behind.”

Demis Nikolaidis commented on the derby between AEK Athens and Olympiacos in the second round of Super League 1 and pointed out the superiority of Piraeus in the match, but also the title step taken by Union with a 1-0 win.

Analyzing the second round of Super League 1 on Nova's Monday FC show, Demis Nikolaidis focused on Olympiacos' superiority in midfield, but also on the solutions AEK took from Almeyda's changes.

“AEK did not have many players on a good day, especially in the midfielders. Olympiacos had Essé and Tsikinho. AEK had Athanasiadis on a good day. AEK had solutions from the bench, with Mandalo and Eliasson crossing and combining.” On goal, with the management of the game as well. Olympiacos was better, they made four big stages. AEK expected that they would need some time due to the interruption. I think they will start to accelerate again. In AEK's goal, I think Ritsos should not have avoided the card. It could have been To be fired because with a draw things would have been different. Now Olympiacos was far behind. It was not finished 100%. If Panathinaikos beat AEK Athens there would be hope. Last year Olympiacos won with AEK in several stages. Now it lost without having AEK no chances.

Olympiacos' changes did not go badly. Olympiacos got him where he wanted the match, but he did not get a result. If AEK wins on Wednesday, the chances of winning the championship are very high. “In the next two games, if AEK gets four points, it will strengthen its position even more.”
