Aris vs Apollon Smyrnis (By: Stanioooo)
25th round match in Greece between Aris Salonica and Appolon Smyrnis.
I love to make picks about Greek matches from the Super league and here I will try something with bigger odds, but with really not bad chances for success. I wrote a lot about in my previous picks about Appolon Smyrnis that this team will be relegated for sure and there is no doubt they are the weakest one in the Super league this season. Their performances looked little bit better in the lastest 5/6 games, but still it was not enough to take a few points which didn't change their position in the bottom of the table.
Aris Salonica usually allow goal/s at home against the very best teams like PAOK, Olympiakos, Pana or AEK and it happened almost the same during this one- they lost points against PAOK, Panathinaikos and Olympiakos at home, which was expected. In all of their home games till now they win to nill expect against Panionios(1:1) and Panetolikos(1:2). Strangely or not in these two games Aris received an early red card and that led mostly to these results. So, why I wrote all these things? When Aris face an opponent except the very best teams in Greece and something like a red card for Aris didn't occur, they always win with 1:0 or 2:0. They haven't got any other result than these two- not a single goalless draw or a game when they scored 3 or more goals. Against opponents from the cathegory like Appolon Smyrnis.they have these results- 2:0 against Levadiakos, 2:0 against Larisa, 1:0 against PAS Giannina. Strong performances at home without scoring too much, but also keeping clean sheets.
Aris will miss Korhut(9/0 defender) and Basha(20/0 midfielder)- both are national selected players, while Smyrnis will be without Thomas(21/2 forward) who is suspended and Orihuela((18/1 defender)- injured.
Aris are still 5th in the table, 6 points behind Atromitos. With a win here they will shorten the distance to 3 points and they will go into this game looking only for the max points(the 4th position gives participation in EL). I really don't expect Appolon Smyrnis to score in this game if the hosts don't get another early red card and when we take infact Aris don't have a single home match this season scoring three or more goals, Aris to win+ under 2.5 goals looks a logical outcome. I will also try with 2:0 as a correct score at 4.75 odds, just have a feeling it will end like this.
