AEL Larissa take on the visitors AEK Athens FC at “AEL Arena” in the first-leg fight of the Greek Cup semi-final. The game will be played in Larissa on Thursday, March 1st.
AEL Larissa do not impress with their performance in this season and look rather pale. At the moment the club is sitting on the 12th position in the Super League table with 25 points gained after 23 encounters played. The side’s offense demonstrates remarkably weak football, having scored 16 goals, however, its defense doesn’t feel much better with 32 goals conceded. On the previous stages of the Greek Cup AEL Larissa knocked out Xanthi FC and Giannina. In the latest home tackles the team has broken Platanias FC 1:0, Giannina 3:2 and lost 0:1 to Panathinaikos.

Meanwhile, AEK Athens FC look great in this season and keep on fighting for the champion’s title, having good chances to succeed in it. “Dikefalos Aetos” currently occupy the second place in the elite division standings with 51 points earned after 23 clashes behind. The team shows powerful performance in attack, having scored 39 goals already while its defense is doing quite alright with 12 goals conceded. In the previous rounds of the Greek Cup AEK Athens FC passed over Panetolikos and Olympiakos Piraeus. In the recent battles conducted on the road “Dikefalos Aetos” have got two draws against Atromitos and Dynamo Kiev with the same 0:0 scoreline plus celebrated 2:1 victory over Olympiakos Piraeus.
AEL Larissa have not managed to beat AEK Athens FC across last 10 head-to-heads. “Dikefalos Aetos” are very strong at this point, the side looks awesome and demonstrates confident play, nevertheless, I doubt that the visitors will manage to gain a lopsided triumph on the road.
Prediction for the match: AEL Larissa to win with +1.0 Asian handicap.
