Ethnikos Achna will be hoping for a better result following a 1-2 First Division loss in their previous game against Omonia Nicosia.
It’s been all too rare in recent times that Ethnikos Achna have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that Achniotes have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, giving up 10 goals during that time. That kind of trend won’t necessarily be continued into this match, though.
Since a losing effort in their last game against Apollon Limassol in First Division action, Olympiakos Nicosia and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
The numbers tell their own story, and Olympiakos Nicosia have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 7 goals in total. In defence, The Green Blacks seem to have a bit of a soft underbelly.
