The beginning was made 1939when AEK had qualified with 2-0 on paper, after the match that had been held at “Karaiskakis” had been stopped in the 40′ and with Union in front of the score with 2-1, after an Olympiakos player refused to leave after his dismissal.

The 1948 AEK had triumphed with 4-0 at “Apostolos Nikolaidis”, while they got a big qualification with a 4-1 victory a year later, with Olympiacos getting their blood back the 1952when they prevailed 2-0 at “Nikos Goumas”.

The Union also dominated the 1978when he defeated Piraeus 6-1, while 15 years later (1993) in a double semi-final, Olympiacos needed overtime to qualify (1-0 first leg, 3-2 in overtime the second).

The 1997 AEK celebrated qualification with two victories (2-1 at home and 1-0 away), the 2005 the “red and whites” went to extra time (1-0 away and 2-1 in extra time away), while their most recent meeting in the semi-finals of the Cup came in 2017when AEK qualified thanks to the away goals rule (2-1 away win and 1-0 home loss).
