A battle that will determine a lot in the economy of the championship – and specifically in terms of staying – is the one between Lamia and Ionikos on Monday afternoon (30/1, 19:30). The two teams face each other at “Athanassios Diakos” as part of the 20th round of the Stoiximan Super League, with the winner (if any) taking… a deep breath.
Lamia is in the penultimate position with 12 points, four more than the trailing Ionian and one less than Levadeiakos (which was hosted by PAOK a little earlier).
After all, both opponents have only one “three points” in the league. The hosts have to win from October 1 (1-0 at home against Levadeiakos) and the visitors from November 5 (2-0 away from OFI).
Last matchday, Lamia stayed at 0-0 at his headquarters Levadeikouwhile a few days later he won 4-2 him Apollo of Paralimni and with a total score of 6-3 qualified to semi-finals of the Cup, where he will face PAOK.
On the other hand, the Nicaeans suffered a painful – based on development – defeat by AEK in Neapolis, as although they performed perhaps their best performance this year, they saw the “yellow and black” reach the upset (1-2) with Zuber’s goal in stoppage time. In fact, this marked his last game Dimitris Spanou on the Ionian bench (the cooperation of the two sides was dissolved by mutual consent), with Michalis Grigoriou to now undertake the difficult mission of saving the “blue and white”. Of course, a similar project has been carried out again in the past. Specifically, in the 2020-21 season, when in similar circumstances he took over in the middle of the season Ghoulagainst which he also happens to perform the debut with his new team.
