With Apollon Limassol prevailing at home against Omonia with 3-1 the 2nd matchday of the playoffs in the Cyprus championship continued.
Golden scorers for the home team were Ekpolo, Pittas with a penalty and WardShradi had temporarily tied for the “clover”.
A great victory for the home team, which keeps them alive in the battle to win a European “ticket”, while things are difficult for Omonia, which, however, maintains chances of exiting Europe through and through the institution of the Cup.
It was Ekpolo who opened the scoring for the home team early in the 14th minute after Warda’s corner kick and a disturbance in the away team’s box. The joy of the Limassol team lasted only 4 minutes, as Sradi with a nice spot equalized in the 18th minute.
The tie was maintained until the 45th minute when Mavrias was brought down in the area by Fotis and the referee Chrysovalantis indicated the white bullet. The execution was undertaken by Pittas, who hit the target to send the home team ahead to the locker room.
The match in the second half remained balanced, without the big phases until the last quarter of the match, when the epilogue of the match was written.
In particular, in the 81st minute Jovanonivic denied the equalizer from Loizou’s header and in the 84th minute Amr Warda sent the ball into Fabiano’s net for the third time, definitively ending the victory and tipping the scales in favor of Apollon.
