AEK: With an eleven… Cup in the “final” with Aris


THE AEK completes today the very short preparation for the return match for the “16” of the Betsson Cup against Mars, which will take place on Wednesday at “Vikelidis” (19:00). THE Matias Almeida although the 0-0 in the first game makes his team’s work difficult, he is not going to deviate from his philosophy and will go into a wide rotation using what we have learned since last year as… Cup eleven.

We remind you that even in last year’s semi-finals with Olympiakos, the Argentinian coach made many changes, using only a few of his main players, and they did not in both games. This is expected to happen now that the roster has more depth, but there are also significant absences.

In addition to the internationals (Hajisafi, Mohammadi, Mukudi and Zini), the “Union” will not have at its disposal the Levi Garcia, who was injured in the derby with Panathinaikos and from Thursday it will be seen if he will be available on Sunday in Peristeri against Atromitos. He also remains out of the fight Galanopoulos.

Definitely in eleven Athanasiadis, Pelios, Mitoglou, Ionson, Eliasson and Ponce will return and compete, as in the first game, while Mandalos (who is suspended for Atromito) will also play as a starter, possibly Pizarro as well. From there, one of Vida or Cullens will be the second stopper, Rota or Sidibe will be the right back, while Araujo is also a candidate to play behind the forward. Paolo Fernandez is also expected to play.

*THE Shimansky who completed three yellow cards will probably be declared to serve in the match against OFI at Opap Arena, just like Rota who has already been selected for this match. We remind you that against Atromitos in Peristeri, Mandalos will be absent, while Ionson and Gatsinovich will play at home with Asteras Tripoli.
