With the hosts completing their obligations in the event with their heads held high and the guests taking the ticket for the “4” and coming one step closer to the… dream of winning the Betsson Greek Cup.
Excellent performance from his set Dimitris Eleftheropouloswho after the 3-0 defeat in the first match at “Kleanthis Vikelidis” had no anxiety and played her football, with his team Akis Manziou to see it more as a chore, but to save the defeat as well, going through with a total score 5-2.
The team that will qualify from the pair Panaitolikos-OFI (pp. the Agriniotes defeated the Cretans 2-1 away from home in the first match) will face Aris in the foursome of the institution.
Copious changes, as was logical, from the Aki Manzio in the rematch with Victory of Volos. After all, the 3-0 in the first match gave the experienced technician the opportunity to make an extensive rotation, choosing the Houtesioti in the hearth and them Fatore, Veleth, Brambetz, Ferrari in the defense four. The Ducouret, Jurasek were in the midfield, the Panagidis, Manu Garthia at the ends and the Saverio, Zamora the duo on the attack.
The atmosphere at “Panthessaliko” was excellent, the fans of Niki Volos were in thunderous attendance, while the presence of those of Aris gave a different color to the match.
The game did not have a good pace, nor phases, with the “yellows” winning a penalty in the 26th minute by Gavrielidis after a foul on Garthia, with Saverio to undertake the execution to defeat him Garaveli for 1-0.
Nevertheless, the lead of the guests lasted only eight minutes, after Niki Volou equalized in the 35th minute, when the Cretan made the shot that was countered, the ball took a strange trajectory and was placed in the Cash register who closely defeated him Houtesioti for the 1-1. A goal that had a special meaning and celebration for the Voliotes, who ran to the bench and embraced the Kyriakideswho recently lost his wife.
1-1 was the half-time score, with Niki Volou coming in…furiously in the second 45 minutes and finding a goal before the first minute was even completed. His tragic mistake Brambetzput Politis face-to-face with Houtesiotis and he broke into the oncoming Ribeirowho scored 2-1 in an empty net and set Panthessaliko on fire.
Manzios, with a triple change, wanted to change the bad texts of his team, wanting to stimulate them aggressively, with Eleftheropoulos throwing Kyriakidis into the match and him knowing the apotheosis in a particularly emotional atmosphere. In the 65th minute, Niki came close to the third goal but Ribeiro made a poor finish, with Aris four minutes later… ending the modest ceremony, with Zamora to find him Saverio and he executes through the area for 2-2.
The game continued to have an excellent pace, the ball was going up and down and the Houtesiotis with a nice intervention in the 75th minute, he denied the 3-2 to To! In the… caps o Ferrari drove the heel of Kritikos almost over the line, while in the development of the phase o Gioras he saw his header end up in the arms of the “yellow” keeper. Victory looked for it more but couldn’t find it, with the final whistle finding the two teams tied at 2-2.
Its players and staff Victory of Volos experienced apotheosis from their world, o Mars he pulled off the… chore and qualified for the semi-finals of the Cup.
MVP: THE Quique Saverio with two goals… he did not allow Niki Volos to “hope” for a miracle and made his team’s task easier. Of course, with 3-0 at the back, it was not easy for the hosts to achieve an upset, but sometimes in football you never know what can happen.
The whistle: He did not have a difficult task Tsagkalidis, having to manage an easy match. Correct penalty decision in favor of Aris in the first half.
