Aris Saloniki Prediction

Aris’s promising six-match sequence without defeat was put to an end by Olympiakos with a resounding 4-1 loss away at the Stadio Georgios Karaiskáki which resulted in Aris losing ground on the top four clubs in the Greek Super League, but the hosts have a great chance of bouncing back with a win here against bottom club, Smyrnis on Monday night.

Recent wins against Xanthi, PAS Giannina, Asteras Tripolis and AEK Athens should be enough to remind the hosts of their strong sequence of results before last time’s defeat at Olympiakos, and with a pretty reasonable home record that stands at 6-2-3 14/7 along with three wins from their last four matches on home soil, the hosts still look in good shape to add to their points tally here.

Wins over Lamia, PAS Giannina and AEK Athens (all to nil) have also been welcome wins, and having kept a total of six clean sheets from their 11 home matches to date, they’ll no doubt be keen to add to their total of shut-outs in this encounter.

Midfielders Garcia (8 goals) and Diguiny (4 goals) along with forward Younes (6 goals) should ensure that the hosts hit the back of the net at least once this evening.

 

Key-Facts – Aris Saloniki v Smyrnis

  • Aris have lost just once in their last 7 matches overall in the Super League
  • Aris have kept 6 clean sheets in their 11 home matches to date
  • Smyrnis have failed to score in 7 of their 12 away matches

 

Smyrnis Prediction

Smyrnis sit rock-bottom of the Greek Super League and their situation has got worse as they possess just 10 points in total and find themselves a massive 17 points adrift of safety with just six league matches remaining.

It doesn’t take a mathematical genius to work out that defeat tonight at Aris would condemn Smyrnis to relegation down to the Greek Football League, and having lost three of their last four matches overall in recent weeks, this looks a very distinct possibility.

Defeats to PAOK 5-1, AEK Athens 2-1 and a 2-0 loss to Olympiakos means the visitors have conceded 9 goals during this three-match losing streak, although they did manage to earn a point in a 0-0 draw with OFI Crete last time out at their Stadio Georgios Kamaras.

However, a very poor away record which stands at 1-1-10 5/21 suggests it’s only a matter of time before Smyrnis’s relegation is confirmed, and tonight could be the night. The visitors have failed to score in 7 of their 12 away matches to date.

Betting Tips Verdict

Aris Saloniki should run out comfortable winners here.
