Doxa Prediction – Can Doxa move off bottom spot?

Friday night’s hosts, Doxa, currently sit bottom of the Cypriot 1st Division with just 7 points to their name after the first 14 matches of the domestic top flight season, and having lost 4 of their last 6 matches overall, they look to be up against it here despite being at home.

Recent defeats to AEK Larnaca, Apollon, Omonia Nicosia and Olympiakos Nicosia have ensured the hosts remain firmly rooted to the basement of the 1st Division, and not even a 1-0 win away from home at Pafos was enough for Doxa to move off the bottom rung.

Doxa have actually managed just 1 win all season in the Cypriot top flight but that was achieved on the road, while results at home have been poor which is reflected by Doxa’s overall home record of 0-2-5 4/19 so far this season.

The hosts have also lost 4 of their last 6 matches on home turf at their Makareio Stadio with defeats suffered against Enosis, Anorthosis, Apollon and Olympiakos and they’ve recorded just 1 home win out of their last 17 matches in the 1st Division at home.

AEL Limassol Bilbao Prediction – Can AEL consolidate top six spot?

4th placed AEL Limassol hold a 5-point buffer ahead of 7th placed Nea Salamis ahead of this Friday night clash with Doxa, but I daresay the visitors will be keen to grab all three points here in order to consolidate their place in the top six and a place in the Championship Round when the domestic season splits into the two divisions.

Recent overall form has been steady enough for AEL as they’ve suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 5 matches which was a 2-0 loss away from home at Anorthosis, and indeed, AEL have lost just 2 of their last 9 matches overall in the Cypriot top flight.

However, AEL have their form at home to thanks for their current league position as the visitors still remain unbeaten on home turf at their Tsirion Athlítiko Kentro ground but results away from home haven’t been as consistent.

An away record of 2-1-4 7/12 includes wins at Apollon and Ethnikos Achna but losses at APOEL, Nea Salamis, Omonia Nicosia and Anorthosis have all been against teams sitting in the top seven of the Cypriot 1st Division.


Key-Facts – Doxa vs AEL Limassol

  • Doxa have lost 4 of their last 6 matches overall in the 1st Division
  • Doxa have won just 1 of their last 17 matches in the 1st Division at home
  • AEL Limassol have won 5 of the last 6 meetings against Doxa


Betting Tips Verdict

Doxa’s season has been a disaster and although AEL have struggled away from home, their dominance over Doxa should see the visitors grab the points here.
