Achnas – Ermis – First Division Prediction and Preview: 2nd December 2018
The Achnas occupy the 14th position of the First Division, with 7 points accumulated in 17 championship games. The hosts have a very poor time, with just 2 points in the last 4 stages. After a 2-2 draw on their own in front of Omonia, they suffered a last-round failure on the field at Ol. Nicosia, score 3-2. Russia’s N. Kipiani is the team’s top scorer in the championship, and has managed to score 4 times so far. Achnas suffered a defeat in the Cyprus Cup, 0-1 on their own at Othellos Athienou. Achnas crosses the heavy times when it comes to home games, the last official victory in front of supporters since August this year.
On the other hand, Ermis is ranked 11th in the league’s first league in Cyprus, the team managing to gather 14 points after 17 stages. The guests are in a continuous drop in form, with 4 defeats suffered in the last 5 championship games. Previously, Ermis suffered a humiliation on his own ground, 0-6 in front of Apollon. Elvetian I. Emeghara is the best marker in the championship, with 6 goals scored so far. The guests did not win an official November match last year when they defeated Aris in a 2-0 away game. The Ermis were able to beat Achnas the last time in a match in a championship match on March 12, 2016, with a score of 1-0.
The situation is not at all pink for the two teams, which are already threatened with a relegation. Both have to force the victory in this duel to further eliminate uncertainty. Both Ermis and Achnas have serious defensive problems with 36 or 30 goals this season. Taking into account these things, it is quite predictable a winner in this duel, so I will rely on a goal-based prediction. It is possible for the duel to be spectacular, on occasions on both sides.
