OFI Crete vs AEK Athens
Theodoros Vardinogiannis Stadium (Heraklion)
OFI Crete have a nice start to the season, but not it’s time to face one of the best teams in the league, AEK Athens. OFI will try to continue their good run and end AEK’s winning streak. Only 2 points are between these teams in the table but AEK have a game in hand yet to play. OFI are undefeated at home, while AEK have two wins in two away matches which is reason enough for this match to be labeled as the derby of the round.Get Your Sign-Up Bonus!

Their main focus in this match will be defense and they have the support of the home fans, so they can hope for a good result here.
AEK Athens are among the main candidates for the trophy and everything but a win in this match will be a disappointment for them. They won in the last round with a very late goal against Atromitos, and in the last 5 matches, they have 4 wins and a draw. Currently, they are in 4th place with 11 points, 8 less than Olympiacos but with 2 games less played. They have 3 wins and 2 draws and as visitors, they have 2 wins with goal difference 5:3. In this match they will be without Sidibe who was sent off in the last match against Atromitos.
Expert Betting Tips
AEK are clear favorite here and I think that they have enough quality to overcome this unpleasant away match. The hosts will concentrate more on the defense and will try to surprise the favorite with counter attacks, but still AEK plays very high with intense pressure and ball control, so OFI will have to work a lot harder to pull out miracle here. I believe that AEK can score at least 2 goals against OFI in this match.
