AEK Larnaca will be looking to move joint second with AEL as they visit Ermis Aradippou on Monday night.
Imanol Idiakez’s side had defeated Olympiakos Nicosia 2-0 in their only league game so far and could move within a point of leaders Anorthosis – who have played a game more – with a victory over Nicos Papagiotou’s Ermis.
- Anorthosis go top after edging ten-men Aris
- Oar devastated after being left out of Europe
- Omonia to sign on Benteke’s younger brother
Ermis, who changed almost their entire squad over the summer, lost their opening game 2-1 to Doxa Katokopia and currently sit bottom of the league – although they have only played one game.
Idiakez has dropped Carles Soria and Constantinos Charalambides for the game while Panagiotou has a full strength team.
On the weekend, Anorthosis, APOEL, Omonia and AEL all secured victories while Apollon were held to a 1-1 draw by Olympiakos.
Pafos and Alki fought out an entertaining 1-1 draw.
