Apollon comeback

League leaders Apollon Limassol mounted a superb second half comeback as they came back from 2-0 down to beat rivals Anorthosis 3-2.

In the first game for both sides in 2021, Apollon registered a huge win to maintain top spot in the league.


First half

Anorthosis took the lead after nine minutes with Giorgi Kvilitaia running onto Nikos Kaltsas’s pass and slotting into the bottom corner. It was his eighth goal of the season.

The striker nearly made it two in the 18th minute but his shot was beaten away by goalkeeper Demetris Demetriou.

The visitors did double their lead in the 29th minute when substitute Dor Micha seflessly teed up Josef Husbauer to score.


Second half

Seven minutes into the second half, the hosts grabbed a goal back. Frenchman Nicolas Diguiny headed home from Bagaliy Dabo’s teasing cross.

On the hour mark, Anorthosis were back on level terms. Joao Pedro’s overlapping run was recognised and he found Florentin Matei who finished well at the far post.

Apollon completed the comeback with a controversial penalty. Branko Vrgoc was adjudged to have handballed after the referee reviewed his decision.

Diguiny slotted home from the penalty spot to score his ninth league goal of the season and give Sofronis Avgousti’s side a crucial win.


What it means

Apollon have a two point lead at the top of the table with their fourth win in their last five games.

Anorthosis drop down to fourth, and sit six points off the top.
