-- As Usual...Draw Between Xanthi & Kerkyra --
GREEK SUPERLEAGUE - MATCHDAY 9
|Xanthi||0 - 0||Kerkyra|
Xanthi and Kerkyra played to a goalless draw in the Pigadia which is the 9th draw in 13 meetings between the two sides. Xanthi will feel rather lucky to walk away with a point from today’s match as Kerkyra was the better side missing many opportunities (mainly through Thuram) to find a winner.
After two big wins on the road against Panathinaikos and Platanias, Xanthi hoped to make it three straight wins in the Superleague as they hosted Kerkyra. However, it was the visitors who were the better side in today’s encounter creating most of the chances on goal. Kerkyra’s Brazilian star, Thuram, was on the end of most of his side’s opportunities having 6 of Kerkyra’s 7 shots in the game. However, he was on a bad night as he wasted his efforts and hit the post in the first half. As for Xanthi, they did not pose a threat to the opposing goal and the two teams earned a point with a goalless draw.
A draw between these two teams is no surprise as their last 9 of 13 fixtures have ended in a stalemate. Today’s result puts Xanthi on 9 points and Kerkyra moves up to 7 points. Next week, Xanthi will travel to Levadiakos while Kerkyra will host Veria.
