Group 1 (10games played):

Apollon Paralimnio and Elips Skoutari are locked on 21 points after ten rounds, as both seem to be going flat out for first place which grants a promotion play-off berth. The teams have won six, drawn three and lost one each. Kavala and Nestos Chrysoupoli aren’t far behind though, training the leaders by four points.

  1. Apollon Paralimnio - 21
  2. Elips Skoutari - 21 
  3. Kavala - 17 
  4. Nestos Chrysoupoli - 17
  5. Aetos Orfano - 12

Group 2 (15 games played):

Fallen giants Iraklis Thessaloniki, a club which were competing in the Super League last year before the financial crisis, occupy second place behind Aris Palaicohori. Iraklis would have been in first spot, but the team drew 2:2 with lowly Karitsa on Sunday.

  1. Aris Palaiochori - 32
  2. Iraklis Thessaloniki - 31
  3. Almopos Aridea - 27
  4. Makedonikos - 25 
  5. Naoussa - 24

Group 3 (12 games played):

Four points ahead of their nearest challengers, Tilikratis are sitting pretty in first. Tilikratis could have extended the advantage over Neos Amfilochos even further, but they were held to a frustrating 0:0 draw against Kastoria on the weekend. Makedonias Foufas, A.E. Lefkimmi and Ermis Amyntaio find themselves in joint third place with 21 points each.

  1. Tilikratis - 26
  2. Neos Amfilochos - 22
  3. Makedonias Fofas - 21
  4. A.E. Lefkimmi - 21
  5. Ermis Amyntatio - 21

Group 4 (12 games played):

Volos NFC are simply running away with the group. Having won an impressive 11 out of 12 games, Volos hold a huge eight point lead over second placed Almyros. Barring a minor miracle, Volos will surely qualify for the promotion playoffs.

  1. Volos NFC - 33
  2. Amyros - 25
  3. Asteras Itea - 21
  4. Niki Volos - 21
  5. APO Amvrysseas - 20

Group 5 (10 games played):

The two Asteras teams, representing Vlachioti and Amaliada respectively, are battling hard at the top of the table. Vlachioti currently own the upper hand, boasting a four point lead and undefeated in ten matches. Paniliakos and Kalamata are in a distant joint third, six points away from Vlachioti.

  1. Asteras Vlachioti - 24
  2. Asteras Amaliada - 20
  3. Paniliakos - 18
  4. Kalamata - 18
  5. Panarkadios - 16

Group 6 (nine games played):

Proodeftiki are in superb form, losing one match in ten and thumping Zevgolateio 5:0 in their previous fixture. Nevertheless, despite being six points clear of second placed Ethnikos Piraeus, Proodeftiki have played a game more than their rivals. Diagoras and Rodos, clubs based on the island of Rhodes, are level on 15 points.

  1. Proofedtiki - 23 (ten games played)
  2. Ethnikos Piraeus - 17
  3. Diagoras - 15
  4. Rodos - 15
  5. Ialysos - 14

Group 7 (nine games played):

Just like in Group 6, leaders Aittitos Spata have played ten games, while the rest have only competed in nine matches. Aittitos are in control of the table, thrashing Ermis Kiveri 3:0 on Sunday to take a five point lead into the new year. Chalkida are in second place with 18 points on the board.

  1. Aittitos Spata - 23 (ten games played)
  2. Chalkida - 18
  3. Panargiakos - 13 (eight games played)
  4. Enosi Ermionida - 12
  5. Diagoras Agia Paraskevi - 11

Group 8 (nine games played):

Irodotos enter the Christmas break in first place, but Atsalenios and Egaleo do have a game in hand and can move within two points if they win their tenth fixtures. In the final match of 2017, Irodotos surprisingly failed to beat bottom club Mylopotamos.

  1. Irodotos - 21 (ten games played)
  2. Atsalenios  - 16
  3. Egaleo - 16 
  4. Ilsiakos - 14 
  5. Ierapetra - 13
