Dull 90 Minutes in Xanthi

-- Dull 90 Minutes in Xanthi --


Xanthi 0 - 0 Atromitos

The sixth round of the 2016/17 Greek SuperLeague came to an end on Monday evening with a drab affair in Xanthi as the home team and Atromitos finished 0-0. It was a game full of errors and low on goal scoring chances. After 90 dull minutes it was easy to see why both teams have only each scored once after four games this season. 

Both teams created a series of half chances, however not once did either side threaten with any major opportunities. It was the latest in a series of 0-0 draws in the SuperLeague over the last few weeks, however this may have been the worst game of the season thus far. Such was the absence of anything approaching quality build-up play or creativity in and around the box, the match was perhaps one of the worst advertisements of the game we have seen for some time. The result leaves Xanthi in 15th place with a mere two points from their first four matches. Atromitos meanwhile climb above Kerkyra into a tie for 10th place as they go to four points on the season.
