Together to the Superleague
GREEK football LEAGUE - matchday 30
|Lamia||0 - 0||Apollon Smyrnis|
Apollon Smyrnis and Lamia played to a goalless draw in Sunday’s Greek Football League derby, a result that leaves both teams favored to earn promotion to next year’s Superleague.
In a rather uneventful match at the Lamia Municipal Stadium, Lamia and Apollon Smyrnis played to a goalless draw, a result that left both teams content. The hosts wasted the only good chance of the match when Chiotis denied Durmishaj’s effort at the start of the second half.
The draw keeps Apollon Smyrnis in first place of the Football League standings, six points ahead of second placed Lamia and nine points clear of third placed Aris. Second placed Lamia hold the final promotion spot and are six points ahead of third placed Aris.
With four games remaining, Apollon Smyrnis need one point to mathematically secure promotion while Lamia only need four points. On the other hand, Aris must defeat Lamia in next week's derby in Thessaloniki to keep their slim hopes for promotion alive. A reminder that all three teams are scheduled to play Panthrakikos, who have removed themselves from the league, and will be awarded all three points in those fixtures.
