Anorthosis form and stats

Three has not been a lucky number for Anorthosis as they have been defeated three times in a row since the Omonia Nicosia match. Anorthosis seem to be suffering from homesickness with two consecutive losses away. Third time lucky?

Anorthosis are travelling again after losing away to AEK Larnaca in their previous match (1-2). A loss against AEL was the result prior to that, in a home game.

A new game in only four days for Anorthosis, the Cyprus Cup home match versus APOEL. Busy days.

It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. 13 goals have been conceded by Anorthosis in these games.
