The season is still fairly new and the Super League table has to be read with caution. So far Larissa find themselves in 12th position and Asteras Tripolis are placed 8th.

Larissa form and stats

The first Super League game here at Stadio Alkazar resulted in a draw. Last season Larissa's home game statistics were 6 victories, 5 draws and 6 defeats from 17 games.

Larissa faced defeat in their previous match, away at Apollon Smirnis (0-1). The spoils were shared after 90 minutes before that, a home game that ended 1-1 versus Panathinaikos.

The defeat against Apollon Smirnis was especially painful as the deciding goal against was scored one minutes into stoppage time (by F. Andoni).

This is expected to be a close game, with Larissa perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Larissa as a small favourite), we find seven games. Larissa has won four of these, drawn two and lost one.

It's still early days, but we have some goal stats for the Larissa at home in the league. 1 on target and 1 scored by the opposition; from 1 match.

Asteras Tripolis form and stats

Still no away game victory in the Super League for Asteras Tripolis with 1 draw and 1 loss from their first 2 attempts.

It's another away game for the visitors, as they travelled to Panaitolikos (placed 11th) in their previous outing. The Super League match ended in a draw 1-1. Ahead of that match was the away draw versus Panaitolikos that ended 1-1.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Asteras Tripolis playing away and similar expectations, we found six relevant matches. Results were one Asteras Tripolis win, four draws and one defeat.

1 goal so far away for Asteras Tripolis, while their defence has allowed the opposition to score 4. All from 2 league matches away.
