Larissa form and stats

The home fans haven’t been spoiled with victories in the Super League this season. Larissa, who have the fewest points (5) at home in Super League, have only managed 0 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses from their games here at Stadio Alkazar. All in all it has been a very rough period for Larissa who hasn’t won a league-game in their last 15 attempts. Their previous win was against PAS Giannina, 112 days ago. Larissa are slowly digging their own grave here at Stadio Alkazar with the depressing streak of not having won a home league game in ten attempts. The last victory here came in the Panathinaikos match.

Preceding that match was a defeat to AEK Athens (2-4).

The bookmakers consider this a fairly even contest. One could say only the home advantage separates the teams. It could be relevant to look at how Larissa have performed in matches similar to this (as small favourites). Our database has found ten matches with the results: Won three, drawn four and lost three.

The match schedule is unforgiving for Larissa as they have a new game in only four days, a Super League match thankfully also at home. Panaitolikos are visiting.

Larissa has huge difficulties finding the net and are scoring on average only once per two home matches in the league: 5 goals from 10 games. Larissa have conceded 14 in these home matches.

Lamia lost the plot completely in their previous game, as mentioned above. They need to recover quickly from that 0-4 beating and focus on this one.
