Lamia comes to this game without knowing what it is to win for the competition. After six rounds the team is in the last position of the Greek championship. It shows great imbalance in the field, with an ineffective attack and a defense that suffers many goals. His fans hope that at least playing at home the team will give them some joy. The visiting team have suffered goals in every game they played away from home, which can motivate Lamia, who have difficulty scoring.
The visiting team is currently in 7th position, with 10 points won, after 3 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses. In the penultimate match, they won at home against OFI by (1‑0). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Aris by (1‑0). This is a stronger team with the support of its fans, since in the last 30 games it has registered 4 victories, 3 draws and 8 defeats as a visitor, with 14 goals scored and 23 suffered; against 9 victories and 6 draws in his stadium, with 27 goals scored and 7 suffered. In their last 4 away matches for the championship, Asteras Tripolis registers 1 win, 1 draw and 2 losses, for which they have won 4 points out of 12 possible. In the last 20 home matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 8 of their 20 goals between minutes (76’ ‑ 90 ‘).
Asteras are making a championship in the middle of the table, but still close to the top ranked in the table. Despite coming from a defeat, the team had already shown an evolution and grown in the competition. He will go with the hope of adding the three points in this match, because the rival is in a gigantic crisis. But first he will have to adjust his defensive system, which has suffered many goals away from home.
