“Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated” - Mark Twain

It’s an incredibly exciting week for PreMatches. We are happy to announce that PreMatches is under new management and effective immediately the operations will resume as usual.

Since its inception, PreMatches has been focused on analysing tens of thousands of soccer games every year and little about this will change. We are still PreMatches; we still post soccer analysis. Moving forward, we will be bringing our technology, tools, and team to PreMatches. We are simply bringing more to the table: more to the community and, importantly, more fresh content and better analysis. In upcoming months you can expect to see lots of new content and refresh of the design.

We would like to thank our customers and partners for all of their support!

2014-04-11 Van Leeuwen op Cyprus aan slag

Ted van Leeuwen heeft een nieuwe baan gevonden. Hij gaat op Cyprus als technisch directeur aan de slag bij Anorthosis Famagusta, de huidige nummer 6 van de competitie. Van Leeuwen vertrok vorig jaar bij Vitesse, waar hij tijdens de roerige periode onder de toenmalige eigenaar Merab Jordania verantwoordelijk was voor de technische zaken. Eerder werkte hij als technisch directeur bij AGOVV.

2014-03-21 Relegation battle versus race for the top spot

By Iacovos Constantinou This weekend sees the beginning of the playoffs with the relegation (positions 7-12) fixtures being played on Saturday and the group (positions 1-6) that will challenge for the championship on Sunday. Each team will have a total of thirty points (10 games) to play for so the final standings in both groups may change considerably. Leaders AEL travel to the Antonis Papadopoulos to face Anorthosis and anything but a win for the Limassol team will come as...

APOEL

2014-04-14 AEL continue march towards title

By Iacovos Constantinou AEL continued their march towards their second league title in three years with a 2-0 win over Omonia while their nearest rivals APOEL squeezed past a resilient Anorthosis. In the relegation battle, Aris moved out of the danger zone for the first time in months with Doxa Katokopias moving in the other direction. “When you create six to seven goal-scoring opportunities against one of the meanest defences in the league and fail to score you will...

2014-04-10 Cyprus’ Crazy Gang through to the cup final

By Iacovos Constantinou Two goals in extra time by substitute Andreas Papathanasiou sent Ermis through to the final of the Coca-Cola cup where they will now meet favourites APOEL on May 21. It was a historic day for underdogs Ermis Aradippou who defeated cup holders Apollon by 4-1 in a pulsating game. After a goalless first half Ermis took the lead through their top scorer Marco Tagbajumi just after the break. Their joy was shortlived as three minutes later a...

2014-04-08 Crunch time in Cyprus Cup semis

By Iacovos Constantinou THE second legs of the Cyprus Cup semi-finals will take place on Wednesday with Apollon defending a slender 2-1 lead when they travel to Larnaca to face Ermis Aradippou, while the winner of the other semi is all but official as favourites APOEL thumped four goals past Doxa Katokopias in the first leg. Ermis Aradippou, the surprise team of the year, will be hoping to make it to the Cup final for the first time...

2014-04-04 Local derbies dominate Cyprus playoffs

By Iacovos Constantinou DESPITE being only into the third of a total of ten playoff games, the two local derbies in the top group between Apollon v AEL in Limassol and Omonia v APOEL may well prove decisive. Apollon know that only a win against their local rivals will keep their slim hopes of the championship alive. Apollon will be without their experienced defender Karipidis and midfielder Gullon, who are both serving a one match suspension. However they welcome...

2014-04-03 Slender win for Apollon, APOEL hit four past Doxa

By Iacovos Constantinou A last gasp winner by Garcia gave Apollonas a narrow lead over Ermis while in the other first leg semi-final tie APOEL all but booked their place in the final with a resounding 4-1 over Doxa Katokopias. After a cagey start from both sides at the Tsireion stadium, Apollonas took the lead in the 18th minute through Abraham following some good play by Gaston Sangoy. Chances were few and far between in the first half with the...

2014-04-01 Minnows ready for Cyprus Cup semi-finals

By Iacovos Constantinou THE first legs of the Cyprus Coca-Cola Cup semi-finals take place today with Apollon facing Ermis Aradippou and APOEL taking on outsiders Doxa Katokopia. Apollon, having faltered recently in the league, know that their best chance of silverware now is the cup and will try to make the most of the first leg in Limassol in front of their vociferous fans. Ermis Aradippou, who surprised a few this season with their attractive play, are in a...

2014-03-31 Top two increase their advantage at the top in Cyprus

By Iacovos Constantinou THE two teams leading the championship race, AEL and APOEL, strengthened their position at the top as they increased their advantage from third-placed Apollon. In the survival scramble Doxa Katokopias can no longer feel safe as they are just a couple of points away from the relegation zone. In one of their best performances so far this season, champions APOEL thrashed a dreadful Apollon 3-0. The Nicosia giants were in control from the outset, attacking...

2014-03-28 Battle in Cyprus hotting up

By Iacovos Constantinou THE clash at the GSP stadium between second-placed APOEL and third-placed Apollon stands out in the battle for the Cyprus championship, while in the relegation scramble, AEK Kouklion take on Aris Limassol in a must-win game for both sides. Champions APOEL have an impressive home league record against Apollon. The last time they dropped points was more than four years ago while their last loss dates back to 2000. The Nicosia giants will be at full...

2014-03-26 APOEL get luck of the draw, again

2014-03-24 AEL and APOEL win as playoffs get underway

By Iacovos Constantinou AEL and APOEL were the winners on the first day of the playoffs with the third game between Apollon and Omonia ending in a goaless draw. In the relegation playoffs, AEK Kouklion lost with their nearest rivals, Aris and Ethnkos Achnas both winning. Two goals in the opening twenty minutes from Saccheti and Kaluderovic and a third from Edmar in the final minute of the first half were enough to give AEL all three points against...

ELO Ratings:

The rating was originally developed by Arpad Elo for rating chess players. The basic idea is that you should be rated by how you do versus the strength of your opponent. A poor team winning against a strong team will recieve a better rating than if the strong team won against a poor team. Each team start with 1500 in rating at the start of each season.
