Kainari FC vs IQ Option (O)

Knowing that the ranking on the table wouldn’t have changed no matter the result, with Kainari FC being champions and IQ Option Orange runners up, this game apart from the interest for the individual awards was just important in terms of prestige.

Columbia vs RCB

Having no pressure on them, both teams wanted to enjoy their last game and play some attacking football. And they did it in the most spectacular way! 
In terms of statistics and individual awards, the match mattered for Marios Shittas who was an assist behind Yiannis Pieridis on the assist leaders’ table. Unfortunately for him and his team, he didn’t give any assist at this game however, Yiannis Shittas was on fire and scored a hat trick which helped him to end up as a runner up in the best goalscorers’ table.
We have to congratulate RCB side as well though as they scored three goals and they made this match beautiful and unpredictable. It was a fairly balanced match as the score was even 1-1 at first half with the final score being 3-3.
Columbia ended up as third on the table whereas RCB a position below, on the fourth place.

15th Round – The Last Three Matches

The last three fixtures of the league will take place on Monday 18th of February in the presence of the best football manager of Cypriot football as voted for 2016-17 and 2017-2018 seasons, Mr Sofronis Avgousti. It is an honour for us that Mr Avgousti has accepted our invitation and he will be the person to give the team and individual awards. 
 
All three games will be played at 8.30 pm. The first one is that of our Champions Kainary FC against the runners up IQ Option Orange. No pressure will be on teams and they will both try to enjoy the game however there are individual records that may be decided by that game especially the best assist leader award. 
 
At the second match, Columbia is facing RCB. In theory the game is slightly more important for RCB as they want the three points in order to secure the fourth position, However Columbia will aim to win the game too and close the season in the best possible way after the defeat at their last match against Kainari FC,
 
The last fixture is that between the two bottom sides of the table BDS and IQ Option Black. IQ Option Black will play an open and attacking game and try to double up their victories after their first win at the last round. On the contrary, BDS can finish the league fourth in case they win and at the same time, RCB lose point(s) at their game.
 
At this point we would like to thank all teams and congratulate them for making the league exciting and competitive.
 
Well done to everybody!
 

Fair And Well-Deserved Champions!

Kainari FC vs Columbia

Kainari FC was the team with the pressure on their shoulders as they needed the win in order to celebrate the title. Kainari FC though is also a team with quality players, team spirit, confidence and with the ability to win crucial games. Despite being a highly important match for them they made it look really easy as they played open, attacking football with no moment in the game aiming to decrease the tempo.

By scoring two goals at the first and four goals at the second half, Kainari FC triumphed with 6-1 against Columbia.
Miltiadis Vasilleiou with a hat trick, Konstantinos Odysseos with two and Charis Charalampous with one goal were the players to secure the title for Kainari FC in an emphatic way.
Columbia has entered the pitch only physically as at no moment of the match they have shown that they deserve something from that game. With one round to go, they will finish the league third however they want to do it with a victory against RCB.

On the other hand, Kainari FC will go on their last game against their all season title rivals IQ Option Orange by already being champions. There was no more satisfying way for them to finish the season than this.
They deserved it one hundred percent and nobody can deny that they are fair champions. Being the best attacking as well as a defensive side of the league along with the fact that they have won both fixtures against their title rivals IQ Option Orange proves the latter.

Well done Kainari FC!

 

Finally They Did It!

RCB vs IQ Option (B)

13 matches without a win were a lot! At the 14th one IQ Option Black got their first victory in a dramatic way!
To be fair, at the last matches IQ Option Black were fighting and giving one hundred percent in order to celebrate a win.
They didn’t give up and yesterday against RCB got the three points that they deserved.

IQ Option Black started the game fully motivated and by playing attacking football managed to score two goals. A dramatic second half took place as RCB turned the game and were in front with 3-2. Despite having no victory up to that point, IQ Option Black had the mental and physical power to score two goals and finally to win the game with 4-3.
They couldn’t have done it though without the vital contribution of Nikos Rentoumis who was on an outstanding form by scoring three goals in addition to assisting one.

RCB need a win at their last fixture as they are now not feeling safe in regard to the fourth position with BDS that face IQ Option Black being just two points away. On the other hand though, IQ Option Black despite the fact that they will finish the championship battle on the bottom of the table no matter their result on the last game, they want to double up their victories and prove themselves as real warriors that never give up.

14th Round – Two More Games To Go

Three more games will take place for the 14th round of the league on Monday the 4th of February.
 
Kainari FC will face Columbia with the game being highly important mostly for Kainary FC side. They are just two wins away from celebrating the title and have to be serious in order to win the first one. On the other hand, Columbia will most probably finish on the third position however they want to close this championship battle in the best possible way for them.
 
IQ Option Orange will aim to get the three points against BDS and hope Kainary FC will lose to Columbia in order to catch them on the top of the table. BDS want to win with the target of fourth place being a realistic goal for them.
 
The last fixture is that between RCB and IQ Option Black. IQ Option Black have nothing to lose and they will try to play attractive football as they did on Monday against IQ Option Orange. 
On the contrary, RCB want to finish the league fourth and in order to do that, they have to get the three points at their upcoming match.  
 
All the best to all teams!
