Big clash between AEK and AEL ends in stalemate.

The big clash between AEK and AEL ended in a goalless stalemate, as a full midweek programme in the Cyprus football championship kicked-off on Wednesday evening.

In a dour first half, neither side were able to create any chances with both more intent on not allowing their opponents to break forward.

The second half started well with AEK's Taulemesse racing clear but his shot went well wide.

AEL's first chance came after the hour mark but defender Lafrance somehow managed to shoot wide from close range.

AEK created two more chances through Acoran and Larena but AEL goalkeeper Vozinia was not to be beaten with both sides feeling that they dropped two points rather than gaining one at the final whistle.

Earlier, Olympiakos beat Ethnikos Achnas 3-2 in an entertaining game in Nicosia.

Olympiakos took the lead in the fifth minute through Sotiriou but their lead lasted just eight minutes as Pinceli equalised from the penalty spot.

Torres deservedly restored Olympiakos' lead early in the second half but a spectacular long-range effort five minutes from time by Pinceli again restored parity.

Olympiakos though were not to be denied and their skipper Samaras scored the winner from the penalty spot with virtually the last kick of the game to give his team the precious three points.

AEL host AEK, while leaders Anorthosis face champions Apoel in Wednesday's other games.
