The Colombian returned several appetite after absence for punishment, with its good performance to seal it with a certain artistic goals and actions. The defense of the Renaissance especially in the first part with anything they could to limit the action of Laborde.[48]

The ranked unattractive AEK Larnakas managed to stop Anorthosis and could not get the victory, since players of "Lady" is not shown in any case that is in the battle title and deserve to have hope on March 11. While the AEK was better in most of the race, managed to equalize quickly scored Kvirkvelia the third minute with a superb finish of the young Kyprianou at 34', while the Anorthosis had opportunities to get the win, but made even a modest emergence of a critical match.[49]

fair victory with Anorthosis 2-1 against Olympiakos Nicosia in Andonis Papadopoulos even scoring two goals in the first half on march 17.[50] Only managed Olympiakos Nicosia was to reduce. I did not ... take the Anorthosis to lose, everyone knew that the "Lady" and from the first second came determined to get their 3points. So when the "home team" took the reins of the game, they managed their first good step in the 8' to open the scoring after the ball vertical Marquinhos back defending the Olympicakos, Laborde managed Ernestas Šetkus to exit the, She has marketed the put team in place ... guide. Once the "Guests" somehow managed to balance the match came in Janício Martins 37' to make the 2 - 0, giving precedence to the most serious team, taking advantage anampoumpoula defense of "Mavroprasinon" tried and both groups the start of the second half to be imposed. By completing one hours play, however, the rate fell. So we got to 78' and a phase that does not smell goal came the reduction of scores from the Olympiakos, was the free kick from the left, higher than all the cast with a header and Duarte made his 2 to 1. In the remaining minutes, the Anorthosis could achieve any goal, Olympiacos was harmless, the goal never came and so the 2-1 was meant to be and the final result. MVP: The Laborde for both goals scored and for general picture.[51]

Cold shower for Anorthosis at the end, the "Lady" had control of the game for 91 minutes, went ahead on 26 minutes with Rezek, lost opportunities, had control, but the game ends when the referee whistles, this is believed to Apollo "stole" the extent, with the goal of Joao Paulo on 92' on March 25.[52] In the early stages came close to us "asleep." Both teams were trying to impose their rhythm, more than two wings. And after the first phase came in 4', the next was the goal in 26'. In the first essential step, Anorthosis opened the scoring. He was shot in the vertical axis of Okkas, found a place in the right Rezek, he had time to sprint to defend Aleš Chvalovský Apollon and the expense to do with viewing the 1 - 0. In the next phase, a little lack to mate goals of the "Lady" when saliva came face-to-face with Chvalovsky, passed the Goalkeeper of Apollon, but delayed the plasma found Merkis and then to the right beam. Ten minutes had to pass to become a stage, and that Anorthosis when saliva found on the left with the 30 meters long pass to Rezek, he downed a nice ball, but his shot was blocked and the lukewarm Aleš Chvalovský. In the final two minutes of the first half, Apollon came close to call when the first phase, trolling kickoff Cissokho shot from the left, found the root of the right spar Kozatsik, while the second Stavrou from the shaft, just outside from the large area, got the shot but the ball ended up out. With the kickoff in the second half, the picture of the two groups were almost identical to the first half. Apollon tried to raise the lines and push, ineffective and even though the Anorthosis was more dangerous, as he found space on the counterattacks. And while all showed that 1 - 0 for the Anorthosis and it was finished, came Joao Paulo, taking advantage of the head of Merkis, he has marketed by Kozatsik, equaling to 1 to 1 and even more difficult the task of Anorthosis in the playoffs.[53]

The quick goals with Anorthosis with Kvirkvelia on 4' are not conditions stop the AEL, which came immediately to equalize with Dede on 17'. But in the second half neither team risked and stayed 1-1 until the end on March 31.[54] Best start he could not imagine Anorthosis, which took precedence even before completion of the fourth minute of the game! The extraordinary effort by the right Rezek completed kickoff in the area where the unattended Dutton Kvirkvelia made it 1-0 with a strong shot. The quick goals gave no feathers on the "Lady", as the AEL balancing the game and immediately warned the Anorthosis with a possible long shot of Monteiro 12'. Two minutes after the hosts lost opportunity for the classic 2-0, Rezek danced when the opposing defense, the nearby plasma but was repelled by the hard Degra 14'. The equalizer for FC did not take long to come but had to make a mistake in assessing the Kozatsik foul. The Dede just pushed the ball up close, after the repulse of the unstable Anorthosis goalkeeper, who was not a good day, since in many cases was unstable and offered no confidence in his teammates. In one of the outputs of a bad foul by Gilberto was fortunate enough not to Anorthosis a player of AEL towards the ball to send it into the net (38'). Two minutes after plasma Baby after all of Carlitos just passed out, the last phase of the good first half ended with imichronou.To clear possession of the ball for the AEL (close to 65%), but to repeat Anorthosis has improved in this area, but do not rise much above 40%. The repetition, however, the phases were fewer. In a three-minute-fire, AEL had three chances to get ahead: the Monteiro came to counterattack, but sentrare wrong in the area over the Kozatsik while his teammates were unmarked 58'. New error Kozatsik no cost to kick off the "Lady" since she managed to fix Colin 59'. One minute after the failed Dickson keeps control over a great deep ball into the area 60'. Even fewer stages in the last half hour, with Monteiro be located in the 74', but delayed and Rezek to lose the best chance of recurrence with Anorthosis header to repel Degra 76'. The Rezek and penalties sought in the process but that the Argentine goalkeeper does not seem to touch the 79' One minute before the Marios Nicolaou tried to "hang" by far the Kozatsik unstable, but he repelled difficult.[55]


With one goal in 5 minutes of each half and top Laborde again, Anorthosis went through the empty GSP with 1-2 5' Rezek, 50' Laborde / 67' Manduca) and limited the title hopes of APOEL, increasing their own chances of finding the next year in Europe, regardless Cup on April 8.[56] Anorthosis no longer have to wait what will happen in the Cup, so it knows whether to go to Europe and the fourth championship since now arrived at a short distance from Omonia third. Return to Cyprus League after a stunning career in Champions League was abnormal for APOEL, who did not follow the "double" on the Concorde last week. After this defeat, the "orange blues" stayed five points behind the AEL, which compete in the next two games. Anorthosis scored its first opportunity in a superb counterattack the Lavorde unfolded, with a point shot Rezek be foisted on 0-1. The "Lady" was succeeded by the early goal and then left the initiative in APOEL. The "orange blues" had possession of the ball (58% -42% in the first half), but that was meaningless. Guests vindicated the choice to wait for the opponent as little threatened in the first half. Just had two chances APOEL at this time. In 30' Adorno found in the vertical ball Marcinho who untargeted She has marketed, with Ailton not enough time to make close-up view. At 41' Manduca amarkaristos got good header, but passed out. The scene was repeated in the repetition of the APOEL keep the ball and Rehabilitation to transform into the first goal of a good time. It was at 50' when Okkas and Ronkato changed the ball before it reaches the Laborde, who after a nice individual action beat Chian, taking the 0-2. After the second goal APOEL awakened and began to push and lose some opportunities. Foremost exponent of the Manduca, but the biggest missed opportunity is Solari, whom he took a position Ailton a Wed Wed the plasma but went just over the crossbar 64'. In the crossbar and went to try the Jorge at 63', but the stage was as void, because his hand had been a Portuguese defense. The pressure bore fruit with APOEL Manduca to exploit parallel with plasma kickoff of Solari 67'. The Brazilian had a new chance in 78', but the header went out. Despite the decrease, however, the score and ball possession in favor of APOEL, Anorthosis held without major problems, the 1-2, taking a great victory in GSP! MVP: Laborde. It was through both phases of goals! The first goal gave ready Rezek in the second he danced APOEL defense and scored.[57]

Even with ten players (Laborde miscarriage at 77'), Anorthosis defeat again empty GSP winning by 1-2 with goals, Omonia in the delays! on April 21.[58] The "Lady" was preceded with Marquinhos in 60', with Omonia reaching the equalizer with Aloneftis (84'), but not to keep. Although a numerical disadvantage, Anorthosis arrived at yet another "double" after the tremendous energy of Okka with the Roncatto score at 93'. The chief exponent of the aggressive actions of Aloneftis, Omonia tried to get his head to score in the first half, which, however, the more conventional opportunities belonged to Anorthosis. Very nice plasma Aloneftis just passed the bar next to the first great moment of the race (7'), the "Lady" to respond immediately. Alabi, Karipidis and Margaça confused in corners and on contact with Rezek shot and sent the ball just over the crossbar (10'). At 23' the Rezek shoot through the area, but the ball found in colleges of defenders, with Anorthosis to waste a good opportunity. Suspected opportunity in this 31' long shot with the Aloneftis passed over the bar. Anorthosis protested a penalty phase Lavorde found in the ground after pushing the Margaça (35'). At 44' the Laborde found Kvirkvelia the left, the great kick-off of which reached the Marquinhos within the region, the strong shot but just passed beside the bar. The defensive function of the Concorde was a question mark before the game, the phase of the 49' but the head-Ronkato found in a location Wed Wed Rasheed Alabi opened the exemplary cut and clean the ball. The hosts responded with a good chance in 57' when he found Eftem, Bergougnoux in the area but the shot was good and went over the bar. As against the APOEL, so opposite in Omonia, Anorthosis struck first (against the "galazokitrinous" course had been too early), opening the scoring on 60 minutes. From foul in with Kyriakos Lavorde bar area near the line outs, came in 0-1 with the Colombian to perform and Marquinhos to score with a header. The goal gave wings to the guests, who could create a hazard in 64' when Lavorde found in beautiful Bali Rezek only in the heart of the region, the Czech Republic to lose control. From Laborde started or spent most aggressive action Anorthosis, but even a foolhardy Colombian brought the elimination of the 77', and when he had a card in possible makrarisma Aloneftis and rightly saw a second yellow. A miscarriage that changed the flow of the match against Omonia to raise the blood pressure and reaches the plasma equalize the best player in the match, the Aloneftis (84'). Four minutes after the Aloneftis found near the rollover, but failed to score. Anorthosis but had not said the last word. An amazing energy of the Okka 93' brought the second goal scorer in the Anorthosis Roncatto. New "Double" for the "Lady". MVP: Roncatto. The more stable in performance score of the player, there was quite menacing and helped very creative piece. He succeeded and the winning goal.[59]

After the great "double" "Omonia regained third place in scoring, putting the tombstone of Anorthosis title dreams, which fell to fourth place. Ben Dayan 43', Alves 67', 74' and Bergougnoux 89' the scorers of Omonia.[60] With a last minute problem began Omonia, with Efrem to be off the mission because of injury, as informed by "green" before the match starts. That went well in the derby was Anorthosis, which had the psychology of consecutive victories in the playoffs. Once in the 3' Okkas found in the area and fell to the ground, but the branding of Karipidis to justify the suggestion penalty requested by the home team. The phase stirred protests from side Anorthosis that was overturned by the early numerical balance, the "Lady" to be left with ten men for 17 minutes after marking hard from behind, Janício Martins tackly with both feet Aloneftis. Needless possible Janicio marking the center of the court, to the point that there was no danger. Despite the expulsion, the Anorthosis kept the reins of the match and was one that had the best chances in the first half: a miscarriage before the shot with just Evandro Roncatto outs 13' and then with a double long shot Evandro Roncatto and the new shot Okkas outside the region, to repel the Georgallides in both cases. Omonia showed early weakness to exploit the numerical advantage, but after the first half hour took possession of the ball and took the initiative. He could, however, to make dangerous phases. There was, however, highly effective, since seized the first opportunity that was: a foul by-side position near the line-outs performed by the Aloneftis, Ben Dayan header Nailed formed with the 0-1 (43'). Ronny Levy did not make changes after the elimination of Tzanisio, shifting the defense Marquinhos. At 52' but passed instead of the Jan Rezek and put Marko Andić in ... position, defense, restoring the Marquinhos center. Anorthosis was held at the beginning of the second half, but it was meaningless, since Omonia was tightly closed and did not accept phases. Neither created phases guests, but were highly effective in this game. So the second essentially doubled the chance of the finishes, putting ... and end the game. The Christofi was unable to win the Kozatsik from repelling unstable and whose failure to prosecute defense came near the plasma Alves for 0-2 67'. The Brazilian striker needed goals to regain confidence and scored a second goal, making the ball Spougkin took him to a location Wed Wed the 74' 0-3. Omonia came in fourth and goal, giving dimensions triumph in winning the Bergougnoux 89'.[61]


With the goal of Babe 74' the AEL ascended the throne of Cyprus football after 44 years. The Angola player gave the victory to his team's 1-0 against Anorthosis, sent his friends to AEL 7 skies to win the sixth championship in history. The AEL was the team entered the stadium having the opposite story ... but to lift not only to resist strongly but also seeks to ... acts of the goal. From the first minutes both teams showed their desire to compete with aggressive approaches. Before completing one minutes Okkas race found in the area of the AEL Jrunior to catch up and the ball ends up in the hands of Degra. AEL's response came in 3 minutes when Dede tried a header to open the scoring in the firing position to avoids Laban on the line. The AEL has tried to impose its rhythm on the lift to wait and grow gradually. The Okkas at 14' left behind the defense of AEL and shot through the area sent the ball out. Four minutes later Gilberto with distant-shooting technician marked the crossbar of Kozatsik in a space that "galazokitrini" gipediki had the ascendancy. At 19' from near the Dickson took advantage of the defensive line inactive Anorthosis at the heart of the area and shot sent the ball into the right crossbar Kozatsik. The Baby with "warm" impossible shots not worried Anorthosis goalkeeper in remarkable unique opportunity in the third quarter of the race. In 35' Vincent Laban lost the unique opportunity through the area after the Roncatto assists to give precedence to Anorthosos the Degra repel. The last chance of the first part of the Dixon header sent the ball out. The AEL went into the second half to win peismomenoi and 50' by Dickson lost his first chance with a diagonal shot. Sato 57' leader Nikolaos long shot sent the ball out. At 74' the Babe after switching the ball to Voou came in and left-Way opened the scoring. In 81' Silas to shoot was not able to double its goal of AEL. In the last minutes of Limassol team kept the score in favor of and in conjunction with the victory of Omonia in GSP was crowned champion of Cyprus for the 2011-2012 season.[62]

Two "catastrophic" errors from the Anorthosis defense brought two goals and APOEL first victory on the "essential" to 2-1 this year in "Antonis Papadopoulos". Scorers for APOEL Marcinho in the 37', Solari at the 60th minute, while Okkas reduced immediately after the 61st minute. Anorthosis went too hard in the match and took the reins of the game, creating the first opportunity, but Lavorde and Roncatto could not find the target, so until the 30th minute, the "Lady" could not translate its superiority in goals. This succeeded in APOEL 37th minute when Jurgen Colin made a serious mistake, actually gave the ball to Marcinho, he went and Gavriel Constantinou he has marketed and targeted. APOEL preceded the goal Marcinho, although the lift was better in most of the first half, had the initiative, but it was cool to the last pass. By the end of the first half could not threaten Anorthosis and the score was 0-1 at halftime. On several occasions, missed the good phases, although in the 53rd minutes Soouza nearly scored when a foul ball that performed oppose Gavriel Constantinou and started following the outbreak of Anorthosis drove a corner away. In the 60th minute came the second mistake from the defense side Anorthosis Andic as the "gift made" in Tričkovski the ball, he spent the Gavriel Constantinou turned the ball into an empty Solari and sent her home in the nets making it 2-0 favor of APOEL. In the next phase, the Okkas reduced to a 2-1 Anorthosis, as did the nice Marquinhos while all the leader of the "Lady" was cast in the path of the ball and scored. By the end of the race, tried to Anorthosis the pressure on the tie, but kept the APOEL 2-1 in favor of and got his first victory this year against the "Lady".[63]
