APOEL remain unbeaten after Apollon clash

APOEL’s coach Ivan Jovanovic was pleased with his team’s 1-0 victory over Apollon Limassol in the fourth round of the national championship on Sunday afternoon at the GSP Stadium in Nicosia.

“This was a match with a high pace, and usually a team whose players are more focused wins at the end,” said Jovanovic. “I believe we won the match fairly, although we were not at our best throughout the match.

CYPRUS slid deeper into recession in the second quarter of the year, according to preliminary data released this week, with economic output contracting by 0.8 per cent on a quarterly basis as most sectors of the economy suffered bar tourism and banking.
