Atromitos hosts Lamia in round 21 of the Greek Super League. The match will be played on Thursday, February 3rd at Peristeri Stadium (Athens)
Not so long ago, Atromitos probably experienced the most successful period in its history. The Fearless tried their hand in the Europa League six times from 2012 to 2019, but they managed to beat only AIK and DAK during this time. Atromitos also managed to take third place and reached the cup final twice. However, the club was gradually losing ground, and the last championship brought only a modest 8th place. And now the Blue-Whites are in the penultimate position. The figures are terrible: two victories and only ten points scored in 18 matches. In the last six matches, Atromitos gained only one draw and suffered four defeats, including 0-2 against AEK Athens in the last home match and 2-1 on the pitch of Ionikos.

Lamia used to play at a regional level for a long time. It was only in the middle of the last decade that the Cyan-Whites managed to break into the 2nd division of the country. And in 2017, they finally gained promotion to the top league of Greece. From the 2nd attempt, the newcomer even climbed to seventh place, but it remains not only the maximum result but also looks like an outright exception. After that, Lamia managed to round out the top ten twice in a row. Perhaps the team won’t repeat such an outcome in the current season. After 18 matches, it has only 15 points and takes 11th place, lagging behind Panetolikos and Volos by three and six points, respectively. However, Lamia has gained good momentum recently. The Cyan-Whites eliminated Aris in the cup, tied against it in the Super League, and beat Ionikos and OFI Crete. Such results allowed them to break away from the relegation zone.
Six of the last seven head-to-head matches (including the last three) between Atromitos and Lamia ended in a draw. And the away side has not managed to win an official match since 2015. Now Atromitos is in a deep crisis, and Lamia has gained good momentum. We think that the visitors will earn at least one point in the upcoming game.
