Surprise of the season so far!
Champions Apoel frustrated on Monday as ALKI Oroklinis held the Nicosia side at the GSP Stadium to a 0-0 draw.
APOEL failed to get the all important goal despite winning a penalty, captain Nuno Morais could not convert from the spot Urko Parko the opposition goalkeeper kept the score at 0-0.
The champions were double frustrated when Lucas Sousa received a second yellow card and remained with 10 men for the last 19 minutes of the game.
With that shock result Apoel are still top of the Cyprus Championship but now only a point in front of second place Apollon Limassol.
ALKI Oroklinis on the other hand were excellent tactically and frustrated their opponents and left Nicosia with a well deserved point and remain firmly away from the relegation spots.
