While he's the least likely entrant on this list, Giannou's AEK Lancarna only sit six points off the lead in Cyprus after 29 matches, giving him a strong shot of taking out the Cypriot first division title this season.

To make it even more enticing, a 10-man AEK just defeated Cypriot giants and league leaders APOEL Nicosia 1-0 on Monday. Given it's a Championship round structure, anything can happen from this stage.

It's also worth noting because this would be a huge coup for the Larnaca club, which is only 24 years old and has never won the league title, falling in the shadow of the cashed-up regular Champions League entrants from Nicosia.

What's perhaps more interesting is that the small Cypriot club have done it without regular goalscoring contributions from Giannou, who despite his generally strong Socceroos form (when picked) has barely sighted the net in the top flight.

Despite starting and playing the full 90 regularly (missing a run of games during the Asian Cup), Giannou's only notched two goals and is yet to register an assist in 14 appearances this season.

While his form was decent in Europe, notching a string of assists throughout Europa League qualifying and then performing fairly strongly (again as a set in stone starter) throughout the group phase, it's been a far from prolific campaign from the 29-year-old. 

You'd think if one of their main strikers can find his shooting boots, AEK may cover that lost ground easier than expected.
