Cypriots are at a high financial level beside many teams in Europe. A lot of money is being invested in developing and maintaining this club at its highest level, and European results are expected. They will start with quite a considerable handicap this game, after in the first match they lost with the score of 3-1 in Lithuania.
They start out this duel as a favourite, and the result from the first game was a shock for many. I can not say that I expected them to lose, but I stayed away from this game because I know they are a slow team in the away games.
APOEL is a team that knows how to use the advantage of their own ground very well. I expect to see another Cypriot football and still give them the first chance to qualify.
Today's guests come from a modest championship where there are not many players with qualities and where the money comes very hard. They made a very good match from a strategic point of view and because of the fact that they are in full season.
In the championship, things are going very well, being on the first position with 8 points in front of the 2nd place. I think it was a shock also for them the result of the first game, and they will wait for a very hard match in Cyprus. They know very well that they need to score a goal to stay calm and they will focus on scoring.
My bet: Home Team to win both halves: @2.07 (Unibet)
Good luck to everyone!
