APOEL Nicosia vs Sutjeska Niksic Match Preview
APOEL Nicosia turned an exciting contest their way as Tomas De Vincenti converted the penalty kick late in the first half, keeping hold of the lead in the second through some heroics from Vid Belec and a missed penalty from Stefan Nikolic – which could have had the visitors travel to Nicosia with more to hope for.
Thrylos have struggled to pick it up through the pre-season and only ended a losing streak with a 1-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk two weeks ahead of the first leg, which will have Paolo Tramezzani hoping his men have rediscovered consistency at the most important of times after all.
Indeed, Sutjeska had their say in front of the home crowd but failed to make the best out of their chances, which now looks to be costly. They’ve struggled for consistency in the final third and this was just as obvious last week, which has few believing the Montenegro rivals have what it takes for an upset now.
The Blues have beaten Slovan Bratislava in 1st Qualifying Round on penalties after a 2-2 draw and a goal to Nil here would lead to the shootout once again. However, getting a positive result in Cyprus should prove much more of a task, with APOEL a known tough nut to crack here.
We will now back APOEL to show off just that and we’ll now back them to a more confident display at home ground, as we go for the home side to punch their ticket to the 3rd Qualifying Round with a win to Nil – which comes at 4/7 with bet365.
We still hope not to see a thrashing and with that in mind, we’re also going for Under 2.5 Goals FT at an eye-catching 8/5 with Unibet. We hope not to see man goals and this does feel like great value for those hoping Thrylos will be able to keep a clean sheet on the day.
