Apollon Limassol vs Shamrock Rovers Match Preview

Shamrock Rovers have beaten Apollon Limassol (2-1) in an exciting first-leg occasion after the rivals took an early lead with a peach from Fotios Papoulis but they bounced back with headed goals from Grace just minutes later and Lopes just before the hour mark.

Rovers will now hope to build on such a performance where they were denied a more comfortable lead by the bar and we feel Stephen Bradley’s men will be very motivated. They have struggled to turn clashes their way on the road, though, and the 1-1 draw at Cork over the weekend was their second in a row – which could be more worrying.

Apollon Limassol have beaten Kauno Zalgiris (6-0 on aggregate) quite comfortably on both occasions but they have struggled for consistency through the pre-season and this could now be proving costly, as set pieces proved a pain for them at Tallaght Stadium last week.

Theos have had even more trouble retaining consistency in front of the home fans and the win over Kauno Zalgiris only ended a seven-match winless and playing at Neo GSP could be refreshing. Sofronis Avgousti still has questions to answer setting up the defensive line who conceded at least a goal in ten of their last 11 home outings.

We will still back Apollon to turn this one their way but we feel they could be headed into extra time as we now stick our necks out for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score, which combines to an eye-catching 11/4 with bet365.

We have seen both sides scoring and conceding on the regular and this does add to such a belief. With that in mind, we’re also backing a high-scoring contest and Over 2.5 Goals FT, which has caught the eye of many at 27/25 with Unibet.
