Shamrock Rovers vs Apollon Limassol Match Preview
A second round Europa League tie and a big chance for one of these two teams to go up against some of the heavyweights of European football in the next round.
Both of these teams entered the competition at the first round, and their games were very contrasting. Shamrock Rovers had the tougher game of the two, facing Brann but they came out on top, winning 4-3 on aggregate. Apollon Limassol had it much easier, they had the easy task of beating Spyris Kaunas and made no mistake, with a comfortable 6-0 aggregate victory, easing down to record that.
When comparing the quality of teams at this stage, often the best question to ask is which of these two can make the group stage? It would be a big shock to see Shamrock Rovers make the group stage, while Apollon Limassol were in them last year, playing against some big teams and holding their own. That shows they have the upper hand in terms of class, they just need to show that on Thursday night.
We think that is exactly what they will do, and they will win this leg to take real control of this tie. Going home with anything should be enough for Apollon Limassol to get into the next round and we think they can go home with a small advantage.
