APOEL is gradually rolling into the season. On September 24, the hosts will try to do everything to advance to the Europa League qualifying final. Will Zrinski Mostar be able to oppose them with something? – read our forecast
APOEL is always very powerful in their home arena. Even now, without fans, it is much easier for the team to play in their homeland. In the championship, the team from Cyprus is not doing well – seven points scored in four games played, as a result – seventh position.
APOEL in the previous qualifying round of the Europa League easily beat Kairat (4: 1).
The team from Bosnia and Herzegovina won silver medals last season, five points behind the leader. “Nobles” this season are not very successful in the domestic championship so far. After six games played, the team is in eighth position. We have stumbled twice already – with Velezh (0: 2) and Borats (0: 1).
Within the qualification of the Europa League , Zrinski Mostar left out of work Differdange (3: 0) and Olimpia Ljubljana (3: 2).
APOEL won four of their last seven home games
APOEL unbeaten at home in seven meetings
Zrinski Mostar have lost 1 of their last 3 away matches
We believe that the class of teams is not comparable, and the hosts, even with their inherent instability, should confidently move to the Europa League qualifying final. We expect a confident victory for APOEL, probably with a difference of two or more goals. The hosts must realize their speed advantage and reflect this on the scoreboard.
The guests’ attack looks extremely depressing in recent meetings. In the championship of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the team managed to score only four goals, so it is possible that APOEL will win a clean sheet.
Our prediction is the victory of APOEL taking into account the handicap (-1). Such an outcome can be played with odds of 1.60 in the bookmaker’s office 1 xBet.
