We offer a forecast for the Europa League match, in which on August 27, Apollo will host Saburtalo from Tbilisi. Who will prevail in this duel? – the answer is in our material.
The three-time champion of Cyprus last season managed to get only the fourth position, which is a ticket to the Europa League. For 23 rounds, that is how much they managed to play on the island before the start of the global pandemic, the “legend ” won 12 victories and drew three times. The ” Runaways ” hit the opponent’s goal 39 times, with Nsue becoming the best sniper.
In the final game of the season, Apollo drew with the third APOEL (1: 1). In the first round of the 2020/21 tournament, the White-Blues drew with Doksa at home (1: 1).
The champion of Georgia-2018 in the last championship won the bronze medals of the Erovnuli League . This brought the capital club bronze medals and a ticket to the Europa League qualification. After 10 rounds of the current championship of the Georgian championship, “ Saburtalo ” has five wins and four matches, which the team ended in a draw.
It should be noted that the guests have the best attacking line in the country, which scored 19 goals against the opponents. In the last two matches, the Georgian club won over Samtredia (2: 1) and Sachkhere (8: 2).
Apollo won 5 of their last 7 matches
“Saburtalo” has not lost for seven games in a row
Tbilisi won three away matches in a row
Opponents will play the first face-to-face match in the history of confrontations
There are teams of approximately equal strength, for which reaching the next round is akin to winning the final of this tournament. Both clubs had a fairly long break, which made their chances of success in the confrontation about the same. Most likely, the fate of the fight can be decided by one episode and luck.
We suppose that the guests have a little more chances – the team has a more well-played team, besides, ” Saburtalo ” looks good in away duels. We do not see a way of success, so we propose to play a bet on the passage of the Georgian squad, but we will insure the bet.
Our prediction is the victory of “Saburtalo” with a handicap (+1.5) and we bet on this on the line of BC Vulkan with a coefficient of 2.05
