On October 1, Slovan Liberec and APOEL will meet in the Europa League qualifying final, and we have prepared a forecast for this match. Which side will football luck be on?
The Czech club made a lot of efforts to get even into the qualification of the Europa League, where it began to demonstrate good play and deservedly reached the final.
Slovan Liberec defeated Riteriai at the start (5: 1), although it was immediately clear that the forces were far from equal, so this result is just a confirmation of how the level of domestic leagues is different in class.
In the next round, Pavel Hoftic’s charges hit Romanian Steaua, and this was no easy task, but the opponent helped a little, because already in the 20th minute he earned a red card, so he made life easier for the blue-and-white team (2: 0 ). Now it remains to do the most difficult thing – to go through APOEL.
The representative of Cyprus did not manage to compete for the first line in the domestic championship last season, but finished third and advanced to the Europa League. Unlike Slovan Liberec, the team played one more match in European competition.
APOEL not without problems, but still beat Klubi Footbalistic Gzhilani in the 1/8 finals, thanks to two goals in extra time (2: 0), then followed by a victory over Kaisar (4: 1), and in the last meeting the club snatched victoria from Zrinski Mostar in a penalty shootout.
The guys of Marinos Ozunidis will play away, and this is clearly a plus for the opponent, so they will have to show their maximum, although it’s worth it, because the group stage is ahead.
Tennis players will hold the first official meeting in their history.
In the last five matches, Slovan Liberec lost only once.
The winning streak of the APOEL club lasts four matches.
Without a doubt, a real battle awaits us on the field, because a ticket to the group stage of the Europa League is at stake. Both opponents played great preliminary fights, although APOEL faced problems more often even against weak teams in class.
“Slovan” Liberec will play within their native walls, and this, after all, helps, especially in key matches. In our opinion, the Czech team showed themselves better in qualifying and deserved to go further.
Our forecast – “Slovan” Liberec will go further for a coefficient of 1.76 in BC Winline
