Slavia Prague (Cze) vs APOEL (Cyp) Prediction & Betting tips
Liverpool or Hoffenheim will have to go to the Europa League, Slavia Prague or APOEL Nicosia will reach the group stage of the royal class. An aspect that does not appeal to many, but it is the case when the los fairy decides on luck and bad luck. Nicosia has a brilliant starting position in the return leg in Prague. With 2: 0, the Cypriots got through at home and thus have all the trumps in their hands on Wednesday.
Slavia Prague (Cze) :
Slavia Prague played a grandiose last season in the Czech 1st league and finished with two points ahead of Viktoria Pilsen. Particularly impressive is the fact that Slavia Prague had lost only one of thirty league games. In addition, there were twenty wins and a total of nine draws. The start to the new season in the Czech Republic was not bad, but it seems to be a little bit off the hook. After four league games, Slavia Prague can score eight points. The two home games were won with 1: 0 and 2: 0, abroad there were in two games each a goalless draw.
In his previous seven competitive games this season, Slavia Prague scored more than a goal in a 2-0 home defeat against FC Vysocina Jihlava. Three times Slavia remained without their own goal, three times the Prague made a hit. All this speaks for a harmless attack, but this is largely compensated for by a good defense. For five of his seven goals, Slavia remained without a goal. In the play-off first leg in Nicosia, however, Prague was caught cold. After ten minutes, the opponents were 2-0. As a result, the Czechs improved and gained a chance, but they could not convert any of their opportunities into the important goal. In run-through two, the chances were 8: 1 in favor of Slavia Prague.
APOEL (Cyp) :
As much as Slavia Prague suffered in the first game among the early contenders, APOEL Nicosia enjoyed it. In the whole game, the Cypriot champions came to only five finishes, three of which found the way to the Czech goal. Two of them were there. APOEL Nicosia was not only efficient but also had Fortuna on his side. Igor de Camargo scored a goal with a 1: 0 goal and was not really able to make the ball sink. A good fifteen minutes before the end, APOEL Nicosia was lucky once again when the opponent hit the post. The Cypriots have been around since the second round and have already conquered the F91 Dudelange from Luxembourg and the Romanian champion FC Viitorul on their way to the playoffs.
APOEL Nicosia is quite experienced Champions League. The Cypriots have a total of four participations, while the opponent can qualify for the group phase of the royal class. The new season in the Cypriot First Division has not yet started for APOEL Nicosia. However, the Cypriot champion nationally contested a mandatory game, namely the Supercup. However, there was a defeat to the Cup-finalists Apollon Limassol as in the previous season. This should not be so serious, especially if the team manages to qualify for the Champions League.
