Anorthosis Famagusta Preview – Can Cypriots defy the odds?

After a 3-0 loss in the first leg of this Europa League qualifier, Anorthosis Famagusta are up against it.

That’s a big mountain to climb. Especially after barely laying a glove on their Austrian opponents.

Aside from a Cypriot Super Cup match, the first leg of this tie is the only competitive fixture that Anorthosis has played this season.

Heading into the match they are the 11/4 underdogs in the match outright for football betting* (odds recorded 18:17 GMT on August 11th 2021).

Can they defy those odds in Larnaca on Thursday night?

The head to head between the two clubs is very interesting.

All three previous matches have ended in a home win, the victors scoring exactly three goals in each of those results.

(odds recorded 18:17 GMT on August 11th 2021)


The one previous time that Anorthosis hosted Rapid Vienna was in the 2008/09 Champions League qualifiers.

On those occasions, Anorthosis won 4-3 on aggregate over the two legs.

Last season the Cypriot side were in the Europa League qualifiers and narrowly lost 3-2 against FC Basel in a really spirited effort in the Third Round away from home.

They are at a disadvantage here in terms of match fitness, but it may just be worth backing them to at least get a consolation goal on the board in the tie.

Both teams to score in football betting is at a quote of 4/6* (odds recorded 18:17 GMT on August 11th 2021).

It’s reasonable to suspect that Rapid Vienna is going to turn up, without showing too much intent.


Rapid Vienna Preview – Austrians to seal the deal

Rapid Vienna have played seven games already in their new season, so should be that much fitter and sharper.

It has been a W4 D1 L2 record from them in that sequence.

It has been only the two away games that they have played and they failed to win either of those.

They started their European campaign in the Champions League qualifiers.

After a good opening first-leg win against Sparta Prague on home turf, Rapid Vienna could not complete the job.

A 2-0 loss in Prague sent them down to the Europa League qualifiers.

With that 3-0 first-leg lead, they will likely get through this.

In the match outright Rapid Vienna are a quote of 17/20 to take the win* (odds recorded 18:17 GMT on August 11th 2021).
