The 1st legs of the 3rd qualifying round of the Champions League commence on Tuesday night and our next featured match is a clash between Cypriot side, APOEL, taking on Azerbaijan outfit, Qarabag, as the betting tips continue at the Neo GSP ground in Nicosia.

APOEL Prediction – Can APOEL win four on the trot?

The Cypriot side have first bite of the cherry in this important two-legged clash against Qarabag in the 3rd qualifying round of the Champions League.

Having recorded a 1-0 home win against Ukraine club, Shakhtar Donetsk, APOEL registered back-to-back wins in the previous round of this competition.

Their pre-season didn’t exactly see APOEL cover themselves in glory though as they’ve previously suffered 3 defeats on the trot.

Warm-up matches against Rudar, Zilina and Rijeka all ended in defeats for the hosts, but they quickly bounced back when it mattered.

In the previous round of these Champions League qualifiers, APOEL registered a 1-0 win away at Montenegro outfit, Sutjeska, in the 1st leg.

The Cypriots then ensured their passage into this 3rd qualifying round with a 3-0 home win in the 2nd leg which will give them a timely boost ahead of this round.

With 6 wins out of their last 8 home matches in all competitions, APOEL look to be in reasonable shape ahead of Tuesday night’s 1st leg.

Switch to previous results at home in the Champions league and APOEL have lost just 2 of their last 12 ties on home turf at this level.

Qarabag Prediction – Can Qarabag extend unbeaten run?

The visitors will make their way over to Cyprus for this 1st leg of this 3rd qualifying round of the Champions League in reasonably confident mood.

The Azerbaijan outfit are unbeaten in their last 7 matches in all competitions which includes wins in the first two rounds of these Champions League qualifiers.

Firstly, 3 matches unbeaten in their warm-up matches were followed by a 2-0 aggregate win over Albanian outfit, Partizani Tirana.

They then booked their place in this 3rd qualifying round courtesy of a convincing 4-1 aggregate win over Irish club, Dundalk.

These last 7 matches have resulted in Qarabag keeping 4 clean sheets so they’ll be backing their defensive unit to keep things tight in Nicosia on Tuesday night.

Overall results away from home have also been promising of late for Qarabag too as the visitors have lost just 2 of their last 12 matches in all competitions.

However, switch to results on the road in the Champions League and it’s a very different story – just 1 win from their last 9 away ties.

That win came in the shape of a 1-0 win at Slovenian side, Olimpija back in July of last year. The visitors have drawn their last 4 away ties on the trot too.

 

Key-Facts – APOEL v Qarabag

  • APOEL have lost just 2 of their last 12 ties on home turf in the Champions League
  • Qarabag have won just 1 of their last 9 away ties in the Champions League
  • These two teams have never played each other before in any competition

 

Betting Tips Verdict

APOEL with home advantage will be hard to budge in this 1st leg and should take a lead over to Azerbaijan for the 2nd leg.
