APOEL Prediction – Can APOEL return the favour?

APOEL will make their way into Wednesday night’s local clash against local rivals Olympiakos Nicosia not only seeking back-to-back home wins in the Cypriot top flight but also to repay their recent 2-0 defeat away from home at the hands of tonight’s visitors who inflicted defeat upon them in early December.

4th placed APOEL registered a convincing 4-0 rout of Enosis last time out on home turf at their Neo GSP ground and another three points in this upcoming encounter would see the hosts leapfrog Apollon into 3rd spot on the 1st Division ladder.

Although results overall in recent times have produced a mixed return, APOEL possess a solid home record which stands at 5-1-0 14/0 which includes wins against AEL, Doxa, Pafos, Ethnikos Achna and Enosis – all of which have been to nil.

APOEL are unbeaten in their last 12 matches at home and within this period, the hosts have racked up a total of 10 clean sheets which is an impressive record. In addition, APOEL have won 7 of the last 8 meetings against Olympiakos Nicosia.

Olympiakos Nicosia Prediction – Can Olympiakos get on the scoresheet?

The 8th placed visitors come into this clash against APOEL having failed to score in their previous two league matches as they’ve slumped to a 3-0 defeat at home to Nea Salamis which was followed by a 0-0 stalemate away from home at AEK Larnaca.

Overall, Olympiakos have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 7 matches in the Cypriot top flight which was the aforementioned loss to Nea Salamis, but the bigger picture shows that Olympiakos have managed only 3 wins out of their last 20 matches in the 1st Division.

2 of these 3 wins were recorded on home turf at their Makareio Stadio which leaves a rather average, if not poor away record of 1-3-3 10/13 so far this season, while the bigger picture shows that Olympiakos have won just 1 of their last 12 matches on their travels.

In addition, 9 of Olympiakos’s last 12 away matches have seen the visitors concede 2+ goals as well, so they look to have their work cut out against APOEL here.

 

Key-Facts – APOEL vs Olympiakos Nicosia

  • APOEL are unbeaten in their last 12 matches at home in the 1st Division
  • Olympiakos have won just 1 of their last 12 matches on their travels
  • APOEL have won 7 of the last 8 meetings against Olympiakos Nicosia

 

Betting Tips Verdict

APOEL have held the upper hand over Olympiakos for the majority of their previous meetings and should record another easy win here.
