Apollon Prediction

Apollon currently sit in third spot in the Cypriot 1.Division but could jump into second place at the expense of AEL if they take all three points as the hosts possess a far superior goal difference of +14 ahead of this Sunday’s clash.

The hosts have enjoyed a fairly successful campaign so far as they sit in third place and have put together a solid run of five matches without defeat, or if you prefer, suffered just one defeat from their last eight matches overall.

That loss came in a heavy 5-1 thrashing at the hands of APOEL who are four points clear at the top of the division, but Apollon return to home turf for this afternoon’s encounter where they hold a strong record of 5-1-1 23/6 under their belts so far this season.

Apollon also possess some dangerous quality in the final third with midfielder Pereyra (10 goals), along with forwards Maglica (6 goals), Papoulis (4 goals) and Zelaya (3 goals) being the most likely to notch for the hosts.

Key-Facts – Apollon v Omonia Nicosia

    • Apollon have lost just once in their last 8 league matches
    • Apollon’s Pereyra (10 goals) is the second highest goalscoer in the division
    • Omonia Nicosia have managed just one clean sheet away from home this season

Omonia Nicosia Prediction

Omonia Nicosia occupy the fringes of the top six and the Championship Round positions as they sit two points adrift of 6th placed AEK Larnaca as they prepare for this difficult trip to Apollon. The visitors have posted mixed results in recent times as they’ve registered wins against Alki Oroklini and AEK Larnaca, but have also fallen foul of AEL and APOEL as well.

Omonia’s inconsistent trend continues away from home where they hold a fairly ordinary record of 2-1-4 6/8 which includes failing to score in 3 of their 7 away matches to date. In addition, Omonia Nicosia have managed just one clean sheet away from home this season.

Omonia’s problems away from home are not just limited to this season as the visitors have recorded just 2 away wins in their last 13 matches on their travels.

Betting Tips Verdict

Apollon’s home advantage and quality in attack should see off Omonia Nicosia here.
