Apollon Prediction – Can Apollon stage comeback?

After suffering a heavy 3-0 away defeat in last week’s 1st leg of this Europa League play-off tie against PSV, Apollon face a mountain to climb if they’re to emerge from this clash as victors and make their way through to the group stage of the competition.

Apollon entered this season’s Europa League at the 1st qualifying round stage where they recorded a resounding 6-0 aggregate win against Lithuanian side, Kauno Zalgiris, after which the hosts then followed that up with a narrow 4-3 win against Irish side, Shamrock Rovers, over their two-legged tie.

A 3rd qualifying round 5-2 aggregate win against Austrian club, Austria Vienna, saw the Cypriot outfit through to these play-offs but they’re now seemingly staring elimination squarely in the face as they trail by a 3-goal margin ahead of this 2nd leg decider.

Home form in the Europa League though has been pretty good for Apollon who have lost just 1 of their last 10 home ties in the competition, a sequence that includes 8 wins.

PSV Prediction – Can PSV avoid defeat in Cyprus?

Last week’s triumphant 3-0 win in the 1st leg of this Europa League play-off tie against Apollon extended PSV’s unbeaten run in all competitions to 6 matches, but more importantly moved the Dutch giants a big step closer to the group stages of the Europa League.

PSV are now within just 90 minutes of securing their place in the group phase of the competition and having lost just 4 of their previous 12 ties away from home at this level, the Dutch visitors will be in confident mood that they can avoid defeat at the Tsirion Athlítiko Kentro on Thursday night.

Although recent results away from home in the Europa League have produced mixed results for PSV as the Dutch side have lost at Zenit and Osijek, they’ve also registered wins at Panathinaikos and Haugesund as well as gain a 3-3 draw away at Portuguese side, Estoril.

Interestingly, PSV have scored 2 goals or more in 6 of these last 12 away ties too, so the visitors are capable of scoring on the road here and this make Apollon’s task even more difficult.


Key-Facts – Apollon v PSV

  • Apollon have lost just 1 of their last 10 home ties in the Europa League
  • PSV have lost just 4 of their last 12 away ties in the Europa League
  • PSV have scored 2 goals or more in 6 of these last 12 away ties


Betting Tips Verdict

Apollon face a daunting task of attempting to overcome a 3-goal deficit here, and just 1 goal from PSV would make the host’s task almost impossible.
