Match Predictions:

As a result of their victory in the Super Cup, Apollon Limassol will enter their match on Thursday with sky-high confidence as they attempt to win their third consecutive game across all competitions. We predict that the team from Cyprus will emerge victorious in front of their home supporters when they take on an opponent that is currently in a difficult position and whose opponent’s past five games have resulted in just one victory for their team.
