After a disastrous pre-season campaign, Apollon failed to provide a real battle to Maccabi Haifa in the penultimate round of UEFA Champions League qualifying as they suffered a 2-4 aggregate defeat. However, However, Apollon built the much-needed motivation, as they secured a comfortable 2-0 triumph over Omonia in the Cyprus Super Cup, so the team will want to prove themselves in front of their fans. Meanwhile, Olympiakos had a generally poor pre-season campaign, and to make matters worse, the team suffered an embarrassment in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers, losing to Maccabi 1-5 on aggregate. After the elimination, the team appointed Carlos Corberán as the new coach, but even under him, Olympiakos did not shine, as they eliminated Slovan Bratislava only after the penalty shootout.

Apollon vs Olympiakos Betting Tips: BTTS

The last and only time when these two teams played a duel was in 2011, and then the match ended in a 1-1 draw, so the duel on Thursday will be their first competitive clash. Despite a 0-4 loss in the first leg against Maccabi Haifa, Apollon Limassol tried to turn the result in their favoir and surprise many, but a 2-0 triumph was not enough. Namely, Apollon's attack was sharpened, after consecutive 2-0 triumphs. Meanwhile, Olympiakos has faced huge problems in the back line, not only during the pre-season, but also in the competitive matches, where they conceded at least a goal in all four so far. In fact, Olympiakos' defense has looked leaky, as the Greek side have failed to keep a clean sheet in 13 of their previous 15 games in all competitions. So, Apollon should take advantage of Olympiakos' lack of defensive stability, while the Greek side has a powerful enough attack to find the net. All in all, we expect the audience to enjoy the clash between these teams.
