The first round opposition is ideal for AEK given that Zurich started the new Super League campaign in a rather slow manner. The visitors won, drew and lost two of six domestic league games apiece so far in the season. They came fourth in the previous term of Super League, but manager to secure the Europa League group stage appearance by winning the cup trophy.

AEK Larnaca vs Zurich: Head-to-head

This will be the first ever head to head match between the two sides.

AEK Larnaca vs Zurich: Prediction

We have to see Kitrinoprasinoi as heavy favourites to grab the spoils here looking at their super impressive home record in the past couple of years. They bagged 12 goals without conceding a single in three Europa League games this term and they lost just one of last 34 competitive affairs in all competitions in front of the home crowd.

The hosts have a real Iberian flavour in their ranks. It was implemented by the manager Andoni Iraola who looks to be doing a phenomenal job at the start of the new season. His men actually conceded just one goal in six Europa League outings so far.

Knowing that Zurich won just 2 of last 10 away games in all competitions (we won’t count two cup wins over lower-division sides), it’s really difficult to go past the home win set at the 1.83 odds here.

The value is also strong in backing the hosts to keep a clean sheet at the 2.50 odds given their impressive home record under Iraola.
