AEL Limassol vs Austria Vienna
2017/18 UEFA Europa League Qualification
Date: Wednesday, 1st August 2017
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Antonis Papadopoulos Stadium (Larnaca).
Things are looking bright for AEL Limassol after earning a goal-less draw in the first leg clash away from home. Their opponent Austria Vienna are in a poor run of form at the start of this new season after losing two domestic league games conceding 3 goals each in between the Europa League tie. They also struggle to see off a lower division club in the Cup game two week ago.
AEL Limassol are playing their home fixture in a different venue in Laranca. It might not be a problem for the Cypriots who are unbeaten in five European games this season. AEL comfortably overcome Saint Josephs from Gibraltar and Niedercorn from Luxembourg in the previous round.
Definitely, Austria Vienna are a far better side than the previous two opponents. But the ball is certainly in AEL’s court.

AEL Limassol vs Austria Vienna: Prediction
The home turfs are a fortress for most of the Cypriot clubs. AEL is in some fine form lately, while Austria Vienna are struggling on all counts. Their poor defending is the root cause for their downfall and a team like AEL will be smart enough to exploit. Moreover, the visitors have a poor away record in European away games.
A combination of these stats and facts are literally showing that AEL are the team to back here. One must not be surprised if the home team takes an early lead in the game.
