Laci vs Anorthosis Famagusta Match Preview

Anorthosis are strong favourites in this tie and they should be able to progress to the next round.

The Cyprian side finished their last season’s campaign on the 3rd spot and they secured the participation in the Europa League qualifiers.

In the very finish of the season, they weren’t too convincing as they celebrated only once in the last five rounds.

Anorthosis have been involved in a lot of draws last season and although they suffered only five defeats, Michal Duris and the lads didn’t manage to challenge the title.

They haven’t been too productive in compare to their main rivals, but their defence was one of the tightest in the competition.

After an impressive finish last season and Skenderbeu’s ban from Europe helped Laci to snatch a place in the Europa League qualifiers.

The Albanian club closed the previous season with four victories in a row which helped them climb to the 4th spot.

Besnik Prenga’s side improved their attacking work significantly and produced 20 goals in the closing six matches, which is almost the half of their total goals scored.

However, Laci been too good when playing at away grounds where they suffered eight defeats.
