APOEL Nicosia vs Dudelange
Europa League
Date: Thursday, 19 September 2019
Kick-off at 17:55 UK / 18:55 CET
Venue: Neo GSP Stadium (Nicosia).

APOEL Nicosia will be delighted to host their opening match in the league. They will be welcoming Dudelange in their first home match with Sevilla and Qarabag already in the mix at Group A. It should be an easy win for the home team having the home ground advantage in the game.

The reigning Cyta Champions have lost only two games from their last seven home matches. The visiting side is on a winless three-game run from their away fixtures. Nicosia has won their previous match while Dudelange was defeated in their prior game on their schedule.

APOEL Nicosia vs Dudelange Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Nicosia bagged both wins from the two meetings in 2017 Champions League qualifiers.

  • The host has led the score in at least one of the forty-five minutes.

APOEL Nicosia vs Dudelange Prediction

The host found their winning goal late into the game in the previous clash with Dudelange in the 2017 Champions League. Even at home, Nicosia was unable to give much trouble to the opposition with just two shots on goal. Both the older encounters resulted in the same 1-0 score in the end. Besides that, the visitor has not slotted in any goals against Nicosia yet.

So, the chances for goals are scarce from both ends owing to a low score in the bout most probably.

From the two h2h matches, the host scored their winning goal in the second half of the game at home. They have scored 7 goals from the recent five home matches in general. Moreover, Dudelange has conceded at least one goal in the last three away games after the game restarts.

Therefore, if we were to see any action in the game it would occur in the second half of the ninety minutes, most likely on behalf of the hosting side.
