APOEL Nicosia vs Sevilla Prediction

A hard fought 0-2 victory over Dudelange confirmed the play-off berth this season for APOEL Nicosia in their previous encounter in the group.

Apart from the opening two losses, the host has been unbeaten in the remaining three fixtures so far. They will be booting up for the final game of the group stage.

Besides, the Thrylos lost the opening home match to Dudelange in a 3-4 scoreline. Later, Nicosia went onto defeat Qarabag with 2-1 score on the board in the prior home match.

Since their form at home is not that satisfactory, we cannot count on them to win against Sevilla. Also, the host has lost to Sevilla in a h2h clash before on the road.

An easy win over Qarabag marked the fifth win in a row in Group A. They are unbeaten in all the group stage matches so far.

Also, Sevilla has kept four clean sheets in their five fixtures until now. Having conceded only two goals overall, the toppers have a strong defensive line in their matches.

Apart from that, the guest had won the previous two away games with at least a three goal lead in both clashes against Dudelange and Qarabag.

Another three points in the table will not make much difference but they will be keen to keep their winning run steady. Also, the visitor will look into the match as a training for the play-offs.

So, based on their standings and overall performance, Sevilla is likely to win the game in ninety minutes. Since, it is not a must win we can expect less number of goals in the clash.
