Aris Thessaloniki vs AEL Limassol
Europa League Qualification
Date: Thursday, 25 July 2019
Kick-off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Kleanthis Vikelidis Stadium (Thessaloniki).
The hosts finished fourth in the table last season, but not before hammering their opponents Xanthi by a 7-2 scoreline in their final game at home.
The squad made seventeen attempts at goal in that matchup, fourteen of which were right on target. Twenty-nine of the forty-six goals that they scored last season came on home soil as well.
The visitors, on the other hand, brought their previous league campaign to an end with a disappointing 4-0 scoreline against APOEL on the road. However, post their dismal defeat, the team redeemed themselves in the Cyprus Cup by clinching a very convincing 2-0 win over the very same opponents.
Although the away side will be coming into the clash high on that victory, a similar result against the hosts will not be coming easy any means.

Aris Thessaloniki vs AEL Limassol Prediction
The home team are likely to be the ones to bag the win in the maiden tie between the two teams this week.
The visitors have been inconsistent in finding a winning run of form and succumbed to a defeat in their final game on the road in the league. They also conceded more than what they scored in their outings and will be in the back foot because of their erratic away record.
The hosts failed to pick up a win on just four occasions in their fixtures at home last season. More than half of their goals tally was scored on home soil too.
It is certainly safe to anticipate a high scoring clash on Thursday with the home side likely to come out on top at the end of the ninety minutes.
