Dudelange vs APOEL Nicosia Prediction

Dudelange were forced to settle for no more than a point last week after their foes UNA Strassen found a late equalizer to post a 2-2 draw. The hosts have been struggling to ensure a winning run of form and have just three wins to boast of from their last eight games in all competitions.

It is also worth noting that the home side have slumped to the bottom of Group A with no more than three points to their name.

On the other hand, APOEL Nicosia are unbeaten in their last seven fixtures. Their most recent matchup at home saw the visitors slot three unanswered goals past Paphos, while on the road they shared the spoils with Apollon in a 2-2 draw.

Furthermore, the away side are currently unbeaten in their previous two group clashes. The last of which saw them take down Qarabag with a 2-1 victory. To pile on even more misery for the Dudelange faithful, the visiting contingent have not been at the losing end in any of their previous three outings on the trot.

Taking into account that their last trip to Luxembourg soil also saw APOEL Nicosia secure the bragging rights, the visitors are the favorites to come out on top in this one.

Additionally, the guests have found the back of the net six times from their last three outings alone, one of which was across Europe. Meanwhile, Dudelange have been racking up the goals tally in their respective matchups at home, and have scored eleven goals from their previous four.

Considering that their previous h2h meeting also witnessed both teams get their names on the scoresheet, expect no dearth of goals come Thursday.
