The hosts would progress to the knockouts if they manage to get hold of at least a point in this fixture. The result of the other fixture from this group would not change things for them.
The visitors however will need a win here and hope Flora does not come out of the match against group toppers Gent with a win and having a better goal difference than them, for them to progress through.

Partizan vs Anorthosis Prediction
The Great Lady of Cyprus registered their first win of the competition against Gent at home and surprised everyone. They are unlikely to repeat the feat considering they are playing away from home. Additionally, they face a side that has lost just once at home since February 2020.
Considering the Cypriot side has not scored in 3 of their 4 UEFA competition fixtures away from home, the hosts should be able to keep a clean sheet.
The Steamroller has scored exactly 2 goals in 3 of their home fixtures in this tournament including the qualifiers. So I have backed the hosts to win 2-0.
