Sutjeska vs APOEL Nicosia
Champions League Qualification
Date: Tuesday, 23 July 2019
Kick-off at 19:15 UK / 20:15 CET
Venue: Stadion Gradski (Nikšić).
The hosts survived a scare in their round of sixteen clash with Slovan Bratislava after the scores were tied on aggregate even after extra time. The squad won the battle of nerves in the penalty shootout and have no one but their lucky stars to thank for taking them across the borderline.
Their visitors had an impressive campaign in their domestic league and were crowned as the champions with a convincing eight-point lead at the helm. However, they suffered heartbreak in the finals of the Cyprus Cup where they lost 2-0 against AEL Limassol, the same side that they beat 4-0 in their final game in the league.
The home team are certainly the underdogs in this one and will have to put in the extra effort to ensure that they do not lose, especially by a sizeable margin.

Sutjeska vs APOEL Nicosia Prediction
The clash on Tuesday is likely to see the visitors bag the win and a crucial away goal at the least, in the first-ever meeting between the two sides.
The squad have not taken part in a competitive game post their disappointing loss in the Cyprus Cup. However, they were the best side in the league last season and have the best away record to go with it as well. So expect them to be at their best when they make the trip to the Stadion Gradski.
The hosts managed just two shots on target in their previous game on home soil. Hence, the team are unlikely to find the back of the net this week, while a low score clash with a win for the away side is definitely in the reckoning.
