Apollon vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction & Tips
Apollon clings to a miracle after getting just one point so far in his Europa League (EL) campaign so far (E1, P2). In this game he faces a Frankfurt Eintracht that looks like a clear favorite on the paper.
After a 2-0 loss to Frankfurt in the previous meeting between the two in this group stage, Apollon has not won in their last 14 consecutive games of the group phase of the EL, since October 2014. Worse still, the hosts are still in pain after suffering a 2 -1 defeat in their last match at the local level. That was his first lost match (of his last 14) at home on a domestic level.
The history of Apollon against German opponents also gives no reason to be excited, as the Cypriot team lost by 7-0 (global) in their last match against a team of the Bundesliga, in the 2014/15 season.
After a 3,394-kilometer trip to Limassol, the Eagles (EIN) have lost in just one of their last nine away matches in European competitions (G4, E4, P1) and are looking for their fourth straight win in the EL with more than 1.5 goals per game. If successful, he could replicate his streak of four consecutive victories in the group stage of the EL in the 2013/14 season.
The current champions of the DFB Pokal (2017/18) have received only two goals against in the EL so far and in their history they record a great record in the EL (and UEFA Cup), with 40 victories in 73 matches (E14 , P19) and a goal difference of +42.
Players to watch: With only two goals in 24 EL games, Facundo Pereyra will go head to head with Luka Jovic. The 20-year-old Serbian has scored seven goals in eight matches at the local level and has scored two goals in three EL matches so far.
Statistics to consider: In all competitions, eight of the last ten Frankfurt games have produced more than 2.5 goals.
Two of the three consecutive victories of the Eintracht Frankfurt in the EL have had both teams scoring.
The Apollon has always scored at least one goal in official matches at home since December 2017 to date.
The previous match between the two had 11 corners (10: 1), nine shots on goal (8: 1) and a yellow card. In addition, all goals were scored in the first 45 minutes.
