APOEL go into this game following a 0-0 First Division stalemate versus Ermis Aradippou.

Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the lone fitness concern for the APOEL gaffer to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength group of players. Vujadin Savic (Corona virus) won’t play.

Out of a mainly full-strength squad, there’s just the lone fitness problem for the Pafos manager Željko Kopić to be concerned about. Jerson Cabral (Knee Injury) misses out for this game.
