Olympiakos Nicosia will be looking to improve on their last outing here after the 2-0 First Division losing effort in their last game against Anorthosis Famagusta.
It has been seldom in recent games that Olympiakos Nicosia haven’t conceded. In fact, The Green Blacks have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 8 goals in the process.
Apollon Limassol will come into the match following on from a 2-1 First Division win versus Ethnikos Achna in their last fixture.
Demonstrating their fondness for high-scoring encounters, goals have been celebrated 20 times in the last 6 games in which Apollon Limassol have sent out their troops, giving a mean average of 3.33 goals per meeting. Opposing teams have hit 7 of this grand total. Such a trend isn’t assured to follow through into this match, however.
Ahead of this meeting, Apollon Limassol have not been beaten in their last 3 league matches away from home.

Olympiakos Nicosia boss Vesko Mihajlović does not have any fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this game thanks to a completely healthy squad to pick from.
Team News: Apollon Limassol
Owing to an otherwise full-strength group of players, there is just the one fitness issue for the Apollon Limassol manager Sofronis Avgousti to be concerned about. Joël Mall (Fracture of the orbit) won’t be playing here.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Olympiakos Nicosia would be disappointed if they were not to breach the defence of this Apollon Limassol outfit, however a single goal is unlikely to be enough to prevent defeat.
Our selection here is for both teams to score in a 1-2 winning score for Apollon Limassol after the 90. Should be a good one.
