Anderlecht vs APOEL Nicosia Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Anderlecht and APOEL Nicosia will square off at the Stade Constant Vanden Stock on Thursday night for the second leg of their Europa League round of 16 tie. Anderlecht managed somehow to secure a 0-1 victory in Cyprus last Thursday thanks to a first-half goal from Nicusor Stanciu. The 23-year-old midfielder was voted the Europa League player of the week.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Anderlecht did the hard part of the task last Thursday, and now they will be looking to seal their place into the quarter-finals. Anderlecht are currently on an eight-game unbeaten streak at home, scoring at least two goals in six of these. I’m backing Anderlecht to win, but I’m also expecting APOEL to get on the scoresheet as they have scored at least once in 13 of their last 15 games across all competitions.

Both teams to score - Yes at 10/11

Anderlecht to win and Over 2.5 goals at 5/4

Anderlecht Preview

Anderlecht followed up their narrow win in Cyprus with a comfortable 3-0 home victory over Waasland-Beveren in the Jupiler League at the weekend. They looked pretty solid at the back over the past three weeks, keeping a clean sheet in three of their last four games across all competitions. Overall, the Belgians have only lost two of their last 16 competitive fixtures. Anderlecht finished their regular season on top of the Jupiler League table, just two points more than the second-placed Club Brugge. Actually, their 3-0 victory over Waasland-Beveren was their final fixture of the regular season, and they will start the Champions Group play-offs next week. On home soil, Anderlecht have only lost one of their last 14 home fixtures across all competitions and are currently on an eight-game unbeaten streak. In addition, Anderlecht have kept a clean sheet in each of their last three home games across all competitions. Furthermore, the Belgian outfit have won four of their last five European home games, scoring 16 goals in the process. Lukasz Teodorczyk has been Anderlecht’s most dangerous player in front of goal in the Jupiler League this season, as he is leading the league’s goalscoring charts with 20 goals. Furthermore, the 25-year-old striker has helped the team with seven goals in his 10 Europa League appearances so far this season.

APOEL Nicosia Preview

APOEL Nicosia have been alternating victories with defeats over the past three weeks, winning two and losing two of their last four games across all competitions. After their 0-1 home defeat at the hands of Anderlecht last Thursday, APOEL bounced back with another narrow 0-1 win at Anorthosis in the Cypriot First Division at the weekend. Despite this mini blip, APOEL have enjoyed a strong run of form recently. Their narrow defeat at the hands of Anderlecht ended a 33-match unbeaten streak across all competitions in front of their own fans. Away from home, APOEL managed to win eight of their last 15 games across all competitions, but all of these victories were in their domestic competitions. The Cypriots are on a three-game European losing run on the road, but the good news is that they have scored at least once in all four of their Europa League away fixtures this season. Domestically, APOEL finished on top of the league table at the end of their regular season, and they already kicked off the play-offs with a 0-1 victory over Anorthosis. Pieros Sotiriou is a player to watch for APOEL, as the 24-year-old striker has scored 23 goals across all competitions so far this season.
