APOEL Nicosia Preview

APOEL fell to defeat in the Cypriot curtain raiser last time out, losing 2-1 against Apollon in the Super Cup. It seemed for the world as if APOEL would walk out comfortable winners as Giorgos Efrem struck to give them the lead and when Apollon’s Giorgos Vasiliou was sent off with nineteen minutes to play, the result seemed an even stronger certainty. However Alex da Silva and Andre Schembri struck in the final fifteen minutes to stun the Cypriot champions before the opening of the league campaign. APOEL have already come through two two-legged ties to reach this stage of the competition, beating F91 Dudelange of Luxembourg and FC Viitorul of Romania in what were their only other competitive fixtures of the season so far. Unlike their opponents, APOEL’s domestic league campaign is yet to get under way and they will hope that they won’t suffer from a lack of sharpness in comparison to the shape of their opponents.

APOEL Nicosia Team News

Defender Giorgos Merkis (muscle), midfielders Efstathios Aloneftis (muscle), Oliveira Franco Vinicius (achilles) and Lorenzo Ebecilio (muscle) will all face fitness tests prior to this match.

Slavia Prague Preview

Slavia Prague added to their impressive start to the season last time out after a solid first-half performance saw them come out 2-0 winners against Vysocina Jihlava in their meeting on Friday evening. Josef Husbauer opened the scoring from the penalty spot before Portuguese midfielder Danny added a second before 20 minutes had passed. With two wins and a draw from their opening three league games, Slavia have set off with the same intent as last season after winning the Czech First League in 2016/17. Despite losing 2-1 away to BATE Borisov in the second leg of their previous Champions League tie, the 1-0 victory enjoyed at home in the first leg saw them progress on away goals to knock the Belarusians out of the competition. The club haven’t been in the Champions League group stages since 2007/08, having failed to progress from the qualifying rounds during their attempts in 2008 and 2009.

Slavia Prague Team News

Slavia Prague have no fresh injury concerns heading into this midweek fixture.
