Everton vs Apollon Limassol Match Prediction

By Marius Hrebenciuc

Everton welcome Apollon Limassol at the Goodison Park on Thursday night, with both teams still searching for their first victory of their Europa League group E campaign. Everton suffered a 3-0 defeat on the road at Atalanta in their Europa League group opener, with Ronald Koeman’s men conceding all three goals in the first half. On the contrary, Apollon Limassol managed to snatch a 1-1 home draw against Lyon last time out, with Sardinero Adrian scoring the equaliser in the 93rd minute. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news, match stats and odds all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Everton are hot favourites to win here despite the fact they are missing several key players for this tie. They have been a strong side on home soil over the past five months, having lost just two of their last ten home fixtures across all competitions. On the flip side, Apollon have only lost one of their last six away competitive fixtures, but their most recent three trips ended in 1-1 draws.

Everton Preview

Everton’s form in this early part of the 2017/18 competitive season has been a complete mixed bag with seven wins, four defeats and two draws in their 13 competitive fixtures. The Toffees lost 3-0 on the road at Atalanta in their Europa League group opener a fortnight ago and followed this up with another 4-0 away loss at Manchester United in the Premier League. They bounced back with a 3-0 home win over Sunderland in the Carabao Cup a week ago and followed this up with a narrow 2-1 home win over Bournemouth in the Premier League at the weekend. Everton finished in seventh in the 2016/17 Premier League table last season to book their place in the Europa League qualifiers. They beat the likes of Ruzomberok in the third qualifying round and followed this up with a 2-1 aggregate victory over Hajduk Split in the play-offs to book their place in the group stage. This is Everton’s third appearance in the Europa League group stage and have made it through have reached the knockout stage in each of this campaigns. At home, Everton have won seven of their last eight Europa League games and are currently on a four-game winning streak. Omar Baye Niasse and Wayne Rooney have been Everton’s most prolific players in front of goal throughout their early part of the Premier League campaign, having scored two goals each.

Everton Team News

Wayne Rooney, Michael Keane and James McCarthy are all doubts, but Phil Jagielka, Ramiro Funes Mori, Ross Barkley and Yannick Bolasie are all out through injury. The good news is that Seamus Coleman is back in training.

Apollon Limassol Preview

Apollon Limassol finished third in the Cypriot First Division table last season and they also beat champions APOEL in the Cypriot Cup final. They have reached the Europa League group stage following back-to-back aggregate victories over Zaria Balti, Aberdeen and Midtjylland. They kicked off their Europa League group campaign with a creditable 1-1 home draw against Lyon a fortnight ago thanks to a late equaliser from Sardinero Adrian. They have competed in the Europa League group stages back in 2013/14 and 2014/15 seasons, but they have failed to reach the knockout stages in both occasions. Apollon are unbeaten in four Europa League games at the moment since a 2-1 defeat at Aberdeen two months ago. The Cypriots are currently on a six-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, winning two and drawing four in the process. Apollon have struggled in the final third over the past month and a half as they have scored more than two goals in just two of their last six competitive games. Furthermore, their recent away form in the Europa League has seen Apollon win just once in their last six games, scoring just five goals in this term.
