APOEL vs Real Madrid – UEFA Champions League : APOEL Nicosia is the weakest link of this group and on the same group as Real Madrid…
Tottenham and Dortmund, it wasn’t even expected that the Cypriots would get any points. However, this APOEL already has 2 points, thanks to 2 well-earned draws with Dortmund.
With Real Madrid, they were beaten in Madrid and the same thing happened when they hosted Tottenham.
This team ends up being very defensive in the Champions League, playing in a low block with very tight lines as a way to avoid losses, because if they concede first, things get tricky,
since they don’t have the same weapons and arguments as their rivals on this competition.
They might still get to the Europa League since they have the same points as Dortmund.
Real Madrid are the current La Liga’s and Champions’ League champions but this season things haven’t been going well for Real Madrid and they are already far from Barcelona who leads La Liga,
and on this Champions League, they end up being in a more privileged position because Dortmund dropped 4 points to APOEL, something that wasn’t expected at all.
The Madrid team is coming off a tough and balanced duel with Atlético de Madrid that finished with a 0-0 draw.
The team isn’t showing the same football from previous years and things haven’t been easy for Zidane who is forced to overcome obstacles he hadn’t faced since he arrived at the team.
APOEL vs Real Madrid – Betting Tip and Prediction:
If Real Madrid wins, they ensure their spot in the Round of 16 of this Champions League, which is the team’s minimum objective.
Even despite not playing a very attractive and easy-on-the-eye football,
I believe that Real Madrid will be able to start this match well and take the advantage early, already during the first 45 minutes, then confirming that advantage in the 2nd half, winning and ensuring their qualification for the round of 16.
Ronaldo is the top scorer of the Champions League and he will clearly look to score, he who hasn’t scored much this season, or at least, not as much as in previous years.
