Apollon vs Atalanta – Europa League : In a match of the 4th round of this Europa League group stage…
Apollon hosts the Italian team Atalanta, who is leading this group, while the Cypriot team sits in 3rd place, 3 points behind 2nd place Lyon.
The team from Cyprus is coming off a loss on the first match between these two sides, where they lost 3-1 in Italy, but they are still alive in this group, as long as they win tonight’s match.
As for their national competition, the team is in 5th place, but is still unbeaten, although they do have a lot of draws as well.
Atalanta’s team lead this group and they seem to be focusing this competition more, since they have been resting some players on some of their Serie A’s matches and that has been working out well for them,
because they are doing very well on this European competition. However, they are coming off a loss in the Serie A, where they sit in a modest 10th place, which is far from what was expected.
Just like the first encounter, I also expect an exciting game here. Apollon is really strong at home,
being unbeaten on their last 6 matches, with 5 wins and only 1 draw, which shows that the team has a winning posture when they play at home.
On the other side we have a team that plays with an attacking style both at home and away from home.
They are an engaged team with the Argentinian “Papu” Goméz being their best player, since he has a lot of quality on the set pieces, besides his assisting prowess.
Apollon vs Atalanta – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The home side needs to win at any cost, since they are 3 points behind the 2nd placed team and Atalanta needs the result to practically ensure their qualification, which would allow them to focus a bit more on the Serie A.
Therefore, I expect a match with goals, just like it happened on the first match between these two sides, which finished 3-1 in favour of the Italians.
