The Champions’ League Winners Real Madrid will host APOEL Nicosia at the Santiago Bernabéu in a Champions League match.
Coming from two draws in La Liga, Real Madrid wants to return to winning ways here. Their start of the season was being really good before these 2 slip-ups.
On the Spanish Supercup, Real has battered their rivals Barcelona with 2 great wins. In La Liga, they only played 3 matches.
The team won their debut against Deportivo La Coruña, but then they failed twice. That has left them in 7th place on the league table. As they usually say, you shouldn’t make any changes to winning teams.
Real has been moderate on the transfer market. The big departure was James, who went to Bayern on loan. Hernandez was their biggest signing. But so far, the big surprise of the season is being Asensio, who is starting to become a key player of this team.

Real Madrid vs APOEL – Betting Tip and Prediction:
After not being able to reach the Champions’ League group stage on the last seasons, APOEL is back.
The team was able to advance through the Champions’ League play-off, leaving some traditional opponents on the way.
The team has eliminated Dudelange, Vitorul and Slavia Prague being able to go through the qualifying stage.
Obviously, they didn’t have much luck in the draw. But which group would be accessible for APOEL? Not many. At least here they will face some big-name opponents such as Real Madrid, Dortmund and Tottenham. And they have a big chance of being the boxing bag in this group.
On a balanced group, Real knows they have to win a lot, and starting on this 1st match already. The goal scoring record can also have an important role in this group. APOEL can try as hard as they can, but they won’t have enough to withstand Real Madrid’s power.
