Match preview

In qualification terms, this really is a David vs Goliath of a match-up, so who will prevail in Nicosia?

Since 2009, APOEL have qualified for eight UEFA group stages, getting all the way to the Champions League quarter-finals in 2012.

However, the most recent of these was in 2019, falling in the play-off round 12 months later.

This season, Sofronis Avgousti’s side began in the previous round, overcoming Botev Plovdiv 2-0.

Issam Chebake and Georgios Efrem both scoring in last Thursday’s home leg.

In contrast, Kyzylzhar made their debut in UEFA competition in the second qualifying round and caused a massive upset.

The Kazakhstani club were big underdogs going into their tie with Osijek, a feeling that was only heightened when the Croatian side won 2-1 in Nur-Sultan.

However, against all odds, Giorgi Ivaniadze and Moussa Koné scored in a stunning 2-0 victory at Stadion Gradski vrt last Thursday as Kyzylzhar snuck through.

Should Andrei Karpovich’s team get through this tie, it would be an even bigger shock.

Will APOEL be too strong at GSP Stadium?
