Djurgårdens IF vs APOEL
Both teams to score- 17/20!
Djurgårdens IF are on the verge of qualifying for a UEFA group stage for the first time ever, so will they negotiate the final hurdle?
So far this season, the Swedish club have seen off Rijeka and then Sepsi OSK Sfântu Gheorghe, winning both legs in the previous round 3-1.
Joel Asoro bagging a brace both in Romania and then back in Stockholm.
So, this already represents Djurgården’s best run in UEFA competition since going out in the second round of the Cup Winners’ Cup 32 years ago.
Will they now make it all the way to a maiden group phase?
Unfortunately for the home side, they come into this two-legged affair as underdogs.
In stark contrast to their hosts, APOEL featured in eight group stages between 2009 and 2019, getting all the way to the Champions League quarter-finals in 2012.
This year, the Cypriot side have overcome Botev Plovdiv and Kyzylzhar as they target their first group phase qualification for three years.
One feels, with the second leg in Nicosia to come, this is must win for Djurgården at Tele2 Arena.
