First leg score: Apollon Limassol 1-1 Olympiacos
After last Thursday’s first leg at GSP Stadium finished 1-1, it’s winner takes all in Piraeus.
Both goals in Nicosia came in the first half hour, with Rangelo Janga breaking the deadlock before Hwang In-beom equalised for Olympiacos.
So, who will prevail at Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium?
Olympiacos catastrophically crashed out of Champions League qualifying, hammered 4-0 at home by Maccabi Haifa last month.
Subsequently, the Greek champions needed a penalty shootout to overcome ŠK Slovan Bratislava in this competition, drawing 1-1 at home and then 2-2 in Slovakia.
So, the Red-Whites, who’ve qualified for a UEFA group stage in each of the last 24 seasons, are yet to win in five attempts this season.
That group phase streak will continue next month, but Carlos Corberán’s side are desperate to remain in the second-tier tournament.
Given all of that, Apollon Limassol will fancy their chances of an upset.
They featured in four Europa League group phases between 2013 and 2018, but have won just two of their last six qualifiers more recently.
Like their hosts, the Cypriot champions were beaten in Champions League qualifying by Maccabi Haifa, meaning they’ve now lost three ties on the spin for the first time in 33 years.
All in all, Olympiacos are favourites to win and book their place in the Europa League.
