Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
A spot in the Conference League group stages will be at stake when APOEL and Djurgarden take on each other at Neo GSP Stadium on Thursday. APOEL face an uphill task in the reverse fixture as they need to overcome a three-goal deficit, but the hope dies last. Defender Jose Crespo is banned for the match, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
Djurgarden, on the other hand, are on the right track to book their spot in the group stages, but they can’t afford any complacency in the decider. The Swedes are not regarded as good travellers, and seeing that they would be happy with the share of spoils this time out, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. As for the visiting side, defender Elliot Kack misses out with injury, while both Radetinac and Sabovic are pushing for a start after the duo got their names on the scoresheet in a 2-2 draw with Varberg.
