Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Thursday’s football game at Tsirion Stadium pits together Apollon and Lech Poznan, the two teams who meet for the first time ever in European competitions. Apollon have defeated the likes of Saburtalo Tbilisi and OFI Crete on their way to the Europa League third qualifying round, and they do not want to stop now. The Cypriotes have yet to concede in the process, and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Thursday’s showdown.
Lech Poznan, on the other hand, rolled over Hammarby 3-0 in the second qualifying round to set up a meeting with Apollon. The Polish outfit aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but given Apollon’s current form, share of spoils is on the cards at Tsirion Stadium. Teenage midfielder Filip Marchwinski is pushing for a start for the visitors after finding the net in the triumph over Hammarby.
