FC Midtjylland – Apollon Limassol: Preview & Prediction
The Danes have shown good fighting games so far in the season with 34 goals in 13 matches – only Brøndby and Helsingør have held them under 2 scorings.
Alexander Sørloth is in big shape with 4 goals in the last two matches, and the Norwegians have just been taken to the national team.
The league has still not started in Cyprus, and FCM may therefore have the advantage of having far more significant minutes in the legs.
Compared to the first match, the temperature should fit FCM better, and they are less likely to die at the end of the match, as viewed in Cyprus.
The FCM were in exactly the same situation in the last round after a 3-2 defeat at away team, and they traveled with a 2-1 win at home.
FCM has won all home matches this season, which is 6 victories with a goal score of 19-7 – last time, FCN won the top team.
Apollon has picked up some new players for the season, and they have not got many matches together yet.
The defensive has not looked good at FCM, which has closed 22 goals in 13 matches – and only Silkeborg and OB have been silent.
The FCM have now closed goals in the dying minutes against both Arka and Apollon, and they looked tired at the end of both matches.
Paul Onuachu is still out with an inflamed appendix, and while Sørloth is well-run, it is a weakening.
The pressure is on the Danes, which is about to score, and it can provide good opportunities for conversion to the Cypriots.
Apollon has a nice European campaign with 2 wins over Zaria Balti, a total 3-2 win over Aberdeen and now 3-2 over FCM.
Apollon can come in what looks like the strongest possible setup and they must have the greatest confidence in the win in the first match.
