Slovan Liberec finished 5th in the regular season in the Czech Republic last year, and was unable to grab a place during the play-offs. This season, after 5 games, the club is 7th with 2 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses. In qualifying, Solvan Liberec won 1-5 against Trakai in the second round, then 0-2 against Fotbal Club FCSB in the third round.
APOEL Nicosia, a historic Cypriot club and now accustomed to Europe, disappointed last year by finishing only third, but anyway saw its championship be stopped and not give a champion. This year, it’s still difficult with 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. In qualifying for the Europa, APOEl won 0-2 in Gjilani in the 1st round, 1-4 in Kaisar in the second, then 2-2 and a 4-2 tab victory against Zrinjski Mostar in the 3rd round .
Slovan Liberec finished 6th (out of 18) in the Czech league at home last year with 8 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses.
Slovan Liberec scored 34 goals and conceded 18 in 15 home league games last year.
APOEL Nicosia finished 4th (out of 12) in the Cypriot Away Championship last year with 3 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses.
APOEL Nicosia scored 12 goals and conceded as many in 12 away league games last year. Which made it the second best defense!
New for this season to lighten the calendars, the Europa League play-offs will be played in a single match. Slovan Liberec seems much better able to qualify for the play-offs and Nicosia should have a season without Europe. The Cypriot club have struggled too much since last year and should pay it cash. Qualification of Slovan Liberec!
