On Thursday, on “Stade Josy Barthel” in Luxembourg, we have the match Dudelange vs APOEL, in the Europa League.
Dudelange – moment form, latest results, statistics
Dudelange has recovered in the domestic competition and is on the 6th place, with 17 points in 12 rounds, goaltending 27-17. In the last stage, he drew, at home, with UNA Strassen, score 2-2. In the last six championship games, Dudelange lost only with Fola, away, 1-2. It is no longer the same domination as in the past, but perhaps the Luxembourg championship has grown in value as well. In his group, Dudelange has three points, obtained even in the first round, 4-3 at APOEL. There were three defeats in a row, the last one against Sevilla, at home, score 2-5. Interestingly, the terrain looked awful then. Just as the turf was in the match in the Euro preliminaries, between Luxembourg and Portugal.
APOEL – moment form, latest results, statistics
APOEL was kind of laughing through that defeat with Dudelange from the first stage, but then accumulated four points in the next three games and is in second place in Group A. Victoria was won against Qarabag, at home, 2-1. In fact, since that failure with the Luxembourgers, the Nicosia group has only lost to Sevilla, 0-1, away. In the championship, APOEL is on the 3rd place, with 17 points collected in 7 stages, goal scoring 15-3. The safest defense in Cyprus.
Dudelange vs APOEL Nicosia Picks
There were 20 sutures on the gate in the tour game, 4-3 for Dudelange, but something tells me that the field will not look as good on Thursday night. But that does not mean that the two teams can not score many goals. In fact, I expect to be laughing in defense, especially in the hosts. But as both keep chances of qualification, the next prognosis tempts me, on the cards. Especially with the Italian Rocchi at the center. It is a power station that does not tolerate the hard entrances and that demands much respect on the lawn. Therefore, there were at least six cards in five of the last six parties arbitrated by Rocchi, regardless of competition.
Our Prediction: Over 2.5
