APOEL Nicosia – Statistics & Current Form
After the first 90 minutes, Thomas Doll has already drawn the fans of the Cypriot top club to his side. After the first leg against Azerbaijan’s master Qarabag Agdam was lost 2-1 at home, coach Paolo Tramezzani was released after ten months. Doll, who had to relegation with Hannover 96 last, was presented as new coach just hours later.
He did not have much time to get to know his team. As a result, there have been no major changes in system or tactics. The Cypriot series champion (since the 2012/13 season, the team could consistently get the title) presented itself but much more biting than in the first leg. A penalty kick and a goal by ex-Austria legionnaire Uros Matic (brother of Manchester United star Nemanja Matic) ensured a 2-0 victory.
With a total score of 3: 2, the multi-cultural team (20 of 32 Kaderspieler are legionnaires, nine different nations were in the starting lineup) could fix the progress. This is the minimum goal – a group stage – achieved. There is no pressure against the huge favorite on Tuesday. APOEL Nicosia has nothing to lose this time and can play free.
Despite home advantage to be treated as a clear outsider, is in view of the squad quality quite understandable. However, some teams have already stumbled in the GSP Stadium. Lucrative between APOEL Nicosia and Ajax Amsterdam we do not feel the tip on the guests. A handicap success, which brings high betting odds, is associated with too much risk.
Expected formation of APOEL Nicosia:
↪ Belec -Lafrance, Ioannou, Merkis – Mihajlovic, Gentsoglou, Matic, Al-Taamari – de Vincenti, Pavlovic, Bezjak

Ajax Amsterdam – Statistics & Current Form
The last season has definitely made you want more. With attractive football, Ajax Amsterdam became the center of attention. There will be no gala performances of de Ligt or de Jong this year, and yet the team of Erik ten Hag is not to be underestimated. Many star players have continued to the club known. Dusan Tadic, Hakim Ziyech, David Neres and Donnie van de Beek continue to conjure up for Ajax Amsterdam.
The sovereignty of the past season is still missing a bit. In the third qualifying round, Ajax Amsterdam had to shake a lot more than expected. In the duel with PAOK Thessaloniki there was a 2-2 draw in Greece, in the home game Ajax was even with 0: 1 back. At this point, the team would be eliminated, but the game could be turned and with a 3: 2, the expected progress was fixed.
The offensive of the Amsterdamer can be seen again this season. Goals are produced on the assembly line, but the defensive has not gotten tight in recent weeks. Only in the 5-0 home win against underdog FC Emmen could be kept zero.
Overall, there were seven goals in the last five competitive games to cope. In this regard, on Tuesday evening between APOEL Nicosia and Ajax Amsterdam both the prediction on the “Both teams to score” as well as an over 2.5 could be an interesting alternative.
Personally, behind full-back Noussair Mazraoui is a question mark due to knee problems. Otherwise, Erik ten Hag can trust in his best formation. In the next few days Ajax could still make a real transfer coup with the Spanish top talent Dani Olmo. The player of Dinamo Zagreb, to which the Bavarians were tuned, will probably soon be seen in Amsterdam.
Expected formation of Ajax Amsterdam:
↪ Onana – Tagliafico, Martinez, Alvarez, Veltmann, – Marin, Blind – Neres, van de Beek, Ziyech – Tadic
