Europa League betting and spectator preview: OFI and Apollon meet at Stadio Thódoros Vardinoyánnis to measure strength and learn who makes it to the next stage.

Apollon have a very long trip to this away game, as there's more than 1200 kilometers in distance to cover. This could prove a challenge, at least for the supporters.

OFI form and stats

All in all it has been a very rough period for OFI who hasn’t won a league-game in their last ten attempts. Their previous win was against Lamia, 200 days ago. We have seen two home losses in a row now for OFI, who are hoping that the phrase “third time lucky” applies to them.

OFI faced defeat in their previous match, away at Panathinaikos (2-3). Preceding that match was a Super League defeat to Olympiakos Piraeus (1-3).

Some supporters pointed their nail-bitten fingers at Joao Figueiredo for missing a penalty kick versus Panathinaikos in the 90th minute. It's possible that a goal in that situation would have changed the outcome.

Apollon form and stats

The traveling awayteam has defeated Saburtalo in order to reach 2nd Qualifying Round of Europa League. Last season their Europa League adventure ended in the play-offs.

As the visiting team in 1. Division matches, Apollon have produced an overall stat of 1-0-0 so far. Apollon has recorded two wins in a row in their away matches and hold legitimate hopes of a third one.

It's the second away game in a row for Apollon, but there's smiles all around after the 6-0 victory versus Ermis in the 1. Division last time out. Before that, Apollon secured a home win against Saburtalo with the score 5-1.

As you can tell from the results above, Apollon was very dominant against Ermis, winning the match with a scoreline that even the finest fortune teller couldn't predict. 6-0 (!) with B. Dabo, F. Matei, Attila Szalai, N. Diguiny, Diego Aguirre and C. Benschop providing the goals.

As for goals scored and conceded in the league games away so far, Apollon has managed 6 goals and let in 0 from 1 match.
