Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Pafos v APOEL match are shown here - as well as up-to-date odds.
Pafos will be hoping for a better result following a 2-0 First Division losing effort in their last game against Nea Salamis.
It’s been seldom in recent games where Pafos have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. The reality is that Pafos have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 matches, shipping 8 goals along the way. We will see if that trend can be continued on into this next match.
Taking a look at their past results, Pafos:
- have not been beaten in the league by APOEL in their previous 2 matches.
- are undefeated in their last 7 home league matches.
Previously, APOEL drew 1-1 in the First Division tie with AEK Larnaca.
The numbers tell their own story, and APOEL have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 9 goals overall. In defence, Thrylos certainly have room for improvement.
Pre-game facts show that APOEL:
- are winless against Pafos in away games against them for the last 2 matches in the league.
- are without a win away from home in their last 2 league matches.
