Team News: Apollon Limassol
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just one fitness concern for the Apollon Limassol gaffer to be concerned with thanks to an almost full-strength set of players. Ilian Iliev (Metatarsal Fracture) is out of contention.
Team News: Maccabi Haifa
Maccabi Haifa boss Barak Bakhar has to choose a team with limited availability. Raz Meir (Hip Injury) and Mahmoud Jaber (Femoral Fracture) can’t be considered.
Here, we’re thinking that Apollon Limassol will need to put in a solid display to find the net against this Maccabi Haifa lineup who we reckon should end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore expecting a very even contest with a 0-1 winning margin for Maccabi Haifa when the full-time whistle blows.
It should be a good one.
