Team News: Pafos
Pafos manager Željko Kopić has no fitness concerns at all coming into this clash owing to a completely injury-free squad ready to go.
Team News: Ermis Aradippou
Due to a mostly full-strength squad, there’s just the one fitness worry for the Ermis Aradippou manager Demetris Daskalakis to be concerned with. Stelios Dimitriou (Bruised Knee) won’t be in action.
Our thinking is that Pafos can and should be able to create a decent number of chances and shots on target.
At the same time, Ermis Aradippou will not find it easy to get shooting opportunities but we do fancy them getting enough chances to score, too.
Therefore, we are anticipating a 3-1 winning margin for Pafos at the end of the 90 minutes.
