APOEL vs Botev Plovdiv Prediction, Odds and Free Betting Tips 28/07/2022

APOEL Nicosia hosts Botev Plovdiv of Bulgaria in the second leg of Round 2, Europa Conference League qualifiers. We preview the match scheduled for 28th July in this post, so read further to find out how we have tipped the game to end.

APOEL vs Botev Plovdiv Free Betting Predictions by Football Ground Guide

APOEL hosts Bulgaria team, Plovdid, for the first time. The hosts will fight for three points after a barren draw in the first leg. Will there be a winner in this second meeting between APOEL and Botev Plovdiv? Here are our best three picks for the match.

APOEL to win the duel

APOEL has been strong at back, and with that, home advantage should favour them in this important match. With no loss in the last five matches this fixture will likely end in favour of APOEL. They have also not lost in their last five home games. On the flip-side, Plovdid lacks victory in their last five away assignments ahead of the game.

Under 2.5 goals

The first leg was a barren draw. We expect an ever more difficult second leg. The first leg was a defensive display and given the defensive record of the hosts, we expect another deadlocked match without fewer than 3 goals.

Goals more likely on one side

The visitors are likely to concede the first goal. However, we don’t foresee a goal from the visitors based on their recent stats. Plovdiv lost thrice and bagged two draws in the last five games. They scored only two goals in one game during that run, a poor scoring run that will be their undoing in this trip.

APOEL vs Botev Plovdiv UEFA Europa Conference League Qualifiers, Round 2, Second Leg Preview

APOEL Nicosia

After a barren draw in the first leg away from home, APOEL of Cyprus has a second chance to put everything to rest in the Round 2 of Europa Conference League qualifiers. They are now unbeaten in five matches, a record that will play significance in their quest for a place in the next round of the Europa Conference League matches.

APOEL Nicosia has had four clean sheets in their last five games, a record that speaks of their strong defensive display ahead of the game. This will be the second home game in six games, so we expect the hosts to fight for a positive result. Notably, APOEL Nicosia has not lost in the last five home games, four of which were draws. However, they have only one clean sheet from a barren draw in the last five home games. So, just like the clean sheet in the first leg of the competition, a clean sheet win should be a top priority for the hosts in this game.

Botev Plovdiv

Botev Plovidiv couldn’t turn home advantage into victory in the first leg of this competition. They will now travel to Cyprus to face APOEL for the second time and the question is if they can do magic on the road. The visitors are without a win in their last five away games. It is a haunting record; especially of we factor in the significance of this trip. The visitors have two draws and three losses in their last five trips. They failed to score in three of their last five away games.
