Sparta Prague vs Aris Limassol: Top free betting tips
Prepare for an exciting UEFA Europa League showdown as Sparta Prague gear up for their third group stage appearance in the 2020s. They will lock horns with Cryriot outfit Aris Limassol in Round 1 of the Group C.
Match result prediction: Sparta Prague to win
Historically, Aris have struggled in away European fixtures, losing three of their four UEFA road matches. Their task will be complicated by an in-form Sparta, who are on a four-match winning streak. With home advantage to call upon, it is difficult to see any other result than a victory for the hosts at the epet ARENA.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
Both Sparta and Aris have been scoring for fun in recent weeks with 14 goals apiece in their last four matches. The Czech outfit has only conceded two goals in this period while Aris Limassol has conceded four goals. As they meet to kickstart their group proceedings, we expect them to continue their goal-scoring streak. Based on their respective performances, we expect to see over 2.5 goals in this Europa League matchup.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Sparta Prague
Sparta have laid waste to whoever has come against them with Slovacko suffering at their hands. However, they will be wary in their first group outing, with the only objective being to claim the points on offer. Their scoring prowess should see them score twice and can take some damage against the inspired Limassol. Going with a conservative approach, we anticipate a 2-1 conclusion to this match.
