Both teams to score

Apoel Nicosia have the difficult assignment of overturning a 2-0 first-leg lead by Gent. However, with home support and a better plan after the first leg, we think the hosts stand a good scoring chance in this second leg. Gent remains the favourite to win this second leg as well, so backing both teams to score in this game is a good bet.

Apoel on the other hand have a 33% win probability with odds of 3.00. From the look of it, this clash could end in favour of either side as Apoel will be more than determined to overturn the narrow 2-0 defeat from the first leg.

With that, the second Apoel Nicosia vs Gent prediction is over 2.5 goals full-time result.

Apoel to score first

It is hard to imagine Gent going down first in this game. However, they lost the last away game to Pogon in round 3 of the Conference League qualifiers. Apoel Nicosia have shown some reliance, not to mention a relatively good run of form in the qualifiers.

Most importantly, Apoel Nicosia’s head coach,  Ricardo Sa Pinto seemingly knows how to beat Gent’s Hein Van having done so thrice in 4 duels and settled for the spoils with the visiting manager on one occasion. For us, it is Apoel Nicosia to score first on matchday.
