Reasons For Real Madrid vs APOEL Nicosia predictions & Betting Tips
Real Madrid are favourites for this match with odds of 1.18 with Unibet. APOEL Nicosia are the outsiders at the GSP Stadium stadium with huge odds of 17.00 with bet365 to pull off a shock win on Tuesday.
Back in September, Madrid beat APOEL 3-0 at home and we’re expecting a similar outcome in Cyprus. Los Blancos may not be in great form and have suffered a number of injury problems, but we can’t see them being caused too many problems here.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice in that win at the Bernabeu, and we’re backing him to score the first goal here at 3.05 with Unibet. He may only have 1 league goal in 8 matches this season, but has scored 6 in 4 in the Champions League.
Tottenham Hotspur are currently top of the group, and if they win away at Borussia Dortmund in the other match on Tuesday then they will guarantee top spot in the group.
It looks almost impossible for Madrid to overtake them now given that the English side are three points ahead and have head-to-head advantage, but they will want a win in Nicosia to boost their confidence and keep the pressure up.
APOEL may have held Borussia Dortmund to draws both at home and away, but Real Madrid is another prospect. We’re backing a repeat of the September scoreline, with a 3-0 away win priced at 7.00 with bet365.
APOEL Nicosia vs Real Madrid Form
Real Madrid have won just one of their last four matches, with Saturday’s draw in the Madrid derby leaving them 10 points behind leaders Barcelona in La Liga. They need a win in Cyprus if they are to have any chance of winning the group still.
Real Madrid Form
As mentioned, Madrid have been out of sorts recently particularly in attack. Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema have scored just one league goal each, and they looked distinctly second best against Tottenham in the Champions League earlier this month.
Real Madrid Form: DWLLWW
APOEL Nicosia Form
APOEL managed draws home and away against Borussia Dortmund, but aren’t doing so well domestically and are currently down in 5th in the Cypriot league. However, they have won their last two matches including a 3-1 away triumph at rivals Omonia Nicosia on Friday.
