Kyzyl-Zhar will face APOEL in the second leg of the 3rd qualifying round of the Conference League. How will the game end? Our portal gives a forecast for the meeting.
The Kazakh club in the previous round of the Conference League passed the Croatian "Osijek". The first match in Kazakhstan ended with the victory of the guests with a score of 2:1, while "Kyzyl-Zhar" finished the meeting with ten. The only ball in the goal of "Osijek" was the result of confusion involving the defender and the goalkeeper. As a result — an autogall. A week later, Kyzyl-Zhar beat the opponent on the road with a score of 2:0 and advanced to the next round of the tournament. The team lost the first match in Cyprus, and a few days later lost in the Kazakhstan Cup. "Kaspiy" beat the opponent on the road with a score of 3:1.
The club from Cyprus, like Kyzyl-Zhar, played three matches in the Conference League qualification. What immediately catches the eye is that APOEL has not yet conceded a single goal. In the 2nd qualifying round, the Cypriot club coped with the Bulgarian "Botev". The first match ended in a goalless draw, and APOEL beat the opponent at home with a score of 2:0. The Cyprus Championship starts only at the end of August, and at the end of last season, Sofronis Augusti's team took third place.
Statistics and figures:
- APOEL is the favorite of the upcoming match;
- Kyzyl-Zhar has six defeats in the last seven matches;
- APOEL have suffered just one defeat in their last eight meetings;
- Previously, the teams met each other only once;
- A week ago, APOEL beat the opponent with a score of 1-0.
The deplorable statistics of "Kyzyl-Zhyr" does not add optimism to its fans. Let's assume that this time the victory will go to the club from Cyprus.
