Competition: Champions League
Market: APOEL to win against TNS
Odds: 4/7 @ Bet 365
Cypriot title-winners APOEL Nicosia travel to Park Hall to face Welsh Premier Division champions The New Saints in the first leg of the second round of the Champions League qualifiers, and are favourites to come out on top given their superior European pedigree in.
The New Saints have only made it past the second qualifying round of the Champions League just once post-millennium, but have fallen short at this stage in each of the last four seasons. They made this summer’s qualifiers after winning the Welsh title, but failed to win 44% of their games.
And with opponents APOEL Nicosia winning 20 of their 26 league games to win the crown last season, booking their place in the Champions League qualifiers, the visitors are favourites to come out on top at Park Hall.
APOEL have real history in Europe, having made the quarter-finals of the Champions League in 2012, while making the group stages of the Champions League and Europa League in three of the following four seasons.
As a result, Bet 365 are backing APOEL Nicosia with odds of 4/7 to win against The New Saints in tonight’s clash at Park Hall.
