Anderlecht – APOEL Prediction & Preview and Betting Tips (16.03.2017)


Prediction for Anderlecht – APOEL

Anderlecht to win @ 1.55

A striking match on Thursday is the one to be held by Anderlecht and APOEL for the 8th finals of the Europa League (return).


To my knowledge, the Belgian box leaves slightly like favorite due to the local factor and mainly because its players have greater individual and collective hierarchy. For that reason and considering that they need to risk to lose 1-0 the match played in Cyprus, we advise you to play a few euros to the bet “Anderlecht scores more 1.5 goals”. At stake is to get the classification to the 4th finals.
Take into account that Anderlecht managed to classify this instance after eliminating Russian Zenit in an incredible way (key equalized at the end of 3-3 after winning 2-0 the first leg and losing 3-1 the lap). The highlight of this match was to see how the Belgians scored the goal as a visitor in the absence of a few minutes for the final whistle.

On the other hand do not forget that the Belgian box has classified to the play offs by the title of its country, being its main rival, Bruges (classic). Playing as a local in the regular round has added 10 wins, 4 equal and 1 single drop in total (38 goals in favor and 11 ceded on his fence). He has won 3 consecutive games in his stadium, being the last one a few days ago (3-0 against Waasland-Beveren).
Continuing with the analysis you must know that APOEL arrives motivated to this game after eliminating the combative and intense Athletic Bilbao Spanish. His performance was more than optimum by losing 3-2 tight in the new San Mamés and winning 2-0 in Cypriot territory.


To finish we tell you that the Cypriots will try to raise a tactical match in the midfield, trying to populate that area of ​​the field. Of course, they will try not to neglect the attack as they did before the Basques in the previous round (2 goals scored which served to calmly face the return in their field).

Against this background I play for the bet “Anderlecht scores more 1.5 goals” due to the following reasons: First because Anderlecht is a great Belgian, demonstrating it throughout his local league. Therefore, it is not surprising that he manages the midfield and forward his lines during much of the game and above all until he achieves the goals that allow him to ensure his classification. Second because the Belgians already achieved this pick before a rival of greater hierarchy in the previous round, being possible that they repeat the positive of that action (2-0 win against Russian Zenit). And thirdly because APOEL, despite having shown itself as a combative group in its actions, is still irregular in defense when it acts as a visitor to higher-level opponents. Faced with this reality and knowing that he received 3 goals in the new San Mamés, we believe that Anderlecht can score at least two and very possibly achieve their classification.
