This is the second match in the Europa League, group H for both teams. Both teams lost their opening matches 1-2. Marseille lost at home to Eintracht Frankfurt and Apollon lost after a very good game to Lazio in Rome. Because of those losses, neither can really afford to lose this match.

Apollon Limassol has had a very solid start to their season. They knocked out FC Basel to get into the group stages for the second year in a row and they have also started Cyprus 1st division by winning all their three games so far with a goal difference of 11-1. It is their home form though which is very impressive. If you calculate all competitions, Apollon has won their last 18 home games in a row. This includes the league and cup matches in Limassol and the Europa League matches in Nicosia. Last season in the Europa League they drew at home with Lyon and Atalanta before losing to Everton in the final game.

Olympique Marseille has started their season inconsistently. They are 6th in the Ligue 1 with 13 points from 8 games. They have won four, drawn one and lost three. Especially away from home they have struggled with only one win and three losses. Marseille made it into the Europa League final last season but they still were poor away from home. They only managed one away win on their run to the final drawing games like against Oostende, Konyaspor and Domzale and losing to Salzburg, Vitoria Guimaraes and Sporting Braga. Apollon will definately have a chance at home against them.

Apollon team news:

Apollon should have all their players available.

Marseille team news:

Marseille will miss Adil Rami, Rolando, Morgan Sanson, Jordan Amavi and Clinton N´Jie.

Prediction:

Apollon can get something here so Apollon 0.5AH is the main pick here.
