The SK Sturm Graz has already said goodbye to qualifying for the Europa League. And even for the second Austrian representative in the UEFA Europa League, the fans of the red-white-red football have concerns whether it is not another disappointment to cope. After a weak start to the season in the game between Austria Vienna against Apollon Limassol is a tip for a progress of the violets associated with risk!
Football Betting Prediction Austria Vienna vs Apollon Limassol
From the euphoria in the camp of the violets is felt after only two Bundesliga games nothing more. The disillusionment has moved back into Vienna favorites. The Ilzer-Elf is already under pressure in the fourth competitive game of the season. The guests from Cyprus trembled in the third qualifying round and had to go against an Irish representative in the extension. The guests are by no means a “Mission Impossible”. It is all the more important from Austria’s point of view that winners of the home win against Austria Vienna and Apollon Limassol will be crowned with success.
Austria Vienna – Statistics & Current Form
Minus and Minus are not always necessarily plus. This had to learn the Vienna Austria last weekend in the first home game against Vice Champion LASK. Neo-trainer Christian Ilzer had not been able to celebrate a win against the Black and Whites the previous year as WAC coaches (one draw, three defeats) and also the violets had this negative record against the LASK. The LASK remains the fear opponent of Ilzer & Austria Vienna and was able to prevail thanks to the standard strength with 3: 0! The violets are already burning after only 180 Bundesliga minutes. Two games, two defeats, goal difference 1: 6! That’s what everyone involved imagined quite differently.
An ideal preparation for the first international game of the year certainly looks different. On the positive side, however, there was an increase in the game against the LASK. However, the defensive in standards must be more stable and the game forward still has a lot of room for improvement. Despite two-man storm Vienna Austria is currently not dangerous.
“The fact is that we need a change as soon as possible” – Christian Ilzer
The Europa League game against Apollon Limassol is thus also a great mental test for the violets. Due to the weak results Austria Vienna is even against outsiders against Apollon Limassol according to current odds in the “to-qualify bets”. Qualitatively, the squad is by no means worse, but the team needs success. Due to the injury-related failures of Christian Schoissengeyr, Aleksandar Borkovic and Alon Turgeman and the lack of eligibility of city loaner Palmer-Brown Ilzer has little alternatives available.

Apollon Limassol – Statistics & Current Form
A crisis in the national championship Apollon Limassol does not even have, because the Cypriot league is still in the summer break. The international qualifying matches must therefore always be played by the teams from Cyprus in the middle of the preparation. In the meantime, head coach Sofronis Avgousti’s team have had four competitive games in their favor and have won three games in their favor.
However, the Lithuanian representative Kauno Zalgiris and the team from Ireland, the Shamrock Rovers, can only be described as second-rate in international comparison. Still, a real show of strength was needed to bring the Shamrock Rovers to their knees. After the 1: 2 defeat in the first leg Apollon Limassol sat down after extra time in the second leg with 3: 1. Apollon Limassol had to act outnumbered from minute 67, as captain Papoulis was expelled from the field. The 34-year-old playmaker will leave a big gap in the first leg.
Also because of his failure, we take distance in the match between Austria Vienna and Apollon Limassol from a tip on the guests. As a particularly strong away from the Cypriots can not be called, so probably a draw or even a narrow defeat including a self-scored goal would be a result that would be quite satisfactory for the guests.
Probable Team of Apollon Limassol:
↳ Mall – Aguirre, Tamba M’Pinda, Yuste, Pedro – Kyriakou, Markovic – Gakpe, Pereyra, Gianniotas – Zelaya
