The 6 times in a row Champions of Cyprus, are threatened with an premature elimination from the European tournaments due to their defeat 3-1 in Lithuania. Things would be worst if the score remained 3-0 as at 19' of the game. However Caju's goal at 90'+4 changed things for the Tuesday's night game in Cyprus. The most important of all is that it changed the moral of APOEL's players. Portugal manager Bruno Baltazar still has problems to solve, but there is still hope and optimism that they will be able to beat Lithuanian team. The latest years APOEL have proved to be in upper level and they often perform well in home European games.
On the other hand, Suduva managed to take the lead in the first game as Rigino Cicilia scored 3 goals quite early. They are a team without any European experience so it isn't very possible to cope with such a difficult match.
APOEL are superior than Suduva in all levels and I believe that either way they will overturn first game's score. In addition, the climate will be an ally for Cyprus team, since Lithuania's team aren't used to play under such high temperature that Cyprus has every summer. APOEL's win with more than one goal difference is a very possible scenario.
