AEL Limassol take on the visitors Austria Vienna at “Antonis Papadopoulos Stadium” in the second-leg game of the Qualification semi-final of the UEFA Europa League 2017/2018. The match will be played in Larnaca on Wednesday, August 2nd. The first-leg clash ended with 0:0 draw.
Last season AEL Limassol occupied only the fourth place in the Cyprus First Division. This season the club showed strong play even though the Cyprus First Division hasn’t started yet, the team has already conducted five encounters with not a single loss in them. The Cypriots have already knocked out St Josephs 4:0, 6:0 and Niedercorn 1:0, 2:1 in the UEFA Europa League plus AEL Limassol managed to gain a draw in the first-leg game in Austria. At their home field AEL Limassol demonstrate consistent football, having lost only two clashes at their own turf during the last 11 months.

As for Austria Vienna, the team’s play doesn’t impress in this season as the club has conducted three official games already with not a single goal scored for, however, it has conceded only in one encounter but three goals from Altach. Playing on the road is a weak point of the Austrian club as the team got five victories, two draws and three defeats in 10 away matches in 2017.
Judging from the first games of the season, AEL Limassol feel much better than Austria Vienna. The Cypriot side knocked out its weaker opponents because of its higher class while proving its ability to show rock-solid defense in the reverse fixture in Austria. I believe that there won’t be many goals scored in the upcoming battle in Cyprus as any mistake would mean a defeat in the it.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 scored goals.
