Sutjeska hosts APOEL in the first leg of the Champions League qualification quarterfinals. The match will be played on Tuesday, July 23rd at Stadion Gradski (Nikšić)
The champion of Montenegro created a very loud sensation. The problems of Slovakian football are obvious, but so quick elimination of the champion ... On the eve, the Montenegrin team had a streak of six consecutive defeats. Even at home, the team was unable to resist conditional Astana or Debrecen. But what has changed? Yes, almost nothing. Slovan conceded a stupid goal at home in the last minute and led the entire away match to a confident victory but conceded the stupidest goal again. Montenegrin team managed to win on penalties with the help of the goalkeeper. The quality of the game is deplorable, and the squad is made up of rather mediocre local players. Plus, the season did not start. APOEL had already got used to it for so many years, but Sutjeska held a streak of friendly matches with weak opponents, after which it immediately played against Slovan.

After the most real failure in the last season, APOEL returns to the Champions League with serious intentions. Recall that a year ago the team relegated in the first confrontation of the tournament, when APOEL lost to modest Suduva, and it all started with a defeat in Lithuania (3:1). That fiasco almost did not affect the champion of Cyprus. APOEL almost got to the Europa League group. What should we expect in the new season? The team held a series of friendly meetings with strong rivals. They even managed to defeat Shakhtar with the help of a scored ball of Hallenius, who is the newcomer of the club. Kevin Lafrans and Vid Belec - the former keeper of Sampdoria – came to the team. In general, there are enough purchases, and all of them are very decent. Players have become accustomed to starting the Champions League after friendly games, but now they will not have to fly far. It is advisable for APOEL to solve everything at once because the bitter experience of departure in the first round is felt.
The passage of the Cyprus team is likely to happen. The only question is how quickly APOEL will solve all the questions. The squad is very decent, and last year’s failure presses ... It’s not critical to play in Montenegro, so we are waiting for the favorite’s victory in the first game.
Prediction for the match: APOEL to win
