APOEL – Real Madrid – UEFA Champions League Prediction and Preview: 21st November 2017
APOEL is ranked 4th in the UEFA Champions League group H, with 2 points accumulating in 4 games. The hosts are going through a fairly good period, with 7 points in the last 3 championship games. Previously, APOEL managed to defeat Omonia on the way with a score of 3-1. The hosts will not be able to count on the Dutch goalkeeper B. Waterman who is injured. Except for this, Cypriots can send the best 11 possible in the field.
Gudino – Vouros, Rueda, Carlao, Lago – Sallai, Morais, Vinicius, Aloneftis – Ebecilio, Camargo
On the other side, Real Madrid is ranked second in the Champions League, with 7 points so far. Zinedine Zidane’s students do not have a good time, with only one victory recorded in the last 4 official games: 3-0 in the championship against Las Palmas. In the last round, the Madridians drew on the field of Atletico Madrid with the score of 0-0. Gareth Bale, M. Kovacic, K. Navas and D. Carvajal will not perform this move due to medical problems. Cristiano Ronaldo is the scorer of the Champions League team with 6 goals scored.
Casilo – Nacho, Varane, Ramos – Marcelo – Casemiro – Modric, Isco, Kroos – Ronaldo, Benzema
Real Madrid can not afford the wrong moves, given that Dortmund still has mathematical chances at the second position. I’m expecting a game completely dominated by Zinedine Zidane’s students, at a Cypriot gate assault.
