Apollon Limassol vs Marseille-Preview

  • Olympique de Marseille travel to Cyprus to face Apollon Limassol in this second round of Europa League (EL) Group K. Both sides will look to bounce back from defeat in the previous round, in what will be the first-ever meeting between them.
  • Though 2017/18 EL finalists Marseille are a class apart from anyone in the Cypriot First Division (CFD), Apollon come into this clash after winning their last ten home CFD matches. This is the best-ever home run in the club’s history, with Apollon scoring 3.6 goals per game on average.
  • Remarkably, Apollon have not been involved in a single draw across their last 28 fixtures in all competitions. Overall, their record from those games is: W17, L11. The presence of any sort of better opposition is usually fatal to their hopes though, with Apollon winless in their last 12 EL group stage fixtures (D3, L9).
  • Marseille suffered a disappointing last-gasp loss (89’ min) at home against Frankfurt in matchday one (2-1). Away form offers little encouragement, with the team having won only one of their four away games in their Ligue 1 (L1) campaign (W1, L3), conceding an average of exactly three goals per game.
  • Players to watch:

Apollon’s new signing Facundo Pereyra highlighted his recent form by scoring one goal in each of his last three CFD appearances. Meanwhile, Florian Thauvin is the L1’s second-highest scorer so far, with six goals for Marseille.

  • Stat attack:

Marseille have claimed only one win in their last ten away EL fixtures (W1, D4, L5).

  • In two home games against French sides in continental competition, Apollon have never been defeated (W1, D1).
  • Marseille were trounced 3-0 (by Apollon’s local rivals AEL Limassol) in their only competitive trip to Cyprus thus far, back in the 2012/13 EL campaign.
