Lyon vs APOEL by Jamesington
Having scored away from home against both Porto and Shakhtar in the group stages, APOEL should certainly not be overawed by the challenge of facing Lyon in France. If anything, this match against the French side - who have a very strong pedigree in previous Champions League campaigns - should be a simpler task than visiting Porto, such a strong attacking side.
Of the two teams, APOEL are in better form having won three and drawn two of their last five matches. Lyon have won one in five, drawing three matches and - most recently - losing at home to Caen.
While APOEL are the smallest team left in the competition they should not be scared by this visit to Lyon and will use their counter-attacking style to get at Lyon whenever the French break forward and hopefully they can score at least once - making our bet a winner.
As an insurance policy I would advise a 1pt bet on No Goalscorer (this bet is better than 0-0 as if their is an own goal and the game finishes with only that goal then you still win) at odds of 11.0
We then have two cards to play, 1) if Lyon set out to attack the Cypriot side can get them on the counter attack 2) if both sides are cagey and defensive then we have the scoreless result to fall back on. Either result would deliver a profit.
