APOEL is one of the teams that participate in European competitions' group phase or at least get to the last qualifying rounds each year. They were absolute favorites to defeat Suduva, but after losing 3:1 in Lithuania, they are on a brink of elimination. APOEL were losing by 3:0 after 19 minutes of the game, but Caju scored in the last seconds of the match and gave a glimpse of hope to his team. APOEL will have to attack from the first minute of the match and try to annihilate Suduva's lead as soon as possible.

Although they were outsiders before the first leg started, Suduva showed they have no fear of APOEL. They played a fantastic game, but the late goal from Caju might make a huge difference in the rematch. Suduva will be defensive and try to save their two goals lead, but if APOEL manages to score two without conceding, we will see a very open and interesting game.
