APOEL v Olympique Lyonnais latest odds, news and free bets

APOEL F.C. will be attempting to make history on Wednesday night when they entertain Lyon at the GSP Stadium, with the Cypriot champions standing on the verge of the Champions League quarter finals

Ivan Jovanović’s team won Group G ahead of Porto, Zenit and Shakhtar much to everyone’s surprise, with APOEL having been 33/1 to qualify before the group stage kicked off. A 1-0 defeat at the Stade de Gerland three weeks ago means they are well and truly in this tie.

The home side are available at 6/4 (bet365 £200 free bets) to win the game, something that may or may not be enough to claim a place in the last eight against an experienced Lyonnais team who only had Alexandre Lacazette’s 58th minute strike to show for their dominance in the first leg.

APOEL are a rather large 9/2 (Paddy Power bookmaker) to qualify from this tie and they have already beaten Porto and Zenit on home soil this term, while Lyon were slightly fortunate to go through after a freakish win in Croatia.

Nevertheless, the French side know that an away goal will make life very difficult for their opponents and they are a best price 2/11 (Ladbrokes) to go through on this basis, with APOEL needing to win 1-0 to take the game into extra-time and by two clear goals to go through in normal time.
