Everton to edge past Apollon Limassol in Europa League clash at Goodison Park

Everton have suffered a topsy-turvy couple of weeks, as having been trounced by Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United in the Premier League, they were also thrashed by Atalanta 3-0 in the Europa League in a torrid ten days, but fresh from an EFL Cup win and a league success the Toffees will return to European action on Thursday night and host Cypriot side Apollon Limassol at Goodison Park.

  • Everton lost 3-0 to Atalanta in first Europa League game
  • Apollon Limassol drew 1-1 with Lyon in Group E opener
  • Everton have won their last two matches in all competitions

Tips Both Teams To Score    Best Bet @ 21 / 20  

How Will It Go?

Two Oumar Niasse goals turned a 1-0 deficit to a 2-1 victory over Bournemouth at the weekend, and Ronald Koeman will hope his Everton side can build on that win, and the Merseysiders are 3/10 favourites with bet365 to bag another victory, but they will need to bounce back from that aforementioned Atalanta loss, where they were extremely poor, and a win will be needed if they are to get back into contention in Group E.

Apollon Limassol picked up a decent point in their first Europa League match, as they drew 1-1 with Lyon, but this will be a much stiffer task as they go on their travels, and they are as big as 11/1 with Betfred bookmakers to pick up a shock win, while the draw is a best-priced 9/2 with Ladbrokes.

A 3-0 win over Sunderland in the EFL Cup before the Bournemouth win shows that the Toffees are decent on home soil, so you have to feel that Koeman will field a strong side, as he will want to get three points, but they could be tested at times from their Cypriot rivals, but ultimately the English side can prevail.
Match Odds:

Both Teams To Score

Four goals scored, and 14 conceded is hardly statistics associated with Everton, but as they sit 14th in the Premier League they will be eager to tighten up their leaky defence. However, Apollon Limassol have made a bright start to their league campaign, winning one, and drawing two, which has seen them score six goals, and they could well prove the Everton rearguard a few problems.

They managed to grab a goal against Lyon, so they can duly do the same at Everton on Thursday night, and the 21/20 available with Coral bookmakers is worth snapping up, and is a far more attractive betting proposition than an Everton win, while an Everton success and both teams scoring in the 90 minutes is an eye-catching 21/10 with William Hill.
BTTS Odds:

Toffees To Edge It At Goodison

If Everton are to get an early goal then they could well cruise to victory, but if Apollon Limassol can see out the home side's initial attacks then they could well try and disgruntle the crowd further. However, Koeman's men should be able to outclass their rivals, and the 21/2 with Unibet for a 3-1 Everton win is worth a bet, as the Toffees can bounce back from a stick start to life in the Europa League.
