Last year, Aris Thessaloniki took 5th place in the Greek championship and thus secured a place for the second qualifying round thanks to a very good season. On the other hand, the preparation was very complicated for this team which lost its first 3 friendly matches played against Fortuna Sittard (5-1), La Gantoise (3-0) and PSV Eindhoven (3-0). This weekend, they still have to challenge the Atromitos Athens.
For its part, the AEL Limassol completed the podium of the Cypriot championship by ranking not far behind the Apoel Nicosia and the Apollon Limassol and won the national cup. The club has yet to face Oleksandria and Puskas FC to gain pace and confidence before tackling this double confrontation.
