Only if Solari is kept out and those that do play are hungry enough for the championship.

I can not stand to read these forums and articles where all the talk is not taking APOEL seriously just because it is a Cypriot team. Even if APOEL does not win another single match, it still shocked many teams and pundits and the whole of the RoC is proud of them for not losing any match in three consecutive games. Well done APOEL...keep proving them wrong!

Fkn love it.

We'll always be underdogs.
I get a kick when anything Cypriot throws a wrench in the system. And we do it often!

But its back to the usual 'tiny island' business when we lose big. Its expected after all.

Its a win, win situation. 8)

APOEL make Champions League history

(AFP) – 1 hour ago

SAINT PETERSBURG, Russia — APOEL Nicosia became the first Cypriot club to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League on Wednesday when they drew 0-0 with Zenit St Petersburg in Russia in their Group G clash.

APOEL - formed in a sweet shop 85 years ago - have nine points after five games and lead Zenit by a point while Portuguese champions Porto, who play Shakhtar Donetsk later on Wednesday can close the gap between them and the Cypriot outfit to two points.

However, even were APOEL - who had 2,000 faithful fans in the stadium - to lose their final match to Shakhtar in a fortnight only one of Zenit or Porto can overtake them as they face each other.

The Cypriot side manager Ivan Jovanovic couldn't hide his satisfaction with his side's historic achievement.

"It's a fantastic result for us!" he said. "We're trying to play attacking football. We may be a small team if compared to the European giants but we're a team with a big heart!

"My players all have a strong desire to succeed. APOEL is a good team consisting of good players, who are playing their best in every single match. We all worked hard and managed to achieve a major success."
