St Joseph’s make their European debut today when they take on Cypriot side AEL Limassol, and we take a brief look at their counterparts at the Estadio Algarve tonight.
Limassol are playing in European competition for the first time since 2014-15, where they lost to Zenit in the Champions League and Tottenham in the Europa League qualifiers. In 2012-13, they did reach the group stages of the Europa League after narrowly losing out in the Champions League playoffs against Anderlecht. In that group they notably won against Marseille while also securing a draw at home to Monchengladbach, which shows the level of opposition Saints will have to face today.
They have also won six Cypriot league titles, most recently in 2011-12, and qualified for the Europa League this year by finishing fourth in the Cypriot league, 10 points behind second place AEK Larnaca who take on Lincoln this evening as well.
Their current manager is the 39-year old Portuguese, Bruno Miguel Nunes Baltazar whose post-playing career has seen him manage a number of teams in Portugal and now Cyprus, while he was also the assistant manager of the Filipino national team for a short time in 2014.
Andreas Kyriakou, a 23-year old defender, was the only Limassol player in the Cyprus squad when they took on Gibraltar earlier this month, while two of their other players, Dossa Junior and Marios Nicolaou, were called up for the fixture in Cyprus last year. Tonight’s match officials are Faroese and the referee is Petur Reinert who has been refereeing games in European competition since 2007
