Two seasons after they reached the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League, APOEL FC marked their return to the competition with a 1-1 draw against NK Maribor in the first leg of their third qualifying round tie.

Ahead at the interval through Esmaël Gonçalves's goal, the Nicosia outfit looked to be in the driving seat at GSP Stadium, the site of so many heroics during their historic 2011/12 campaign. But APOEL were pegged back on 64 minutes, Maribor captain Tavares striking to give the Slovenian champions an away goal to defend in the second leg.
