Apollon Limassol manager Sofronis Avgousti hopes Cypriot fans can do to Aberdeen what the Red Army did to them.
Avgousti, pictured, reckons the 20,000-strong crowd at a sell-out Pittodrie helped the Dons secure a 2-1 win in the third qualifying round first leg.
Now, for the return leg tomorrow, Avgousti has challenged the 7,400 sell-out to help drive Apollon into the next round.
Avgousti will take his place among the crowd as he is serving a one game dug-out ban for over-celebrating their equaliser at Pittodrie.
He raced on to the pitch after Brazilian Jander scored to make it 1-1. Finnish referee Mattias Gestranius highlighted his over-exuberant celebration in his match report and Uefa hammered him with the ban.
Former Cyprus international keeper Avgousti said: “We will have a full stadium in Larnaca and our fans will push our team and give their support.
“That way we can hopefully win and qualify for the next round.
“We believe we can win the game with the help of the fans and progress to the next round.”
Before the 2-1 win in the Granite City, Dons boss Derek McInnes had issued a rallying call for the Red Army to make the Cypriots feel the power of Pittodrie.
They responded with a raucous atmosphere.
Avgousti admits it had an affect early on in the tie.
He said: “We felt the pressure from the Aberdeen fans a little bit as it was a sold-out game.
“We didn’t start very well and conceded that early goal.
“That is what we look for in the return leg over here in Cyprus.
“Our fans will fill up the stadium and we want them to put the same pressure on Aberdeen as we had over in Scotland.”
