Is Apollon Limassol v Everton on TV? Plus everything else you need to know about Europa League clash

Everton travel to Cyprus tonight for a Europa League match which has absolutely no significance for either of the teams involved.

Except that Apollon Limassol will be playing in front of their own fans, and Everton have taken a full allocation of 1,400 fans to the island.

And, of course there's always the wooden spoon position to avoid. Everton will need to win in Cyprus to avoid finishing bottom of the group - while Atalanta host Lyon for the honour of topping a group the Italians currently head by a single goal.

Is it on TV?

Simple answer. Yes.

BT Sport2 are screening Everton's final Group E match, with the match also streamed live on BTSport.com while the BT Sport app will also be showing a live stream.

Why?

We honestly can't answer that. Other than it's a long standing commitment.

And to think, TV companies didn't show the home leg of the Hajduk Split qualifier, a match which actually meant something, because it clashed with the France v Ireland Women's Rugby World Cup tie.

But Evertonians will get the chance to check out some of the club's up and coming young talent.

And you can also follow the match on our Live Blog, with Phil Kirkbride reporting from Cyprus and the Jones Boys - Neil and Adam - here at Old Hall Street.

What time is kick-off?

A nice, early 6pm start. Unless you're still on the commute home. In which case you can catch up with Arsenal v BATE Borisov later on.

Who is the referee?

Sebastien Delferiere heads the contingent of Belgian officials.

He speaks French, Dutch and English so will have no problem with conversing with many of the Blues players.

Who should we look out for?

There could be as many as EIGHT debutants in Cyprus - with Harry Charsley expected to start and Alex Denny, Fraser Hornby, Nathan Broadhead, Stephen Duke-McKenna, Michael Collins, Shayne Lavery and Anthony Gordon all training at the GSP Stadium last night.

Of course that would be the most EFC debutants since their very first competitive match against Bolton in the 1887 FA Cup!

Six players made their debuts against BATE Borisov in 2009, while a further six faced Preston North End in the FA Cup in the first match staged after World War II in 1946.
