Team News: Omonia Nicosia
From a largely available squad, there’s only the lone fitness problem for the Omonia Nicosia manager Henning Berg to be concerned with. Ernest Asante (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
We believe that AEK Larnaca may well find it hard to see themselves scoring against this Omonia Nicosia side who we think will get the vital goal that wins it.
That’s why we have predicted a very even contest with a 0-1 advantage for Omonia Nicosia at the end of the match.
It should be a good one.
