It’s a low absenteeism rate, with just the lone fitness concern for the Omonia Nicosia boss to be concerned about from of an almost fully healthy set of players. David Ramírez (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is sidelined.
Team News: AEK Larnaca
Thanks to a completely injury-free squad available for selection, AEK Larnaca manager Imanol Idiákez does not have any fitness worries at all coming into this game.
We’re of the opinion that Omonia Nicosia have it within them to dominate possession and create several successful chances.
At the same time, AEK Larnaca might well find it a difficult task to break down their defence although we do see them being dangerous at times, too.
We’re therefore anticipating a fairly comfortable 3-1 win for Omonia Nicosia by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
