Team News: AEL Limassol
There aren’t many selection issues, with just a single fitness concern for the AEL Limassol gaffer to be concerned about from an otherwise fully-primed group. Alexander Kacaniklic (Cruciate Ligament Injury) will miss out.
Team News: Omonia Nicosia
In an otherwise healthy group of players, there is only the sole fitness problem for the Omonia Nicosia gaffer to be concerned about. Novica Erakovic (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be playing here.
When taking everything into account, AEL Limassol will have a tough ask to break down this Omonia Nicosia lineup who we reckon should score at least once to put them ahead.
We’re therefore predicting a highly competitive game with a 0-1 victory for Omonia Nicosia when all is said and done.
