Team News: Omonia Nicosia
Eric Bauthéac (Medial Collateral Ligament Knee Injury) and Ioannis Kousoulos (Knee Injury) will not be taking part for Omonia Nicosia gaffer Henning Berg.
Team News: Apollon Limassol
Apollon Limassol has multiple availability issues to deal with. Valentin Roberge (Unknown Injury) and Nicolas Diguiny (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be making appearances.
Our thinking is that Apollon Limassol are likely to find the back of the net against this Omonia Nicosia team, although that possibly won’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re predicting both teams to score in a 2-1 winning score for Omonia Nicosia when the full-time whistle blows. Could easily see this go either way.
