Team News: Omonia Nicosia
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the sole fitness concern for the Omonia Nicosia manager Neil Lennon to be concerned about thanks to an otherwise robust group of players. Andronikos Kakoullis (Muscle Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Enosis Neon Paralimni
Owing to a completely injury-free squad to choose from, the Enosis Neon Paralimni boss Sotiris Antoniou has zero fitness concerns at all ahead of this game.
We’ve got the feeling that Omonia Nicosia will probably have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
Conversely, Enosis Neon Paralimni may well find it hard to get shooting opportunities although we do think that they will probably end up managing to get on the scoresheet, too.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a 3-1 winning margin for Omonia Nicosia when the full-time whistle blows.
