Omonia Nicosia vs Manchester United Preview
Thursday, October 6th, 17:45 (UK)
After the derby day disaster which was Sunday, Manchester United will now look to put their Premier League woes behind them with a trip to Europe. A trip that takes them to the Cypriot capital of Nicosia, as Omonia are set to open the GSP Stadium doors.
While they do so with a rather familiar face at the managerial helm and with Neil Lennon currently in the hot seat. The former Celtic boss will be keen to test his acumen against the Red Devils.
Although it is fair to say that Omonia Nicosia have shown little in the way of European acumen thus far. With two defeats from as many Europa League outings, they are currently propping up Group E.
Then again, United’s plight is not all that much better either and although they got off to a promising start on Matchday 1. Their victory over Sheriff Tiraspol was then followed by defeat at home to Real Sociedad.
This means the Red Devils currently find themselves lying 2nd in this four-team mini-league. With only the winner assured direct passage to the Round of 16, Erik ten Hag’s men will need to return to winning ways.
Especially after Sunday’s derby day disaster is still ringing in their ears and the best way to remove that painful sound is by returning from sunny Cyprus with maximum points in their hand luggage.

There is no doubt that Manchester United need to restore a substantial amount of faith from their supporters. With Omonia Nicosia serving as Thursday’s opposition, this could well be the first step on the road to recovery.
As there is little to no value in backing the Red Devils to win in Cyprus, I have opted for something slightly different and although I only envisage an away win, I do think honours will be even after 10 minutes.
Neil Lennon’s sides are never ones to give away early advantage and although opposition quality will shine through in the end, an early stalemate is the first selection for my Thursday betting slip.
While this fixture should also provide Cristiano Ronaldo an opportunity to start for United and after scoring in Moldova during Matchday 1, I am backing the Portuguese forward to do the same on Thursday
With the former Real Madrid star putting his name on the scoresheet, I think it will be one of a maximum of three additions and therefore, under four total goals is also neatly placed on my upcoming betting slip.
In addition to this, I think the hosts will struggle to lay a glove on the visitors and for this reason, I have also opted for both teams not to score. This means when you add all four components together, odds of 5.00 are very tempting indeed.
- Draw at 10 Minutes
- Cristiano Ronaldo to score anytime
- Under 4 total goals
- Both teams to score – no
