The UEFA Europa League continues this evening as we push forward through to the knockout stages. All of the clubs involved know the value of going far in a competition like this and while it may not hold the same kind of prestige as the UCL, it’s certainly a worthwhile piece of silverware. Today, we’re going to take a look at what should be a fascinating encounter between Omonia Nicosia and Manchester United.

Omonia Nicosia

Omonia Nicosia let themselves down last season by falling into the relegation bracket but even after doing so, they were able to edge out Europa League qualification as a result of winning that section. Alas, their inconsistency is a far cry from their glory days, leaving many to wonder what kind of performance they can put on given their seemingly permanent role as underdogs.

Team News

The hosts have a fully fit squad to choose from with very few changes expected from the team that beat Doxa on Saturday.

Manchester United

Manchester United have had a rollercoaster ride of a campaign thus far and for the most part, it hasn’t been good news. They can hang their hat on their resurgence but the defeat to Manchester City at the weekend reminded us all that there’s still a long way to go, which is one of the reasons why Erik ten Hag should see the UEL as a nice form of rehabilitation in the weeks ahead.

Team News

The injury list is growing stronger for United with van de Beek, Dubravka, Wan-Bissaka, Varane and Maguire all missing out, although Martial and Rashford should feature after returning in the derby.

Factors to Consider

  • Man United 2nd in Group E of the Europa League whereas Omonia are 4th.
  • Omonia have won three and lost three of their last six games.
  • Man United have won four and lost two of their last six games.
  • Omonia have scored 11 goals and conceded nine in their last six games.
  • Man United have scored 10 goals and conceded eight in their last six games.

Conclusion

Omonia are going to put up some kind of resistance and they’ll give it a good go going forward, but it isn’t going to be enough. United are wounded but they’re more than good enough to ease to a pretty comprehensive win here, even if they don’t put out their full strength squad. We’re going to get behind a 2-0 United victory that could be more if they get their tails up.
