Omonia Nicosia vs Man United preview & prediction

Match preview

Manchester United will try to recover from their Manchester derby defeat when they return to Europa League action against Omonia in Group E on Thursday night.

The Red Devils have three points from their first two games to sit second in the rankings, while their Cypriot hosts are at the bottom with no points.

Competing in Group E with the likes of Real Sociedad and Manchester United was always going to be difficult for Omonia, whose continental journey is on the verge of being cut short after defeats to Sheriff Tiraspol and Sociedad.

Omonia occupy fourth place on the table after two matches, with only one goal scored and five conceded in continental action so far, but they have at least managed to claim back-to-back domestic wins over Enosis and Doxa in recent weeks.

Winning four consecutive Premier League games would appear to be ideal preparation for the trip to Omonia, but Man United were simply ripped to shreds by those in sky blue.

Man United have now lost two of their last three games in all competitions under the ex-Ajax coach, and the Red Devils currently sit three points behind group leaders Real Sociedad. Although Man United and Omonia have never met in a competitive match before, the hosts will be encouraged by the Red Devils’ lacklustre defensive efforts over the weekend.
