Manchester United vs Omonia betting tips: Europa League preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

Manchester United were given a bit of a fright in Cyprus last Thursday, so will be hoping for a more straight-forward victory this time.

A week ago, the 20,000+ inside GSP Stadium believed a real upset was on the cards when Karim Ansarifard fired Omonia in front.

Nevertheless, substitutes Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial both came on and scored, the former doing so twice.

Thus, by the time Nikolas Panayiotou bagged Omonia’s second of the night, he was unable to spark a comeback; 3-2 it finished.

This means Manchester United have six points on the board, beaten by Real Sociedad at home before a 2-0 victory over Sheriff in Chișinău.

If Erik ten Hag’s team want to win this group, they need to keep pace with La Real and then win when those two meet in San Sebastián in November.

Given that they face Newcastle (H), Tottenham (H) and Chelsea (A) in the next ten days, expect ten Hag to rotate heavily here.

Omonia meanwhile are rock bottom of Group E, without a point to their name.

Led by Neil Lennon, they won last season’s Cypriot Cup, but have now won just one of 15 matches in UEFA group stages.

An emphatic home victory should be on the cards at Old Trafford.
