The home team reached the group stage of the Europa League in a truly spectacular way. Although they had only one obstacle to achieving their desired goal, we must say that no one gave them significant chances against the Belgian Gent.
Charalampous played two truly outstanding games and was the most responsible for the great success of his team both times. We could see that Omonia managed to impose the desired rhythm both times against Gent. Also, they controled the situation on the field, and we must mention that both matches were played at a very fast pace.
Omonia is very dangerous at home, they are characterized by extreme aggressiveness, and what is perhaps the most important – they come up with potential scoring chances quite easily.
We believe that they will attack the Sheriff’s team without any respect.
We cannot characterize the European journey of the team from Moldova as impressive. With many difficulties, they eliminated Zrinjski and Maribor in the Champions League qualifiers. But, they were stopped at the first serious obstacle.
Viktoria was more successful in both games, thus sending Sheriff to the playoffs for placement in the Europa League. The Moldovan team played 0:0 against the weak Pyunik twice, and thanks to better execution of penalties, they reached the group stage of the Europa League.
It was clear from the few games Sheriff played that they struggle a lot against opponents that play strong defense. They “opened up” against Viktoria Plzen, and we must say that they acted really harmoniously on the field. If they want to achieve scoring success, they will have to be much more engaged in the attack field.
Injuries and suspensions
There are no significant absences. It is expected that both teams will run to the field in their strongest formations.
Omonia vs. Sheriff Prediction
Given that in Group E, in addition to Sheriff and Omonia, there are also Manchester United and Real Sociedad, it is realistic to expect that Omonia and Sheriff will fight for third place.
We believe that neither one nor the other will be satisfied with one point won, so for that reason, we believe in a significantly more offensive approach.
Considering that Omonia has more than solid offensive potential, we believe that we could already see at least one goal in the first half.
Prediction: Bet Builder – Over 2 goals and Under 8 goals
