Omonia (Cyp) vs Olympiacos Piraeus (Gre) Prediction & Betting tips
Omonia Nicosia was without a doubt the surprise team of this year’s Champions League qualification. The hype about the Cypriots now seems to be over. In the first leg of the Champions League play-offs, Omonia conceded a 2-0 defeat at Olympiacos Piraeus and now has her back to the wall.
That the Greek representative is far superior to the Cypriot rival was impressively demonstrated in the first leg. Omonia Nicosia was defending for over 90 minutes. In the second leg, the Cypriots will have to act much more aggressively in order to compensate for the away defeat from last week.
It is quite possible that the Greeks will take advantage of this space and win the second match. A prognosis is always recommended. Further betting tips for the premier class can be found under the betting base category Champions League Tips.
Omonia’s fairy tale in the Champions League is drawing to a close. After Nicosia caused a sensation in the qualifying rounds against teams like Ararat-Armenia, Legia Warsaw and Red Star Belgrade, the Greek favorites from Piraeus are expected to be over – one step before they move into the group stage.
Omonia Nicosia will have to turn a 0-2 from the first leg to make it into the group stage of the premier class. But there is still a consolation for the Cypriots. Omonia will take part in the group stage of an international competition for the first time this season – probably the Europa League.
It is quite possible that the clovers from Nicosia will also prove their strong performances from the CL qualification in the group stage of the Europa League. The fact that there is definitely potential in the Omonia squad has been impressively demonstrated in recent weeks. After all, the Armenian, Polish and Serbian champions were eliminated from the CL qualification.
In the first leg of the current play-offs, the Cypriots played to a draw and largely kept the Greek offensive in check. The defensive bulwark of Omonia was only cracked in the second half. The last-minute goal to make the final score 0-2 worsened the situation. In the second leg, Omonia now has to take a big risk to make the comeback against Olympiacos.
Coach Henning Berg will be forced to align his team offensively. Even a single goal conceded on Tuesday evening lets the last glimmer of hope for the Champions League group stage evaporate. Compared to the squad from last week, Omonia has no new losses to complain about.
Berg is expected to start from the first leg. With no offensive accents in the last week, Omonia Nicosia faces a mammoth task against Olympiacos Piraeus. Predicting it will involve a lot of risk.
Olympiacos are only one step away from the Champions League group stage. With the home win last week, the Greek champions set the course for entry and will only have to manage the good result. In contrast to the Cypriots, who had no game last weekend, Olympiakos still had to compete in the domestic league.
In the Greek Super League, the red and whites from Piraeus celebrated a safe home win over Panetolikos. Coach Pedro Martins spared numerous top performers during the game. In Nicosia, the Portuguese will again compete with the best line-up. The Olympiakos coach was spared from personal restrictions recently.
If it goes to the current form of Olympiacos, progress against Omonia Nicosia is only a matter of form. There have been four wins for the red-whites in the last four competitive games, all of which were kept clean. In addition, Olympiakos can count on the counter game on Tuesday evening and punish risky advances by the opponent.
If the red-whites from Rand-Athens can score an away goal on Tuesday evening, Omonia Nicosia needs four goals to eliminate Olympiacos from the Champions League. For the team of head coach Martins, an away goal in Nicosia has priority. The offensive qualities for this are definitely there.
On Tuesday evening, the Portuguese will forego major changes in the squad. It is quite possible that Martins will start again with players like Valbuena and Masouras on the wings.
