Our prediction for this Champions League match:
A spot in the Champions League playoffs will be at stake when Omonia and Crvena Zvezda go head to head at Neo GSP Stadium. The Serbian champions booked their place in round 3 by beating Europa FC and FK Tirana, and they are seen as favourites to make it to the playoffs. Dejan Stankovic’s troops have been showing signs of improvement in the national championship, and seeing that there will be no spectators in Wednesday’s clash, away win should be considered.
The good news for the visitors is that key attacker El Fardou Ben has recovered in time to face Omonia. The Cypriotes, on the other hand, did well to shock Legia in the second qualifying round, with the team keeping their second consecutive clean sheet in the process. However, preventing Crvena Zvezda attackers from scoring is easier said than done. Yet another man to watch in the away team will be former Los Angeles Galaxy ace Aleksandar Katai.
