Stadium: Old Trafford

Manchester United should close in on qualifying for the Europa League knockout stage by brushing aside Omonia Nicosia at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils made hard work of winning last week’s clash in Cyprus 3-2 but are backed to enjoy a much smoother success on home turf.

We’re taking 10/3 they prevail by exactly three goals as our opening Man Utd vs Omonia Nicosia prediction.

Manchester United Odds

United were almost undone by self-inflicted damage at GSP Stadium, with a Tyrell Malacia blunder helping Omonia to claim a 1-0 half-time lead.

Substitutes Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial then combined to put the Red Devils in control at 3-1 up.

However, Victor Lindelof’s error allowed Omonia to pull one back and set up an unnecessarily nervous finish.

The 2017 winners and 2021 runners-up are at least back on course to qualify, having previously recovered from a 1-0 loss to Real Sociedad by beating Sheriff 2-0.

Erik ten Hag’s side put in another mixed display at Everton on Sunday, showing some clear signs of promise, but also being guilty of too much sloppy play when in possession.

The highlight of that victory was seeing Cristiano Ronaldo score his 700th career club goal with a clinical decider.

“When you score 700 goals, it’s a huge performance,” declared Ten Hag. “I’m really happy for him, I congratulate him on that performance.

“I’m also happy it’s his first goal this season in the Premier League – he had to wait for it and I’m sure there will be more goals.”

Ronaldo missed several good chances to net in Nicosia but should now be more settled after that Goodison strike.

Looking at the 7/2 to hit the target in both halves here.

Omonia Nicosia Odds

Omonia started out as longshots to advance from this pool and looked set to really struggle after losing 3-0 at home to Sheriff first up.

However, they deserve plenty of credit for putting that poor result behind them, even if they are still pointless.

Neil Lennon’s side were level late on at Real Sociedad thanks to Bruno’s equaliser before eventually going down 2-1.

Karim Ansarifard and Nikolas Panagiotou took their chances well versus United, while Bruno again caught the eye.

However, Monday’s 1-0 loss at AEL Limassol made it three defeats in six Cypriot league games this term and they were only seventh in the table last season.

If United approach this match in a disciplined manner, it should be plain sailing for them.

We like 7/5 for the Red Devils to be more than one goal ahead at half-time for our final Man Utd vs Omonia Nicosia prediction.
