Omonia Nicosia vs PAOK
Europa League
Date: Thursday, 3 December 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Neo GSP Stadium (Nicosia).

Winless in the campaign group stage so far this term, Omonia Nicosia will have to do wonders to make a comeback in the group to reach the playoffs. The 2-1 loss on the road against Granada was their third consecutive defeat and the fourth game in EL schedule without a win.

PAOK has picked up 5 points in the group table from a win and 2 draws in their 4 appearances. They can still make it to the playoffs in the tournament. The visitor was unbeaten in their three EL clashes until the last fixture, in which they lost on the road to PSV with a 3-2 scoreline.

Omonia Nicosia vs PAOK Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Their previous encounter resulted in a 1-1 draw at PAOK.
  • They had met before only in the 1976 Champions League.

Omonia Nicosia vs PAOK Prediction

There is no doubt that the match is sizing to be an away win in full-time. PAOK has an unbeaten run in the tournament other than the last EL encounter in their schedule. Meanwhile, Nicosia has won none of their EL fixtures this term in the group and is also on a losing trend for the past three matches.

Omonia’s form doesn’t improve much at home, where they have scored just once across their last five competitive home games. The host enjoys the ground advantage, but their overall form holds them back in the game. In the reverse fixture this season, they had shared the spoils.

PAOK has improved now, which is why backing the away team seems to be the ideal choice. On the other hand, European involvement has taken its toll on Omonia Nicosia as they endure a nine-game winless run in all major competitions in the schedule.

The away win in full-time will probably be the best bet to yield decent returns in the encounter.
