Omonia vs Manchester United LIVE: Europa League updates as Cristiano Ronaldo declined

“It was a reality check” – Erik ten Hag on City game before EL game vs Omonia

Manchester United are hoping to get back on track after a painful 6-3 defeat by Manchester City on Sunday. They travel to Cyprus to face Omonia in their third Europa League game and could use a win to secure their place in Group E. An opening loss to Real Sociedad left Erik ten Hag’s side no room for error and Omonia should be perfect opponents to regain confidence in the team.

The Cypriot side, now managed by former Celtic, Botlon and Hibernian coach Neil Lennon, are yet to find their way in the Europa League this season and have conceded five goals in their first two defeats. Omonia also had a slow start in the domestic league but kept two clean sheets in their last two games and secured two wins.

On paper this is United’s game to lose but Ten Hag needs to get their players back together after their ‘reality check’ defeat in the Manchester derby. Cristiano Ronaldo was absent on Sunday and worried about not getting on the pitch. So expect the 37-year-old forward to have a role to play tonight.

Follow all the action as Manchester United take on Omonia in the Europa League:


Omonia 0-0 Manchester Utd

12 min: Christian Eriksen brings the ball over to the left and passes it to Jadon Sancho. He tries to weave his way into the box but has too many defenders to get past and decides to send him back to Tyrell Malacia.

Malacia hooks a cross to the back post but it misses and jumps over Jan Lecjaks to go for the goal kick.


Omonia 0-0 Manchester Utd

9 minutes: Save! Omonia’s goalkeeper flicks the ball into midfield but United quickly retrieves it and sends it down the field to Antony, who came in from the right. He takes a touch and slides the ball into the box where Cristiano Ronaldo is waiting in the room.

The angle forces Ronaldo to shoot with his left foot, but he nails it on target, forcing Fabiano to play a low save on his left.


Omonia 0-0 Manchester Utd

6 minutes: Opportunity! That’s nice from Manchester United. First, Dalot flicks another cross into the box that falls for Fernandes but he can’t put a shot away.

Instead, they fall off and come down again on the left side. Fernandes sneaks into the box before passing the ball to Jadon Sancho, who shoots and sees his shot wide of the near post.


Omonia 0-0 Manchester Utd

3 minutes: The visitors try to work the ball on the left side of the field but can’t find a way through. Eriksen then flicks to Diogo Dalot, who floats a cross towards Bruno Fernandes into the box.

Nemanja Miletic slips in front of United’s captain and nods the ball back to the corner.


Kick off: Omonia 0-0 Man Utd

Omonia gets the ball rolling in Cyprus and works the ball through the center of the field and runs into Christian Eriksen and Casemiro’s press.

The home team turns back and shoots the ball to goalkeeper Fabiano, who shoots it long down the right wing. Manchester United will be desperate to prevail tonight.

A win here would be a big confidence boost for Erik ten Hag’s men.


Omonia vs Manchester United

Manchester United will become the third English side to meet Omonia Nicosia in Europe, after Arsenal in the 1994/95 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup and Manchester City in the 2008/09 Uefa Cup. The Cyprus team has lost all four games.

This will also be United’s first European meeting with a side from Cyprus.

The only Premier League side to have previously faced a Cypriot club in the Europa League was Everton against Apollon Limassol in 2017/18.


Casemiro will feel ‘disrespected’ at Manchester United, claims Rio Ferdinand

Rio Ferdinand believes Casemiro will feel ‘disrespected’ due to a lack of opportunities since joining Manchester United.

Signed from Real Madrid this summer for a sizeable fee, the Brazilian midfielder is looking for a new challenge after almost a decade in the Spanish capital.

The 30-year-old is yet to find his way into Erik ten Hag’s regular squad but will start the Manchester derby under substitutes, with Scott McTominay favored in a defensive midfield role.

Casemiro played half an hour off the bench in his fourth league appearance for his new club and started his only appearance to date against Real Sociedad in the Europa League at the beginning of September.


Ronaldo nearing 700

Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo needs just one goal to mark his 700th club career.

Ronaldo’s first career goals came 20 years ago tomorrow, when he scored twice in Sporting’s 3-0 win over Moreirense on 7 October 2002.


Will Ronaldo score?

Cristiano Ronaldo starts for Manchester United tonight after being knocked out by Manchester City at the weekend. Will the 37-year-old be included in the top scorers list tonight?



Omonia promoted Loizos Loizou is determined to shine against “Idol” Cristiano Ronaldo

Omonia Nicosia record-breaker Loizos Loizou believes Cristiano Ronaldo remains the best in the world – but is ready to prove why he is one of Europe’s rising stars.

The 19-year-old is set to bring even more misery to Manchester United when they travel to the Europa League’s GSP Stadium on Thursday.

As Omonia’s youngest player and goalscorer, making his debut aged just 15, he carries the hopes of his hometown club and his country as he is also the youngest player in Cyprus history.

Thursday’s Group E game represents Omonia and Loizou’s chance to further pressure Erik ten Hag after United’s 6-3 Premier League win at Manchester City.

Ronaldo has been an unused substitute at Etihad and his influence has fallen dramatically this season, but Loizou remains one of his greatest admirers. Omonia vs Manchester United LIVE: Europa League updates as Cristiano Ronaldo declined
