AC Omonia prediction

Despite opinion being that we are set to cruise into the group stages, caution should definitely be heeded as it is a very tricky return fixture that lies ahead, and one which will be even trickier if we concede an early goal.

AC Omonia are no mugs and caused enough problems in the first leg to suggest we will have to be at full tilt this evening.

I don't see Hughes tinkering with the line-up, and I'm sure he would have been looking to work on the defence this week as we seek to turn round our fortunes and avoid a third defeat in a row.

I'm sure a few anxious faces will be spotted in the crowd, but my feeling is by half-time things should be calmer and I take us to come out of this with a 3-1 victory on the night.

vote it up!

The UEFA Cup, or the Europa League as it will soon be called, should be won by English clubs every year. Middlesbrough reached the final (heck, so did Rangers!) and that just shows the contempt other "big" footballing nations must give the tournament.

Villa or Man City should win the whole thing - though probably Villa, as it's the "biggest" trophy they can realistically win for the next few decades, at least, assuming every new takeover makes their owner look poorer and poorer (not saying that's a good thing, just reflecting on the situation).
