On Thursday, Omonia Nicosia suffered an away defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford. Man U were looking to pick up points after winning their previous two games against Omonia Nicosia away and Sheriff Tiraspol away, by 3-2 and 2-0 respectively. Omonia had lost their previous match against Manchester United. Man U are currently 2nd with 9 points from 4 matches, while Omonia sit in 4th, with 0 points from 4.

After a goalless first half, Man U piled on the pressure in the second and were rewarded, thanks to a goal from Scott Mctominay just before the final whistle. The match ended 1-0 to Man U.

Substitutions for Man U included Jadon Sancho, Luke Shaw, Christian Eriksen and Scott Mctominay for Antony, Tyrell Malacia, Fred and Casemiro, respectively.
